California is the first state to require lead free projectiles for hunting. This requirement will phase in over the next few years, with full implementation taking place by 2019. Unfortunately, that leaves many hunters who use calibers that are unique, or not so mainstream, in a bad spot. They will have lots of lead ammunition […]
Two-Part Video Review and Hunt Report on the Savage B.MAG Heavy Barrel Stainless Rifle chambered for the 17WSM. I had a chance to hunt all over Central California and Northern Arizona with the Savage B.MAG, Heavy Barrel Stainless rifle.

Up until a few weeks ago, the only ammunition you could find with Hornady’s .172 caliber, 15.5 grain NTX bullets was in 17HMR or 17HM2 rimfire ammunition. I received an email from one of the online retailers I buy from, that they got some of the new Hornady .17 Hornet ammunition in, with the 15.5 […]
In my last blog story, I covered getting my Kalibrgun Cricket Air Rifle in .25 caliber zeroed at 65 yards in some testy winds. Yesterday, I had a chance to get out and explore some, new to me, prairie dog country. I took along my Cricket rifle, but the main focus of the day would […]
The Franklin Armory F17-L in .17 Winchester Super Magnum has a lot of firsts. It is the first semi-automatic rifle in .17WSM now available to the general public. It is the first gas piston system, AR15 rimfire rifle (built in partnership between Franklin Armory and Osprey Defense). Lastly, it is the first AR15, chambered in […]
**Update** Unfortunately, due to new regulations passed by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, California residents are no longer allowed to hold “contest hunts” on predators. This vote took place on Wednesday, with the results taking affect immediately, so the Varminter Predator Hunt Picture Contest ended the moment the vote was cast. Thanks for […]
