    Sheep build, UL backpacking rifle

    I have a HS Precision PHL (left hand) in 270wsm. I believe I could drop it off the side of a mountain and pick it up and it would hit whatever I aimed at. It is a shooter

    Quality Rifle Manufactures

    I have owned a lot of different semi custom rifles and at his price point I would go with a Fierce. To me their features, fit, and finish are above everyone’s else. And again, that is at that price point.

    short mag build

    This is just food for thought. I own two 270wsm rifles and I really like the round. They came out with the 6.8 western and on paper it looks really impressive. It would fit your bill as to recoil, break, and long range capabilities. My only concern would be brass but Winchester is really pushing...

    One new rifle or two?

    There are two trains of thought here. You can compromise some on both ends and go with one rifle to buy or build to your exact specs for each task. If you do this and go the semi custom route I would suggest you look at the HS Precision PHL, Fierce, or Cooper Backcountry. I have owned all...

    What is it with the 270 wsm

    What is it with the 270 wsm

    I have 2. One is a MRC that is a natural killer and the other is a HS Precision PHL that is a laser along with being a natural killer. I don’t know what it is about the 270 wsm but they hit hard and kill. Great round!!

    300 Win Mag???

    Don’t forget about a SAKO. They make some of the best “production” rifles out there. I just had a 280ai built with a SAKO 85 action and it is a dream to shoot. My Smith told me that the SAKO action are as straight and square as any custom actions he gets in. All I know is I have a shooter and I...

    Factory rifle vs custom build

    I just went through the same process. I have custom rifles, semi custom rifles, and factory rifles. To me no doubt the biggest jump is from factory to semi custom. There are a lot of factors to consider. I had so many people say go this route or that route. Personally on this last rifle after...

    7mm or 30 cal? Just for curiosity’s sake

    That question is more difficult to answer than I thought it would be. I love my 30 nosler Montana Rifle and my 300wsm Fierce CT Edge ...... BUT ..... I think (with skepticism) my SAKO custom 280ai, 7stw No.1, and 7rm CCR long range are my favorites. Seriously if you ask me tomorrow and the...

    Cooper backcountry vs Fierce edge

    It was a hard decision. They both are awesome. Out of the 2 that I held the Fierce just fit me better. Now that’s not to say a cooper is not in my future.

    Cooper backcountry vs Fierce edge

    Thanks for all of the input. I made my decision. I went with the Fierce CT Edge in 300 wsm and I could not be happier with my decision. The 100yd target they sent me was very impressive and it was with Barnes ttsx bt factory ammunition and the 1/2” guarantee.
