Rimfire Revolution: .17 Win. Super Mag. Ammo

Shooters are drawn to rimfire cartridges primarily due to the per-shot costs being significantly less than those of comparable center-rifle rifle cartridges. However, their downfall is lackluster terminal ballistics—that is, until now. Winchester’s new economical .17 Winchester Super Magnum (WSM) cartridge defies convention, and in doing so handily becomes the highest-performance rimfire extant.

Wyoming Antelope Hunt, Day 3

As mentioned previously, and particularly where trophy-class animals are required, antelope hunts are generally of short duration. But, with a full day to spare, Henderson, myself and a couple other hunters decided to visit local attractions, including gun shops. On the way into Gillette to drop of the antelope meat, we stopped by T&T Guns & Ammo and perused the inventory. The business, which has been family-owned for 59 years, has an excellent assortment of new and used firearms, ammunition and accessories. It’s nice to see these smaller businesses succeed.

British Columbia Black Bear Hunt, Day 5

This morning prior to breakfast I joined Shannon as she skinned the bear, as I was curious about the bullets’ terminal performance, and wanted to see it firsthand. I must commend her work, as not only was she quick (obviously from extensive experience), but only dabs of sweet-smelling hand lotion beneath her nostrils made the task possible. Remember the rotting moose meat? Well, the bear reeked of it. It was bad!
