We hope you’ve already filled a bow tag this season and tasted backstraps again. If not, you’ve still got time to get in on the action. Turn to page 11 to take a look at some of the latest hunting firearms for 2018. We inspected cham- bers, pulled triggers and checked accuracy on a bunch of fine options. It might be time for you to up your game and spring for a new deer or coyote gun. Or you might just want to see what’s out there. Either way, we’re sure you’ll be triggered to get out in the woods, field or treestand. ■…

The X-Bolt’s smooth 60-degree throw proved impressive during testing and made quick follow-up shots a pleasure. BOLT-ACTION BROWNING X-BOLT HUNTER .30-06 Springfield, $899 WHAT WE LIKED: It improves upon a classic A-Bolt design, features a free-floated barrel, extremely crisp trigger and a wide variety of cartridges for whatever game you’re pursuing. WHAT WE’D CHANGE: The proprietary bases and scope rings can be tricky to find. LAUNCHED IN 2008, a little over 20 years after the A-Bolt made its public debut, the X-Bolt made an impact on the bolt-action rifle market. Some of its more noteworthy features are the 60-degree bolt throw, detachable rotary magazine, bolt unlock button, and its recoil inflex technology that helps mitigate recoil by pushing the stock down and away from the…

You can convert the T/C Contender from rim-fire to centerfire with a simple barrel change. IN 1967, Thompson/Center offered the first Contender: a single-shot, hammerfired pistol that could be easily converted to a rifle, a shotgun or a muzzleloader. Although it looked like nothing else on the market at that time, shooters and hunters immediately fell in love with Thompson/Center’s new handgun. In particular, competitive silhouette pistol shooters favored the T/C’s lengthy barrel and robust grip as well as the fact that the Contender could be modified to fire a variety of cartridges. Many of those silhouette shooters were also hunters, and the Contender became one of the top options for handgun hunting.In 2013 Thompson/Center dropped the Contender from their line, but within two years the company brought back…
