As I mention in this new review, I did not know Nosler made rifles until very recently. Since discovering that they do, I have been fortunate to review three of their rifles. Each of them has been very accurate, and easy to shoot. Such was the case with this latest Nosler model – the Mountain Carbon. I was given the choice to review a Mountain Carbon in either 6.5 Creedmoor or 26 Nosler. I chose the latter because I was interested in this proprietary cartridge. You can check out my full review here.
I have been really fortunate to get to see, and work with, wonderful firearms turned out by some of the best manufacturers in North America and Europe. The rifle featured in my review that appeared yesterday is no exception. H-S Precision is known for creating the highest-quality, best-performing parts for firearms. They also are lauded for putting together some of the finest custom-built, long-range rifles in the industry. I would encourage you to take a look at my review to see their newest addition to their line of hunting rifles.
This is NOT a complaint or brag, just an observation. Each of these articles has an associated video. Some of the videos are from interviews with manufacturers or hosts for hunting trips. Others record yours truly and/or Frances (my lovely assistant and wife) discussing a product and then using said product.
During this waiting period, I thought it might be good to share the videos, with a brief introduction. I’ll post a link to the full articles at TTAG as soon as they appear.
Today’s offering involves the third Daniel Defense firearm that I was sent to review – this time, their AR-platform DD5V5 rifle.
Frances and I were allowed to again spend time on the Government Training Institute‘s ‘level range’. There we tested the accuracy of the DD5V5, coupled with the Hornady ammunition sent to us by Joe Marler of Daniel Defense and Neal Emery of Hornady; during our workup we fired at targets ranging from 100 yards to >700 yards. Our accuracy at the longest distances averaged ~95%.
Thank you Chris Lux and Government Training Institute for allowing us to crash your Sunday to review firearms, hearing protection and shooting benches…and shoot the heck out of various targets…and cars!
On Sunday, March 1st, Frances and I head to the Government Training Institute‘s facilities in Barnwell, South Carolina. (No, we are NOT going there for the Presidential Primary!) Chris Lux and the other folks at GTI have given us permission to bring a ton-of-stuff out to review on their ranges.
“What ‘ton-of-stuff’ is being lugged to GTI for reviews?”
Our design is to ‘walk’ the rifles out to target distances of up to 700 yards. Cannot wait to shoot all of the firearms, and watch Frances do the same. I am also pumped to see how the firearms, Tuffpak, bench, fieldrest and ear protection perform.
Yes, you are correct. A magical weekend of shooting sh** is about to happen for the Arnolds!
Stay tuned for a ‘ton’ of review articles at TheTruthAboutGuns.com, complete with photographs and videos of each of the products being reviewed!
(Please excuse the plastic. There aren’t corpses, we’re just having some painting done in my trophy room/office.)
Well, the good folks at Daniel Defense have trusted me with some more of their cool products! At the top is their DDM4 PDW pistol in caliber 300 Blackout and at the bottom is their DD5 V4 rifle in 6.5 Creedmoor.
The pistol will be tearing up berms at my gunclub, while the rifle is set to head to the GTI Legion facilities where it will be fired at targets out to 800+ yards.
Can you say “Yeah Baby!!”
Stay tuned for the reviews of both firearms in TheTruthAboutGuns.com.
Dan Z Editor of TheTruthAboutGuns.com is pumping out Frances’ and my video interviews from the DSC Convention. The next one is already up and is with Josh Cluff of H-S Precision. Check it out if you love accurate, long-range shooting and hunting rifles! You can see the article here.
Our first article/video from the Dallas Safari Club Convention has appeared on TheTruthAboutGuns.com. The interview is with Jerome Lanoue of L’Atelier Verney-Carron, who shows us a tiny 28-gauge and a much larger .500 Nitro Express side-by-side.
I have been given the opportunity to attend a Government Training InstituteTactical Course on December 7th and 8th. Invited by my good friend, Ron Differ, I am very excited – and a bit nervous! – to try out shooting at targets positioned at distances up to 900 yards.
As part of my preparation, I needed to find a source for a shooting mat when shooting from a prone position and a rest for the butt of the rifle during the prone phase and the forend on other portions of the course. Finally, I needed a wrist board on which to record the necessary sight adjustments for the widely-varying distances. With this in mind, I approached the premier suppliers of all things related to Tactical shooting: Armageddon™ Gear.
One phone call and email later resulted in Tom Fuller‘s very generous offer to send this freelancer a set of Armageddon™ Gear’s Tactical-shooting products. The items sent included their Game Changer™ Support Bag, Ultralight Shooting Mat and Competition Data Armband.
