making long range hits easy!

Firearms News Digital Contributor Neal Shera was peering through my old spotting scope as I reloaded the Howa bolt gun. With the magazine locked into place, I fought with the bolt to get a round chambered. A Lee Enfield it is not. Settling in behind it I checked the wind one last time. I guessed it at 20 mph Full Value. Five hundred yards away hung a 10-inch steel plate spray painted white. Using the Horus’s reticle, I held 2.9 Mils for elevation and then slid it two Mils to the left for windage. I was firing Hornady 6.5mm Creedmoor 120 grain ELD Match ammunition which is a pretty zippy load, but the BC is not that of the heavi er 264-inch match bullets in their line. I’m pretty old…

revolution targets’ portable long range torso frame target

Let’s face it, shooting steel is fun! Having to reset your targets or not knowing if you hit at long range though is a drag. One of the downsides of certain smaller calibers, like the .224 Valkyrie, is not knowing if you connected when you get past 800 yards or so. One new option is Revolution Targets by Pendleton’s Portable Long Range Target. Revolution Targets is a relatively new name in the target world, but they are not new to the firearms industry. They are a subsidiary of Pendleton Safes and Revolution Safes. So, what makes it cool? 1) It is portable, easy to move, quick to set-up, easy to take down. 2) It is very well made for a long service life and even features grease fittings. 3) A long-range hit indicator…

the british sniper, a century of evolution

This is a book you should be aware of if you are interested in sniping, sniper rifles, and the specialized equipment used by snipers. This is especially true if you are a fan of British sniper rifles and equipment. The British Sniper, A Century of Evolution provides a chronological study of the British sniper and his equipment from 1915 until the present. What sets this title apart from the run of the mill works is how comprehensive it is, and how well illustrated it is. Literally, ALL of the sniper rifles issued by the British Army over the past 100 years are included in full color. The photography is excellent, and worth the price of admission by itself. However, the writing, technical data and sheer volume of information takes it…

cold war pdw the czech vz. 61 skorpion

The Cold War years saw the development and introduction of a number of interesting designs which can be considered early Personal Defense Weapons or PDWs. These compact weapons were intended to be issued to military troops whose job specialty did not require or allow them to carry a full-sized rifle, but might require something more than a standard service pistol. At the same time, due to their very small nature they were a natural for employment by elite commando or Special Forces units, for certain covert missions. Noteworthy examples of this breed include the Soviet 9x18mm APS “Stechkin” machine pistol, Polish 9x18mm pm wz.63 ‘Rak’, US 9mm Parabellum M11 submachine gun and the Czechoslovak 7.65mm vz. 61 Skorpion. Of this group, the Czech vz. 61 Skorpion stands out due to…
