    For 2011 Leupold announced an all new line of rifle scopes dubbed the VX-R. What separates this line apart from the rest of Leupold’s hunting scopes is the fact that it features an all new proprietary FireDot illuminated reticle system. While illuminated reticles are nothing new, Leupold has upped the ante with its innovative and highly functional control system.

    The Model 212 Camo as delivered from Savage.

    Aside from introducing a number of new models to their catalog each year, the engineers at Savage Arms have also kept busy making small changes and improvements to many of their existing models. Some are for the better and others have proven to be for the worse or utterly unnecessary from a functional standpoint, but at least they're not resting on their laurels and are always working to improve upon their products.

    A new shooting season has come and my old Shilen Ratchet rifled barrel was at 1000 rounds fired, but it was still shooting well. Even so I thought maybe it was time to re-chamber it or try a new barrel, but anything that would follow it would really have to be super impressive. I noticed this year that Northland Shooters Supply was offering a new line of barrels. At first I sarcastically thought “Wow, another new barrel maker!” but I then noticed that the barrel was from the makers of Krieger and this sparked my interest. I have owned several Krieger barrels in the past and they have always proven to be a top notch barrel.

    Rimfire Technologies (top) and EGW (bottom)

    If you intend on shooting your .22lr or other rimfires past 100 yards and reducing or eliminating excessive "holdover" as your scope may run out of vertical adjustment, a sloped or MOA base is a must have. This is comparison of the Diversified Innovative Products (DIP) 25 moa base and the Evolution Gun Works (EGW) 20 moa base, and some of my objective opinions of both.

    Out of the secret laboratory of Savage comes a new rifle called the Axis, a lower cost, rugged rifle, based off the Savage 110 design marketed towards the younger shooter, with an all-new modern design. The Axis is designed to compete against the Remington 770 rifle, and other entry class hunting rifles. Savage did a good job of keeping this rifle a secret, as soon as I heard that such a rifle existed, I had to get one to see what it was all about.

    Standard rifling on left, Ratchet Twist on right.

    Needing a new barrel for my long range Savage I decided to go with a Shilen barrel - but not the normal six groove rifled barrel, rather their “Ratchet Rifled” four-groove profiled land barrel. The Shilen “Ratchet Rifled” (or as I call it, the “Ratchet Twist”) barrel has a radical rifling design that has little publicity or little known about it.
