    10 mm backup

    I personally prefer my 5.25" XDM over my G20, but purely on feel and aesthetics grounds. When the G20 was all I had to carry at the time in bear country, I did not feel the least bit under gunned. Reliability on both with heavy loads (actually, with any loads) has been 100%. OP, you have...

    Keeping Rem 700 Bolt Closed

    I've never had a 700 bolt come open unintentionally, but I can see it could happen under the right circumstances. I do find myself unconsciously checking it on occasion. I've known PH's in Africa who carried their rifle (not 700's) with the safety off and the bolt intentionally raised just...

    Factory 6.5 PRC long action?

    My Fierce Carbon Fury is a long action. 3.75" inside the magazine, so plenty of acreage. Still feeds slick.

    Magneto or labrador

    I used mine for the first time last weekend. Set-up on tripod. It picked up every shot except one, which is most likely because I moved it when I was pressing buttons. That was the only issue I had with aiming it. I used the carpenter square trick for initial aiming. So good. Sure...

    Ruger Number 1 in .257 Weatherby

    Add me to the list of very satisfied Lipsey Ruger No. 1 .257 Wby owners. I concur with the above assessments on accuracy and trigger. My wife and I used mine in Namibia this last June for multiple springbok, gemsbok, zebras, a red lechwe, and a couple of baboons with attitude. Ranges from...
