    Scout rifles were first defined and promoted by Jeff Cooper back in the early 1980ís as a new class of general-purpose rifles. Such rifles are based around a bolt-action rifle chambered in .308 Winchester (7.62x51mm), are less than a meter in length, weigh less than three kilograms (6.6-lbs), come with iron sights, are fitted with a practical sling (such as Ching slings) for shooting and carrying, and are capable of hitting a human size targets out to 450 meters ...

    Let's face it, the vast majority of rifle owners out there are hunters, and as hunters they typically only pull their rifles out of the closet or gun safe for a few weeks a year for hunting season. Each fall they dig it out of the back corner of the safe, blow the dust off, search through their stockpile of ammunition for that half a box of rounds they had left over from the previous year, and they head out to the range. They take a few shots to verify it's zeroed or to re-zero and then they're done and satisfied ...

    I have always been a fan of the fast handling offered by rifles fitted with a 20-inch barrel, so when Savage announced a new heavy barreled model with a 20-inch barrel I was keenly interested and immediately put in a quest to receive one in .223 Remington. ...

    First introduced in 2010 as the Savage Edge, the entry level Savage Axis (name changed due to copyright/trademark issues) has taken the shooting world by storm in just a few short years. In fact, last I heard (summer 2012) Savage had sold nearly a quarter million units in two years time which is quite an accomplishment. To put that into perspective, that's 342.5 Axis rifles being sold every single day for two years.

    Model 25 Walking Varminter outfitted with a Harris Benchrest bipod and a Bushnell Elite 3200 3-9x40mm scope.

    Introduced at the January 2011 SHOT Show, Savage's Model 25 Walking Varminter has gotten off to a rather slow start. In fact, it's taken Savage a year and a half to begin shipping them from their factory. The hold-up, as I understand it, had to do with production delays associated with synthetic stock that is unique to this model.

    Like all Model 25's, the new Walking Varminter is based around a beefed up rimfire-style action. The bolt is of the 3-lug design and features a 45-degree throw for better scope clearance. Other features of the action include the adjustable 3.5 to 6-lb AccuTrigger and a side-mount two position safety - both of which are carried over from the rimfire rifles. The action ...

    This is actually the second time I have reviewed a Predator Hunter model in this caliber - the first time being when the Predator Hunter first came out back in the summer of 2007. The only difference was that last time it was a right-hand model with a blind magazine and wearing Mossy Oak Bush camouflage, while this time around itís a left-hand model with a detachable box magazine (DBM) and RealTree MAX-1 camouflage. ...
