Remington 700 Build

KRG Bolt Lift – Remington 700 Build

The KRG Bolt Lift is one of those simple, but very cool and useful modifications you can put on your rifle. Even modification might be too strong of a word, because it's simply screw on, screw off with no permanent change to your bolt handle.

XLR Element Chassis – the Remington 700

What a difference! The rifle already shot well (by my standards) but simply changing the chassis over shrunk it significantly.

OCW Testing with the .308 Build

Spent a day testing some new reloads - 155 Scenars and 2206H.

Timney Trigger Installation

As part of my ongoing 700SPS Rifle Accurising project, I knew from the outset that I was going to be replacing the trigger. Generally, the X-Mark Pro has had bad reviews - hell - they even recalled many of them - so, even without bothering to fire it, I replaced the trigger.

700SPS Centerfire Rifle Accurizing – Bore Inspection and Lug Lapping

With Nathan Foster's 'Bolt Action Rifle Accurizing & Maintenance' in hand, I started the first step in preparing my new Rem 700 build. First up was an initial inspection of the rifle bore and action and testing that we had good, even lug engagement.

A trip to the top of the Coromandel

To me, the true Coromandel is only reached once you have passed through, well, Coromandel - actually - even higher - with Colville (northernmost town of any note on the peninsula) representing a homecoming of sorts.

The Tikka Strata in 300WSM – one gun to rule them all?

The Tikka T3X Superlite is a familiar firearm to many New Zealand Hunters. Take the 'standard' T3X, flute the barrel and you have the Superlite. I recently had a Strada to set up for a client and took the opportunity (with the client's permission of course) to have a bit of a play.

PracMed Stop The Bleed Course

Hopefully, by now, I have gotten across the importance of first aid training to all of you. This is not just for shooters or hunters, or parents (I had to hook some food out of my 4 years olds choaking face last night) - but everyone - knowing what to do is 'basic dude stuff' as Patrick McNamara would say.

While the ultimate, of course, is having a remote bivy (small hut) to just yourself and your mates, for some of the more accessible and bigger huts, there is a very good chance you are going to be sharing a hut with other trampers and hunters. As ambassadors for tramping, hunting, and just being nice human beings, there are some basic principles we should all be applying A lot of this comes down to one simple principle - consideration for others. Consideration for others is the simplest and best guide for co-inhabiting a hut. It is not a bad starting point for humanity either. This article puts forward some simple considerations and pointers for the next time you find yourself in a shared hut.
