In addition to its excellent fit, function and accuracy, the Momentum Elite Varmint sports a rugged, synthetic stock engineered specifically for varmint hunting and is outfitted with a removable cheek rest, checkered-polymer grip and versatile camo.
A beltless non-rebated .30-caliber magnum rifle cartridge designed for extreme performance at long range, the .300 PRC is the product of years of tinkering by Hornady. It will handle almost any game in North America and is fully capable of doing double duty as a long-range target choice.
Both cartridges are based on the H&H belted case, generate impressive velocities and have a wide range of bullet weights. Which is the better choice for the hunter? Contributor Philip Massaro takes a closer look at the pros and cons of each.
The .350 Rigby Magnum is vastly overlooked even among rifle cranks but was at one time as popular as the .375 H&H Magnum. Released in 1908, it is an entirely original design, and was the first to feature the sharp 45-degree shoulder which is the hallmark of the Rigby designs.
The .17 Hornet, son of the classic .22 Hornet, is a well-balanced design. Sharing the rimmed design of the parent case, it feeds nicely in a bolt-action repeating rifle, provides pinpoint accuracy and minimal recoil, and checks all the boxes for varmint hunting.
Between the .300 H&H Mag. and .300 Win. Mag., which cartridge is the better design and makes more sense for the hunter? Contributor Philip Massaro examines the pros and cons of each.
Just about every case shape imaginable has been modified to hold both 7mm and .30-caliber bullets, but it was gunwriter Layne Simpson who saw a gap in the lineup: there was no 7mm cartridge based on a full-length .375 H&H case. In 1979, Simpson took the excellent 8mm Remington Magnum and necked it down to hold 7mm bullets, giving his wildcat the name “Shooting Times Westerner.”
