  1. Windage Compensation

    Windage Compensation By Jack Peterson, Producer of Best of the West TV Show Anyone that has spent much time in Wyoming knows that the wind can really blow here. According to the University of Wyoming’s website at [URL="http://www.uwyo.edu"]www.uwyo.edu[/URL], “Wyoming contains over 50% of the United States’ top categories for wind energy resource”. Whether it’s the plains of eastern and southern Wyoming or the mountain valleys and peaks of the western Rockies, the wind can be a factor for hunters on any given day of the...
  2. A Reconstructed Ruger

    A Reconstructed Ruger By Les Voth Last summer I tried selling my Ruger Mark II VT. This 28 inch barreled factory firearm was too heavy to carry on a hunt. I have a custom Remington in the same 6.5 Creedmoor caliber that was more practical, so it had to go. Unfortunately, no one wanted it. So after a few months on consignment, I took it back home. The store it was on consignment at had used it for weekend entertainment, and it showed. The squeaky clean barrel was badly fouled, among other...
  3. Sig Sauer KILO 2200 Laser Rangefinder Review

    Sig Sauer KILO 2200 Laser Rangefinder Review By MeccaStreisand Great googly moogly! What an amazing bit of kit, really! The new Sig Sauer KILO 2200 is just spectacular beyond words, and you won’t even begin to be able to understand until you own one of these laser rangefinders, or find someone that’ll let you try one out. Well that was a surprise wasn’t it? An excited first paragraph about a laser rangefinder, coming from me of all people. Let me explain: I’ve passionately hated laser...
  4. 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...
  5. 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...
  6. 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...
  7. 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...
  8. 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...
  9. 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)...
  10. 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...
  11. 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...
  12. 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...

    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...
  14. 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...
  15. 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...
