    Over the past thirty five years I have had the opportunity to field test and evaluate a great deal of long range precision rifle equipment. Some have been high quality, solidly built and well thought out, and others – not so much. As a current member of the Savage Rifle Team, I have been very lucky to get my hands on some really good kit and outstandingly accurate rifles. However, I don’t think I’ve ever been luckier as a precision long range shooter than getting to field test Ashbury’s SuperSport MOD-1 Alloy Series modular rifle chassis. ...

    I always seem to be thinking about the next project rifle and this time I wanted to do something more double duty than usual so I built the rifle to be a target rifle out to 600 yards plus a varmint rifle if the opportunity ever presents itself. ...

    Ever wished someone would offer a single-shot adapter for the Savage Axis? Something that would slip in place of the factor DBM and allow you to easily single-feed cartridges at the range or in a prairie dog town without having to modify anything else on your rifle? ...

At present there are two aftermarket options available to replace the rather heavy and non-adjustable factory trigger - one from Rifle Basix and the other from Timney Triggers. This review is for the latter.

    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.

    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.
