In this part, we’ll discuss components to make a good long range shooting/hunting rifle or system. What are the components that make up a good long range shooting/hunting rifle? Now remember, this is just merely my opinion. Most of these components are ones that I have found that work well for me. There are 3 million different ways to skin the long range cat and they all work great. Barrel, action, stock, trigger, scope, and rings are the components that go into the foundation of a long range shooting and hunting rifle or system. […]

This chapter of the Legacy begins in June of 2014. It was a warm Saturday afternoon in my hometown of Durango.

They also ask me why Blue Mountain Precision is a dealer of Huskemaw and offers their scopes on all of their builds. I have been thinking about how to articulate this and I’m hoping to answer that question the best I can. […]
