Stock Options

By Ron Spomer

Got an inaccurate rifle? Maybe it’s time for a different handle. Photo: One of the most unusual stocks on any rifle is this weird combination of walnut and metal on the Browning Buck Mark Rifle, a conversion from an autoloading pistol. There was a time not long ago when a rifle was fitted with a wooden handle designed to aid the operator in u... READ MORE

America’s Most Popular OU

America’s Most Popular OU

By Nick Sisley

A very high-quality shotgun for the price, the Browning Citori holds up to extensive shooting. The Browning Citori over-and-under shotgun and its predecessor, the Superposed, are forever linked. Without the Superposed, the Citori would never have been born. The Superposed was on the drawing board for several years before it was introduced in 1931. ... READ MORE

Field Shooting Effectively

Field Shooting Effectively

By Ron Spomer

When your target of opportunity knocks, you need to answer in seconds. Greg was as enthusiastic as an 8-year-old on Christmas morning. His first pronghorn hunt! He had a new .257 Weatherby Magnum with a Zeiss scope that could shoot a country mile. Back home on the bench, he was punching sub-MOA groups with 115-grain Barnes Tipped Triple Shocks. No...

Sauer’s Elegant 303

Sauer’s Elegant 303

By Jon R. Sundra

The 303 is a masterpiece of metal machining. In many ways, the bolt-action rifle is an anachronism. It’s been around since the late 1830s and hasn’t really changed much since the definitive Mauser of 1898. Indeed, if we were to take a brand new rifle like a Winchester Model 70, Remington 700 or a Ruger 77, there’s virtually no dif... READ MORE

The .308 Family

Offspring of the .308 are accurate, compact and easy to shoot. Rifle cartridges may be inanimate, but they do have families. One of the more prolific is the .308 Winchester family, a well-rounded line of nicely balanced cartridges that are fast, powerful, easy to shoot and justifiably popular.

Mossberg’s New Lever Action

Mossberg’s New Lever Action

By Clair Rees

The Model 464 is a classic reborn. With so many semiauto tactical rifles introduced over the last few years, it was refreshing to see O.F. Mossberg & Sons resurrect a style many consider out of fashion. The company’s Model 464 lever rifles would seem right at home in the 19th century. When it comes to hunting rabbits and squirrels, one of... READ MORE

Ballistic Balance

Ballistic Balance

By Richard Mann

How to sort out which load offers the most  balance for your hunting rifle. Balance is important in everything, even in hunting firepower. A ballistically balanced load offers the most power and the flattest trajectory with the least amount of recoil in a sporting-weight rifle. Average muzzle velocity of the most popular big game cartridges i... READ MORE

Smith & Wesson’s 686 Revolver

Smith & Wesson’s 686 Revolver

By John Haviland

This brother of the Model 19 is great for hunting and plinking. Last summer, I bought a Smith & Wesson Model 686 .357 Magnum revolver, and ever since, I’ve been happily shooting it at the range and in the field. The gun shoots tight groups from the bench and balances well in the hands for accurate offhand fire. It digests a variety of loa... READ MORE

Remington’s Classic Rimfire

Remington’s Classic Rimfire

By Clair Rees

After 54 years of service, the Model 552 Speedmaster is still one of the sleekest .22 autoloaders available. I fell in love with the Remington Model 552 Speedmaster .22 the first time I saw it in the Sears and Roebuck window. That was in 1957, when the gun was first introduced and Sears and Roebuck still sold firearms. One of its features was a big... READ MORE
