Winchester’s XPR Renegade Long Range SR 300 WSM Part I Long range and well mannered

01/17/2021 While Winchester has been manufacturing bolt action rifles since the Winchester Hotchkiss in the late 1800’s. The Winchester Model 54, introduced in 1925, was the first mass produced civilian bolt action rifle. While I am an old guy… a birthday or two shy of carbon dating old, the only Winchester bolt action rifles that…

The Strange Case of the Missing 7mm/06 Ackley Improved Part II Starring a Ruger Von Hawkeye, P.O. Ackley and some pretty impressive numbers

I’m pretty sure, we won’t be seeing the substance of “Practical Dope on the Big Bores” popping up on a blog any time soon.
