Varmint Annihilator: DIY Facelift for a 223 Budget Rifle (Savage Axis, Boyds Stock, ATN X-Sight 5)

As much as I love my custom rifles and actions, I know that not everyone can afford them. While quality materials are really nice, you don’t need a full-custom gun for rock chucking. Boyds Gunstocks makes it possible to make a budget rifle your own!  Disclaimer Ultimate Reloader LLC / Making with Metal Disclaimer: (by […]

Boyds XX Walnut stocks for the Marlin .45-70

Deer Rifles: It Doesn’t Take a Cannon

Deer, whether whitetail, blacktail or mule deer, are not huge animals. A big mature buck is rarely over 300 pounds and most are far smaller. They’re also really not very wide from side to side, have smallish bones and their hide isn’t particularly tough. This begs the question: Why do I hear deer hunters so […]

PSA AK-47 Overview

PNW Spring Bear Hunt (45-70 and 7mm PRC)

The rain was pouring down. Lightning and thunder filled the sky. My blind on a steep slope in the Bitterroot Mountains had no roof and was becoming seriously wet. I was in the last few hours of my week-long hunt and hadn’t yet seen a bear. Despite the miserable weather, I remained dry in my […]

Forster Ultra Dies, StaBALL HD and the 7mm PRC

It’s no secret I’ve become fond of the new 7mm PRC cartridge and I was eager to do some loading for it on the Forster Co-Ax press with the new Forster Ultra dies.

Quick Look: RCBS 7mm PRC Dies

7mm PRC has taken the gun world by storm. We were fortunate enough to be part of Hornady’s official launch, creating two custom builds, our Freedom rifle and Bergara full-custom.

Showdown! 7mm Rem Mag -vs- 7mm PRC (In Depth)

For over 60 years, Remington’s 7mm Magnum has been the most popular 7mm magnum, outpacing the 7mm Weatherby Magnum, 7mm STW, 7mm Mashburn, 7mm WSM and 7mm Remington Ultra Mag. Now there’s a new contender for the middleweight champion, the 7mm PRC. So far, it appears to be amazingly popular for a cartridge that was […]

How short? 308 Shorty Build Kick-Off

Though I typically feature more modern cartridges in my rifle builds like the 7mm PRC, I’ve recently developed an affinity for the 308, partly due to testing the Bergara B-14² Crest.
