Weighing in at 5.5 pounds, the ultralight Sauer 101 Highland XTC is a well-balanced, all-around rifle, featuring a hand-laid carbon fiber stock, fluted and factory threaded barrel, fluted bolt and all the standard S101 features that guarantee reliability and accuracy.
Carbon-wrapped barrels and stocks have become increasingly common in a number of custom and semi-custom rifles from boutique manufacturers. The AllTerra Carbon, however, is the only rifle we’re aware of with all the accuracy-enhancing features it includes. If you appreciate the ultimate in field accuracy wrapped in a practical carrying package, this rifle is worth a close look. And you have 90 days to test-drive it, risk-free.
It’s been an argument that has gone on for well over a half-century: Is the controlled-round-feed or the push-feed design better for the hunter?
For any hunting application where the distance is expected to be extreme, the Ruger Hawkeye Long-Range Hunter is a solid contender. It will deliver all the precision you need, it’s portable enough to carry on long walks, it's handy enough for close-in snap shots and it's short enough to remain manageable in compact shooting blinds.
