    It's no secret that Savage has decided to get into the F-Class game. This should prove to be very interesting since F-Class is one of the fastest growing shooting sports in the world at the moment. Savage has entered two models into this sport to become the only major factory to have a dedicated line of rifles for F-Class use. ...

    2. Scope Mounts

    Game Reaper scope mounts are relatively new to the gun market, and they are a product of DNZ Products located in Sanford, North Carolina. The mounts are made by Certified Machining in the same location. Considering how many firearm related products are now made in China, it's refreshing to see an American made product.

    Game Reaper mounts are machined from billet aluminum into a single piece mount. There are no moving or adjoining parts other that the ring caps. Multiple piece rings/bases will allow for rings to come loose from their bases over time which will let the scope start to wander. On this mount, it is all a single piece of aluminum. The machined billet also allows the base to be light weight while remaining strong. The other ...

    2. Rifle Scope Reviews

    For two years now I've been looking high and low for just the perfect scope to mount atop my Savage Model 93R17-GLV in 17HMR. I had a specific set of requirements in mind for scoping this rifle, but as I found out finding a scope that met those needs was easier said than done.

    The first candidate was a BSA Sweet 17 4-12x40mm with the calibrated elevation turret, but it fell way short of my expectations in regard to both quality and reliability. Second on the list was a Bushnell Elite 3200 4-12x40mm with a ballistic-plex reticle, but the stadia spacing didn't come close to matching up with the 17HMRs trajectory. Several other scopes found their way on and off this rifle, but all were pretty much temporary

    2. Other Reloading Equip. Reviews

    One of the questions most often asked on this website in regards to reloading or hand loading if you prefer is What is the cheapest way I can get started in reloading. The answer is simple enough. The classic Lee Loader.

    This is without a doubt the least expensive way you can enter the reloading scene. For just about twenty bucks invested, you are almost halfway home. Everybody has a hammer lying around, the only other equipment really needed. Although I always used a plastic mallet and highly recommend one, it is not entirely necessary. This is the little package that can and did get me and many other people started in the reloading hobby.

    Inside the convenient plastic box is a neck-sizing die, a de-capping pin, a primer-seating tool, powder dipper and a bullet-seating device. Also included ...

    In today's highly competitive market, companies catering to sportsmen often introduce a multitude of products that for the most part are useless and serve no purpose other than to lighten the customers wallet. Fortunately there are also a large number of products being offered that meet a specific need or perform a specific task that is commonly encountered as well. The hard part is weeding through the advertising dribble and determining exactly which category each product falls within.

    The Wheeler Engineering FAT Wrench (Firearms Accurizing Torque Wrench) is one of those products that falls within the useful category. Anyone who regularly works on firearms know the dreaded feeling of stripping out a screw by over tightening it with ...
