Under the Christmas Tree – A Leupold Rifle Scope

Tell your loved ones now, that you want a better rifle scope for next season. Tell her or him you want an American Made and Engineered Leupold scope. Why? They are an investment for life of the finest, most rugged and dependable optics on the planet with a Lifetime Warranty.

If you are not a long range hunter or shooter you can perhaps get away with less expensive second class scopes in the 150.00 dollar range but remember that at some point “what you have is gonna be what you hunt big game with” spending thousands of dollars at some future point. Here is the question you should ask yourself: Do I want to risk a $7000.00 hunt on a $150.00 scope (begins with N) with average light gathering and rubber gasket nitrogen filled whatever that can lose nitrogen and produce internal moisture? Well, on a local deer hunt, I discovered that! Glad I was not on a western hunt…

I used my Leupold scopes in Africa on 2 rifles and was I so glad I did.

Optical Clarity, ability to dial your scope accurately are essential for longer ranges. But most importantly your scope will not fog in cold weather and handle the recoil. I had a lesser expensive scope that was great in summer, but out on a cold day, it fogged up and I could not see the deer. Was I upset! I guess you could say that! Lesson learned.

I am a Leupold Scope fan and advocate at least a VX-III Series Scope a world class contender in optics. You get what you pay for here Diamond Coat Glass, Argon Crypton gas.

VX-3i 3.5-10 x40mm for an MSRP of $519.00. https://www.leupold.com/scopes/compact-scopes/vx-3i-3-5-10x40mm

If you can invest more the VX-6 is my champion in 3 -18 x 44mm. From 3 to 18 magnification in just a twist of the dial. And the VX-6 7-42 56mm far below.

Below according to Leupold’s website;

“Diamond Coat 2™ – Exterior lens surfaces are treated with DiamondCoat 2™, an ion-assist lens coating, for higher light transmission and the greatest level of abrasion resistance we’ve ever offered. DiamondCoat 2™ has the additional advantage of assisting in light transmission, for greater brightness, clarity and contrast, and will prove its worth in the wildest places on earth.

Twilight Max Light Management System

“Light management means delivering usable light to your eye and forming a crisp, high contrasting image. Lens coatings are applied that maximize light transmission in blue and red, and balancing colors to develop the highest possible contrast. Glare is controlled with special mechanical structures. This means you can see antler tines in dark shadows long after the competition has gone home.”

Twin Bias Spring Erector System

“The twin bias spring exerts up to 30 percent more holding force on the erector, virtually eliminating erector system backlash and stress on the vital internal workings of the scope, for longer life.”

For heavy recoiling rifles like my 338 Winchester magnum and my 375 Ruger the twin bias erector system was just the ticket to strengthen the erector system and greatly improve field reliability giving me the utmost confidence.

For Long Range Competition or Hunting you can step up to the VX-6 all the way up to the 7 – 42 x 56mm. Its as long as my keyboard below and sports a 34mm tube.

One twist and go from 7x to 42x , Holy Mackerel! Put that on your bull at 600 yards! We shoot this in Long Range Competition and are mightily impressed and will shoot it in all our competitive shoots. It is for someone who needs the best and most power, most light gathering possible.

Invest in American Made Leupold Scopes, Rangefinders, Spotting scopes too!

 

 

 

New Hampshire Rifleman Magazine New High’s

Shooting and Hunting Friends,

Great News! New Hampshire Rifleman Magazine is surging in readership has grown World Wide to over 50,000 readers each year and is on track to exceed 90,000 readers with its current surge of 250 readers a day. I wish to thank all of my readers for following us.

One of my great finds of this past few years is the 6.5 Creedmoor Cartridge for both target and big game hunting and for the exceptional rifle quality of Ruger, Savage, Thompson Center, and Smith & Wesson shown here in testing.

The best rifle hunting bullets are made by Nosler. Such as the partition, AccuBond® and AccuBond Long Range and the gilding copper E-Tip®. We like Hornady too, especially their Precision Hunter™ Cartridges with the ELD-X bullets with Heat Shield™ tip.

Further that the best US made optics are Leupold Rifle Scopes and optical products. I swear by the Leupold name and highly recommend them as a life long investment for both hunting and target.  The VX-6 3-18 is by far the finest scope I have ever owned and has the best clarity, adjustability, durability and lifetime guarantee out there.

As we approach the years end we look forward to larger things to come for New Hampshire Rifleman Magazine.

If you wish to advertise with us, please send email to erhale@comcast.net we will be glad to discuss options with you.

