We’ve all read rifle reviews before – a regurgitation of spec sheets, some pictures of tightly packed bullet holes on paper and a detailed examination on this minute aspect or that which results in a clear winner. As a dedicated shooter I enjoy reading such articles and feel they have earned their place amongst the pages of hunting publications but this review isn’t going to be that. Well, maybe a little bit of that, but not the focus. We are going to attempt to shift the paradigm. We are going to talk about the high points of the rifles features. You’ll see some images of tightly packed groups (the tightness of which may have been influenced by copious amounts of coffee during early morning shooting sessions) and probably read some detailed examinations, mostly at my expense, but I digress. What you will see and read is something not often found in rifle reviews, which is real life, in the field hunting experience from first-time hunters with their first trophies to seasoned vets that have been there and done that – including winning shooting competitions and harvesting an array of trophy western game.
