Tested: Ruger Hawkeye African, Newly Chambered in 280 Ackley Improved
by Mike Dickerson
From time to time, Ruger produces the rifles in chamberings more suitable for hunting African plains game and big game elsewhere. The newest of these is the Ruger Hawkeye African chambered in 280 Ackley Improved. For my money, Ruger knocked it out of the park with this gun.
398 Inch Bull Taken with New Two-Seventy Cartridge: The 6.8 Western
by Aram Von Benedikt
There’s a new cartridge on the block, and it’s one cool customer. Built to fulfill the desires of the classic .270 Winchester shooting crowd while meeting the demands of today’s long-range shooting and hunting protocol, the brand-new 6.8 Western steps into the arena and doffs its ten-gallon hat.
If it is adventure that you seek, then you will find it hunting mountain lion, bobcat or lynx in the winter months. These hunts can be extremely physical and being well-prepared can certainly enhance your experience.
I can’t emphasize how important the ability to start a fire is in an emergency situation, whether you’re a hiker, hunter, or everyday traveler. There are a ton of different fire starters out there, but have you ever wondered just how do they stack up against one another?
As the New Year rings in every Dec 31, most hunters believe that they will have to wait until September to get the opportunity to chase fur and feathers again, as most of the big game seasons have closed and for the most part the only season open is waterfowl.
