    Seems like the long range hunter is low on the priority list of most manufacturers.
    No new bullets or other items to get excited about.
    Although there seems to be a few new scope models out that should excite the tactical crowd.
    Did you see anything that could be useful?

    Oh I don't know. I wasn't there, but just from reports and videos, it doesn't seem like a total loss.

    AI introduced some new skins for their AICS chassis, similar to what Viperskins makes. Manners has a new folding stock option. Couple new powders. New reticle from NF.

    And of course don't forget the most important announcement of the show!! :rolleyes:

    Speaking of the Shot Show, can anyone tell me about Reloader 33. I haven't heard of it before and I imagine that It could be a Powder that many of us have been waiting for and might rearrange some thinking?

    I bet Hollywood will use it in some Terminator movie and make it the next big thing.

    I was hoping for an alternative to the IOR terminator, USO TSN-9, Or the scope March just released with the ridiculous adjustments. Hoping for high magnification and lots of elevation adjustment.

    Reloder 33 might be interesting with heavy weight bullets in the ultra-magnums & 250gr and 300 gr in the .338 Lapua

    Always looking for something to try that is new. But I think I will await the first tests for temp swings on this one before I order any. It was being compared to RL-17 in make up, and the temp swings with 17 are more than I can deal with.

    Funny, my under bed gun is a Marlin 45-70 by Wildwest (aka 457 Alaskan), never felt "UNDERGUNNED" not sure what I would do with all those mounting points? Thought mine worked just fine.

    I sent an email to Mossberg telling them they should have taken the design team out behind the factory and beaten them with that abortion. I also told them it'll be a flop.

    You know the Lever 30-30 was one of the first repeaters used in law enforcement? It fits as a tac model IMHO. I kind of like it.
