    I had been considering a big game hunt for quite some time; considering either Moose or Elk somewhere in the States or Canada, when I stumbled across a posting by Rob Martin on the Savage Shooters website where he was preparing to leave for his hunting trip last October.

    I donít know how many times Iíve been approached by a young hunter and told, ďIím a new hunter wanting to get started in hunting coyotes and, would like you to tell me how itís doneĒ.

    The decision to take a perfectly good rifle apart and start tinkering around with a wildcat chambering was a difficult one to make. However, in time I made my mind up that I had to have something unique and different. The choice was simple; it would be a .257 WSM.

    With the growing popularity in the shooting world of Mil-Dot reticles in rifle scopes, I thought I would take a little time to explain what they are and how they work, as well as some differences in the commonly available models on the market today.

    One of the most frequently asked questions we see on the forum is in regards to scope rings and bases, more specifically what combination of the two will permit clearance of a scope with a specific size objective lens.