Cheers! Good Hunting!

Skinner Bog Maine Russian Boar Hunt:TC Pro Hunter with Nosler E-Tips and a Leupold Scope by Ed Hale

It was Monday February 6th, 2017 at near noon when I left for my Maine Russian Boar hunt. It took me a bit over 3 hours to get to Dixmont, Maine, were Skinner Bog Hunt Park is located. I promised my friends at Nosler that I would “take” a Russian boar with Nosler E-Tips and gave me a chance to shoot the TC Pro Hunter Single shot rifle in 30-06 Springfield with my favorite scope, a Leupold VX-6 3-18 x 44mm

Skinner Bog Hunt Park

http://www.skinnerbogdeerfarm.com/russian-boar-hunts/

Skinner Bog Hunt Park is owned and operated by Jeremy Bilodeau who has a passion for hunting Whitetail deer as well as his hunt park operation which has game animals such as the Russian Boar, mixed wild boar breeds, Red deer, Sika deer, Fallow deer and Elk. Give Jeremy a call at the website if you want more info or to book your own hunt.

When I arrived, I was greeted by Jeremy at the main camp and taken to my bunk area where I spread out my gear and relaxed before dinner.

Here is a shot of the living area wall back at camp with all of the family whitetails taken.

All deer on the walls were taken by Jeremy and his 2 sons. Food and drink was provided for by the lodge and was treated to a first night steak dinner and some grilled wild pig along with Asparagus and Scalloped Potato. The wild pig was a cross breed from the park and delicious.

I was to hunt the larger 400 acre park in the morning for a long standing wild group of very wary Russian boar. We got out to the park on his large side by side 4 wheeler. Temperatures were hovering in the 12 to 16 degree range so we bundled up. I was shooting the TC Pro Hunter Single Shot in 30-06 Springfield with Nosler E- Tips, the E is for Expanding. An all gilding copper bullet that Expands on contact and stays together.

I thought I was well prepared until we started “still hunting” on a fluffy 3 inches of new snow on frozen compressed ice snowpack underneath, except I was not very still. My boots were not able to grip the snowpack and it was like I was on an undulating skating rink where I slipped and fell many times. Just a week earlier Jeremy and his client put up a nice Russian boar in the same area we were hunting, hoping to cut fresh tracks. We covered many acres of what should have been prime bedding area and came up with not one new track. But there are at least 25 animals in the half square mile park. Of course we could see where the animals had been just days before, but you can’t eat tracks as my dad used to say.  Jeremy suggested we take a break, concerned for my slipping and sliding and I said directly; “I’m fine…don’t need a break.” I was determined to not let the slipping get the best of me and continued our hunt in hopes seeing new sign. My pride was perhaps bruised more than I was.  We stopped off at the deep woods guest cabin that sleeps 6,  to see inside it and make sure the scope was still on.

Sure enough it got banged enough to shoot 9 inches to the right, at 100 yards. A few adjustments and we were back on target.

Ok, nuf’-o-that,  we decided to have some lunch and shift gears to a different spot in the park. Jeremy rustled up a pair of Trex™ Ice traction slip-on’s (below), and that did the trick.

Trex™ Ice Traction Device (05831)

Renewed and refreshed Jeremy led me to a different area. It wasn’t long as we pushed through the spruce, we could see legs of animals ahead of us. Jeremy said “Red deer” as they melted into the backdrop. I heard them but did not see them.  As we moved along we heard a grunt, then another; a parade of Wild boar, both large and small were moving away at about 50 yards. Jeremy, earlier stated that several Russian  boar are here as well as mixed breeds. I wanted a Russian boar to write about and serve to my friends and family for dinner!

Jeremy and I followed from a safe distance and the boar began to root around oblivious to us. We got into position for a shot in the first available opening but all we could see was the back end of the boar. Then the big Russian swapped ends and headed straight at us. We froze momentarily in hopes it would not see us, then like a dart the boar went left quartering away at 35 yards but the smaller boar were milling around, and the equally large boar was nearby making a shot impossible.

Then, two more small inquisitive boar came up behind us so we gave them plenty of room, knowing we would end up in a better shooting position anyhow.

The smaller boar were bold as all get-out, not sure what they would do, so we move away.

