5 Big Game Rifle Rounds… For Beginners (Videos)

 

.30-30 Win

 

 

” Though in our minds big game season seems so close that we can taste it, the truth is there is still ample time for would-be sportsmen to dust off their deer rifles and get into the hunt so to speak. This invitation is especially directed towards the younger or beginning hunters, who I’m sure are filled with hunting questions, the most obvious being,what caliber rifle do I get?

While hard, long and flat rounds like the .30-06 and .308 appear to dominate the North American hunting rifle scene and even the popular .223 is making a name for itself as a surprisingly capable deer round, these cartridges are not really the best choice for someone who has never stalked whitetails before, let alone shot a gun. So what do you get the fledgling deer hunter who is looking for a rifle to start off with? A caliber that will get the job done with ‘minute of deer’ accuracy but also won’t send the shooter running back to the cabin with a sore shoulder once the gun goes off.

Well, there are actually quite a few choices out there with such a proven history:”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Turnbull Manufacturing to Produce Limited Run of Colt Buntline Revolvers *

” Turnbull Manufacturing, renown maker of simple, rugged and gorgeous antique-style firearms, is bringing back the Colt Buntline, complete with their unmatched panache and style. To keep them as special as the original Buntline revolvers, they will only make limited production run of ten guns.

Based on the Colt Single Action Army, the Turnbull Buntline can be chambered in your choice of .45 Long Colt or .44 Magnum. Like the archetypal Colt revolvers, Turnbull’s Buntlines are made to order with barrel lengths up to 16 inches long.

While having one chambered in .45 Colt is absolutely more true to the iconic design, .44 Magnum really takes advantage of longer barrels, and is guaranteed to be a soft-shooter with the Buntline design.

These Turnbull Buntlines are not inexpensive, but they’re not unattainable at $1,650 each; considerably less than an original Buntline. In 2010, one example sold for $345,000. In 2012, a very rare 16-inch model auctioned for over $546,000.

The history of the Buntline is part steel and part myth. Ostensibly named for pulp fiction author Ned Buntline, it is believed that Colt made up to 30 Buntline revolvers in 1876.”
