    When it comes to long-range shooting, the 338 Lapua Magnum is the rifle cartridge that US military snipers reach for when they need to air it out past 1,000 yards. Currently holding the #3 and #10 positions on the ten longest sniper rifle shots in history, the 338 Lapua Mag is an extremely...

    The 30-30 Winchester and 30-06 Springfield are two of the most popular big game hunting cartridges in North America and have been in production for well over a century.

    When it comes to hunting big game, it’s hard to ignore the 270 Winchester and 30-06 Springfield. Both cartridges see extensive use during rifle hunting season and are the bane of North American whitetail, mule deer, feral hogs, antelope, and elk. There’s no denying that the 270 Win and the...

The evening is brisk, and you are looking forward to the hot coffee that is starting to boil in the blue enamel kettle on the fire. Your hunting buddies soon join you after a...

    I recently bought a used Savage Model 110 30-06. It is completely covered with factory cammo in Mossy Oak Brush pattern. It has a heavy barrel. I cant find anything on this weapon on Savages website. I find similar rifles but none in the 30-06. Can anyone tell me what this rifle may be...

    It was the last weekend of regular deer season, saturday night. A long time member of the deer lease drives up to the camp, and backs his truck up to the scales. That is usually a sure sign that there is a deer in the back of the truck. They get the doe weighed and are stringing it up to skin...

    My Dad had a long time friend that was a masterful gunsmith. This man turned a 1903 Springfield into a beautiful sporter back in the '60s. or early '70s. It's a 30-06, and a fine shooter. I took it to another gunsmith about 10 years ago, and he said I should insure this rifle for $4,000. The...

    "Yeah, I know, we live in the age of diversity. We're supposed to have free choice in all things. That is well and good, but I think the manufacturers are offering us far too much choice in rifle cartridges. The more variety they offer the more costly the manufacturing and distribution, and...

    My friend is building a 1000 yard rifle. He was originally going to go 30-06, but needed to get the barrel reamed from .308 to the 06. He is now considering just going with the 308. Which is the better round for the job?
