    Best precision rifle suggestions?

    If you’re able to go a bit north of $2000 budget and don’t mind a second hand rifle I would add NULA (new ultra light arms) or ULA to your search list. pictured below is a 6.5CM My 6.5 CM and 30.06 are both very light but their felt recoil, at least to me, is very manageable.

    Verney Carron Double Rifles

    I have a VC Imperial RB in 450NE and am quite pleased with it. The fit and finish are great and it locks up tight. To top it off it’s quite accurate as well. i think I have posted these pictures previously on another thread but here they are.

    Hunting dogs

    Here is my best hunting buddy who turned 14 years old today. She has long been retired from chasing birds but she still gets excited to go in the fields. During her prime years. Had her images engraved on my shotgun receiver to remember her.

    Hunting trucks

    I have been driving Ford Super Duty trucks since 2004. I use it to get to my hunting/fishing areas then use ATVs or rafts to get to where I need to go. The white 2004 F-250 w/ 6.0 in the picture gave up its ghost a couple years ago. So now I have a 2020 F-350 w/ 6.7 that I drive daily.

    Good morning Shifty. I have been shooting my R8 rifles with various caliber for several years now. I don’t have high round counts for each bbl but I find them to be accurate today as they were first purchased. I think your choice of caliber is excellent. However they have the tendency of...

    Heym Express Rifle Which Calibre?

    I have a Heym Express in 375 H&H and like it a lot. Not sure how it would be for Australia but for North America, 375 H&H would be more versatile in my opinion. Having said that, if I were to get a 416 Rigby, I would rather get it in a Rigby Big Game rifle.
