  1. Introducing the New and Improved Legacy Portable Shooting Bench

    Introducing the New and Improved Legacy Portable Shooting Bench By Wade Loudamy This is Wade Loudamy, founder of Legacy Shooting Products. I am a long time competitor and precision enthusiast. I grew up reloading, hunting and shooting and began competing in BPCR silhouette in the mid 90’s. I have now come full circle, back to precision bolt guns, and long range precision shooting is my passion. My love for LR precision shooting led me to fill a need among shooters for a bench that is both...
  2. Trijicon HD Binocular Review

    Trijicon HD Binocular Review By Justin Hyer I am a gear junkie. In a perfect world I would make my living testing and evaluating guns, optics, and hunting gear, so when I got the chance to review the HD Binocular from Trijicon I jumped at the opportunity. The Trijicon HD Binocular in its case. I received the binoculars in early October, just in time for the Utah general season spike elk hunt. Trijicon ships these binoculars out in an extremely nice carrying case. The case is built with...
  3. Reading The Wind

    Reading The Wind By Shawn Carlock MY DAD PREPARING FOR A LONG, WINDY CROSS CANYON SHOT If you are new to long range hunting or an experienced veteran, most will agree that the ability to accurately read the wind is what separates a fair shooter from an exceptional one. Let me say that reading the wind is like most anything else; a lot of people have a lot of ideas about how to do it and how to apply it. I have had a fair number of successes in long range competition and in long range...
  4. Rifle Stocks in Broad Strokes

    Rifle Stocks in Broad Strokes By MeccaStreisand Rifle stocks are seemingly simple things. They are the things you bolt all the actual gun parts to, which keeps you from holding all the actual rifle parts themselves. Why should they be so complicated then? Simple. Because they’re the interface between the oodles of different body shapes and the oodles of different gun shapes and even more oodles of use cases. Trying to pair a stock with a rifle can’t be done without some vision of what the...
  5. My Remington's Fall

    My Remington's Fall By Les Voth This past summer my custom Remington 700 Short Action in 6.5 Creedmoor and I burnt plenty of powder, expended many bullets, popping primers and smacking lotsa steel. I learned how to shoot long with confidence, and my Remington only let me down when I fed it badly built ammo. I learned to build better ammo and my groups got smaller. More steel died horribly impactful deaths. Paint turned to dust, gongs rang, bowling pins flew, and Tannerite blew things...
  6. Sig Sauer KILO 2400 ABS Ballistic Rangefinder Review

    Sig Sauer KILO 2400 ABS Ballistic Rangefinder Review By Andy Backus I was pretty excited when I first started hearing rumblings about the new Sig Sauer KILO 2400 ABS Ballistic Rangefinder. A new ballistic version of the most talked about rangefinder I can remember in some time, the Sig Sauer KILO 2000 Rangefinder, sounded like a winner to me. The KILO 2000 had turned the rangefinder market on its head recently by providing long range ranging ability that rivals the top (and most expensive)...
  7. Mooning Coyotes on the Nightshift

    “Mooning” Coyotes on the Nightshift By Eric Ketterer My hunting partner, Tom Haas, and I had been waiting all year (as we do every year) for an opportunity to night hunt coyotes by a full moon in the winter. To do so usually requires a cloudless sky and little or no wind and, of course, a full moon or near to it. And for those who do not hunt in the state of North Dakota, the odds of that happening on the same day are slightly worse than winning the Mega millions lottery or taking a selfie...
  8. November 2016 Tajikistan Hunt

    November 2016 Tajikistan Hunt By Dr. Bob Peterson After I was able to successfully complete my Grand Slam of North American sheep, going on a Marco Polo sheep hunt became a top priority on my bucket list. Once I determined that I could afford to do this, the next priority was to research outfitters. The Internet is full of stories about people who went on these hunts and did not get the sheep they shot. After reviewing many advertisements of different outfitters, I called Dennis Campbell...
  9. Is the 6.5 Grendel a True Long Range Hunting Cartridge?

    Is the 6.5 Grendel a True Long Range Hunting Cartridge? By John Johnston There has been a lot written about this round but I just had that urge to try it out myself. This article has been an ongoing project for well over a year and as you read on, you will understand why. The goal of the 6.5 Grendel cartridge was to provide AR15 shooters a round that could be used in that framework that would be more accurate and effective at ranges up to 800 yards. Using the tried and trued 6mm PPC case...
  10. Ralph Hicks from RTH Firearms Introduces Their Revolutionary Precision Long Range Semi-auto Hunting

    Ralph Hicks from RTH Firearms Introduces Their Revolutionary Precision Long Range Semi-auto Hunting and Competition Rifle Ralph Hicks introduces his new precision semi-auto rifle with sub-sub MOA performance and explains how his team produced it. We’ve all been in a situation where we needed to make a very fast, precise follow-up shot. In most cases, we missed our first shot because of a sudden gust of wind or DOPE was just flat-out wrong. If we fail to make the second shot, the...
  11. Accurately Learned

    Accurately Learned By Les Voth Les' new book, Life Les'ons, is now available on Amazon HERE. Previously, I told the story of my pursuit of one rifle. A custom rifle. A rifle that would do all I needed a rifle to do. A rifle I could accessorize for comfort and pursue accuracy with. The rifle is a trued Remington Short Action. It has a 27.5 inch 8 twist, 6.5 Creedmoor Krieger barrel. An HS Precision stock cradles the action and a Harris bi-pod hold up the business end. A Vortex HS LR 6-24 x...
  12. iota Kremlin Rifle Stock and Triad ZL Scope Ring Review

    iota Kremlin Rifle Stock and Triad ZL Scope Ring Review By Justin Hyer The overcast sky provided a breathtaking sunset that cast beautiful rays of orange and red light across the clouds as the sun buried itself behind the westward mountains. The night had been gorgeous and filled with sightings of numerous deer, but not the elk I was after. I gathered up my gear to begin the trek to the truck and hopefully run into a wandering herd of elk on my way. As I began to work my way up the hill...
  13. Sacrifice For Quality or The Case For Custom

    Sacrifice For Quality or The Case For Custom By Les Voth With this gear, and my friend Mad, I learned to shoot past and beyond my aspirations. I had visions of becoming proficient to 600 yards. I have no good explanation for picking that number beyond the limits of imagination. Mad's Lapua Desert Tech reaching out With many boxes of factory Hornady 140 grain ELD Match ammo, I started hitting steel at Mad's range. From eight inch targets at 536 yards and 739 yards, I progressed out to the...
  14. DIY Euro Mount

    DIY European Mount By Remi Warren ©Elk Hunter Magazine Give it a try; it’s easier than you think When the hunt is over and the meat has long been consumed, I like to look at the antlers on my wall and remember the hunt, the struggle, the good times, and the excitement. Obviously, it’s not practical to do a mount on all your animals, so for many, I really like the look of a European or skull mount; it makes for a great display. In the past, I’ve taken elk and deer to the taxidermist and...
  15. Alaska: the Last Elk Frontier

    Alaska: the Last Elk Frontier By Remi Warren ©Elk Hunter Magazine Chasing Roosevelt Elk in BIG bear country My brother laughed with jubilation and relief as he popped the top off an Alaskan Amber. This was no ordinary beer; it was his celebration beer. "Want one?" he asked. I didn’t. My whole body ached, but when would we ever have this chance again? I looked past the fire we built and past our bear fence, into the dark, and took a sip. It was good. We sat in silence, enjoying that moment...