Finally in the thick spruce the Russian boar was alone and we were in  position just 15 yards away and was broadside. Jeremy whispered; “Clear!” I was already aiming and ready. Boom! I could see the tissue tight behind the boars shoulder give a puff and ran away to the left and down an opening where, in just 30 yards, it collapsed. Perfect Shot Ed!, said Jeremy! We high fived a few times as she collapsed just 30 yards down a small hill. It was a mad house of all the boar grunting that stood around it and in a protection circle and the other big Russian was popping his teeth as a warning.

We stayed at a distance to ensure the boar was indeed dead for a few minutes and then went into recovery mode back at camp with a 4 wheel vehicle and a plastic toboggan. We got the big Russian all loaded up and away from the other boar and found a spot for a photo shoot with the boar, my TC Pro Hunter Rifle, Leupold VX-6 Scope and the Nosler 30-06 with 168g Copper E-Tips that brought this Russian boar down in a hurry.

Now the process of skinning and quartering is underway below. Look at all that fat!

Here is where the Nosler E-Tip, (E for expanding) all copper bullet did on entrance. The bullet encountered the thick skin on the shoulder called the “shield” and the E-Tip opened (expanded) on the shield as it punched through the ribs with a quarter size hole on entry. The bullet shredded the lungs and took a chunk from the heart and exited with a golf ball size hole. And not a trace of the copper to be found!!! Wow! Now that is a bullet! I will be feeding some of this to my little grandkids and feel confident that there are no lead fragments as it is all copper and resists fragmentation.

Jeremy suggested we leave the halves to cool in the 16 degree weather.

I used a power reciprocating saw with a new blade they call the Ax. Did a fine job cutting bone! Look at that fat marbling will ya!

It is Thursday, I killed the boar on Tuesday afternoon.  I cut up half of the boar during the Northeaster Blizzard we were having here in New Hampshire. In the blizzard I heated up the grill and barbecued these puppies in Balsamic and Fig Vinegar, salt and pepper till crispy and about 140 or so internal temp. Look at those snow flakes!

So after all those  driven miles, all the falls in the snow and slick ice woods at Skinner Bog in Maine, here is the dinner I created;

Grilled Balsamic Russian boar chops with Broccolini , Crisp Apple and Bread Stuffing and Newfoundland Partridge Berry /Blueberry Jam on the side. Wow! And a Stella Beer to wash it down. Magnificent!!! The fat was blackened and crispy, meat tender and very flavorful and non gamey. Restaurant quality!

Thanks so much Jeremy, It was a blast! I will be back!!!

A big hat tip to my friends at Nosler and the E-Tip, Thompson Center for such a fine rifle and Leupold for its famous VX-6 3-18x44mm scope.

Good Hunting!

TC Pro Hunter- Excellent Trigger Job by 1GUNSHOP.COM by Ed Hale

Formerly bellmtcs.com now 1gunshop.com  who deals now in a wide array of technical gunsmithing, firearms, archery and so much more outdoor gear. A veritable Trading Post On-Line.  The lowest prices anywhere says Kurt Bellm the owner.  Now to the Trigger Job.

As I said in an earlier article, I was having difficulty installing the new lighter Trigger Spring so I sent the core frame (without barrel and stock) to Kurt Bellm in Colorado, owner of 1GUNSHOP.com. Note: The frame is serialized and must be sent via FFL.

Not only did he set the new Trigger spring but added a better custom firing pin and drilled the trigger guard, installing a trigger over-travel screw.  I asked that set the trigger spring at between 3 lb  and 3.5 lbs. My tests show it now at a perfect 3lbs. 5 oz.  I went to the range today to see how the trigger, firing pin and trigger over-travel screw worked and was elated at the crisp trigger, The dimple of the firing pin on the primer was perfect. Oh and for a few dollars more he recommended the 1x Over size Hinge Pin which is 0.0005 more than the current stock pin and will increase accuracy.

Honestly, If I could have installed the new spring, there was no assurance to hit my set goal either, it would have been approximate. It may have even been in the 2. 5 lb. category for all I know and too sensitive for hunting. So sending it back was a more a blessing in disguise. I called him on the phone more than a few times and he was very helpful.

Further that he works on so many T/C’s that he has not only more knowledge on T/C frames than anyone outside of the company but customizes indestructible firing pins, and creates a trigger over travel stop screw besides having the best of all the T/C springs and created the Over Size Hinge Pin to tighten the often looser hinge action. Loose side to side movement is eliminated with the new pin and accordingly improves accuracy from shot to shot.

Thanks so much Kurt!  If you need some TLC on your T/C see 1GUNSHOP for the solution and check out the Website and all that they offer.
