The Ruger MPR in 350 Legend

Ruger joined the AR 15 market some time ago, and I’d been meaning to see how well they had done on their initial offerings. But life being what it is, I only just recently got the opportunity. Always a glutton for shooting, I jumped in with both feet.

The Legend

No not the Will Smith movie where he takes poorly aimed shots at post apocalyptic deer of some kind as they run through the city with his M4 variant. Im referring to the 350 Legend, and Will Smith would have probably done a little better against deer sized game had he been shooting 180 grain Federal blue box 350 Legend. But hey, zombie apocalypse makes for strange hunting practices.

The JP Sauer Classic Model 100

One way to spot a junkie is they can never say no, I myself, am a rifle-junkie. I know I am because despite my extremely picky preferences and exotic taste in rifles, its rare that I pick one up and don’t want to rationalize a reason why I need to take it home with me. But my addiction and preference notwithstanding, this one struck me as well worth my time.

JP Sauer is a manufacturer of fine firearms, with a history that goes back to pre-war Europe. Their firearms are imported to the US market through Blaser, and there is a great assortment of rifles to choose from. Today we will focus on the model 100 Classic, chambered in a classic cartridge the 30-06.

Why Hunt with a Suppressor?

New and exciting technologies keep entering the hunting market, whether its electronics, optics, or some other new development, it can be hard to keep up with the times. But one of the fastest growing trends is hardly new, its actually very old technology.
People have been using suppressors for a very long time, perhaps the only reason they have recently seen a surge in popularity is perception. The laws surrounding suppressors are strict, and regulated at the federal level. Many people are still under the impression that they are illegal entirely, which was a popular but inaccurate concept propagated by years of ignorance.
In today’s discussion, we are going to talk about suppressors and how they can be a very useful tool when hunting.

Why are Tipped Bullet so Popular?

You may have noticed a trend over the past decade or so, not the gradual return of high-waisted jeans or a familiar form of music past. The trend of which I speak is at the cutting edge of much of our shooting, and it brings more than just a bold new look.
Tipped bullets are quickly becoming the standard from many bullet makers, by tipped I mean they feature a uniform front end that is typically made of some kind of polymer, but can also be another material like aluminum or something else. The purpose of the tip is to increase the bullets uniformity and efficiency, which translate into more consistent and accurate shots. As well as bullets with higher ballistic coefficients which allow them to retain their energy and reduce the effects of wind. Read the rest of the article HERE

Sako 85 Finlight 25-06

In a world of marksmen, there are some names that seem to stick out, or rise to the top. A few of the rifles I dreamt about as I grew up shared a well known and revered name, Sako is one of those legendary manufacturers that can get grown men giddy as a sugared up kid. So when the opportunity came for me to put a Sako in my safe, I was expecting to be pleased.

The Model 85

The model 85 is one of the latest revisions of Sako’s hallowed line of bolt action rifles. It is a six-point-four pound three lug bolt action which requires a shorter sixty-degree throw to operate the bolt. The Finnlight is fed by an all metal detachable box magazine that holds five cartridges. The stainless steel barreled action sits in a synthetic stock with a hunting camouflage pattern. The model I have features a fluted barrel with a threaded muzzle, something I was happy to see. The rifle features a single stage trigger and a two button safety, of which I’ll explain later.
