  2. 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.

  3. Sacrifice For Quality or The Case For Custom

    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...
  4. 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.

Not only was it accurate over a variety of distances, but it did not use much powder, had little...

  8. Buck Fever Hits A Snag

    I suddenly caught some movement in the bottom of the draw...it was white...could it be a tail? I grabbed my spotter and pulled the gun saddle rest off the tripod. I attached the spotter and dialed it in. My prayers were answered. There he was! I had not laid eyes on him hard horned this year. His antlers were darker and way heavier than I had expected. I quickly got Rick into his shooting...
  9. The 270 and Reloading

    The .270 and Reloading by Charles Smith Okay, I confess; I have a love affair with the .270 Winchester Short Magnum (WSM) and reloading. This affair with the .270 WSM began when I began my quest for “The Lunchbox Hunter’s Long Range Rifle” or what I term a “Multi-Purpose Hunting Rifle” (MPHR). Currently, my MPHR is a Winchester Model 70 Shadow in .270 WSM. However, the research that led me...
