    Weatherby Mark V Rifle for Women

    The rugged Mark V Subalpine joined two existing models in the women’s series: the Mark V Camilla Deluxe and the Vanguard Camilla. All share the same specialized stock geometry developed by consulting female shooters. The stock features a slim forearm and a 13-inch length of pull. The narrow pistol grip has a short grip-to-trigger reach for smaller hands. A high comb provides an optimal cheek weld and eye/scope alignment for a natural balance and fast shouldering. A lightweight carbon fiber stock and weather-resistant CERAKOTE metal coating were combined to create a nimble firearm that stands up to harsh hunting conditions.

    This 5.75-pound rifle features a 6-lug Mark V action, an adjustable match-grade LXX Trigger and a hand-lapped, stainless steel, fluted barrel with a recessed target crown in a “Flat Dark Earth” CERAKOTE finish. Five calibers are available including .240 Weatherby Magnum, .270 Winchester, 6.5 Creedmoor, .308 Winchester and .30-06.      weatherby.com

    Hodgdon Triple Seven FireStar Powder

    Hodgdon is now offering Triple Seven FireStar pellet powder for muzzleloader hunters and shooters. This new pellet is designed for modern, .50-caliber inline muzzleloaders with 209 primer ignition. Three pellets are a 100-grain equivalent load. The star-shaped, geometric design features longitudinal grooves that provide more surface area for ignition. The outcome is a pellet that is cleaner burning and results in the suppression of “crud ring” development, as well as delivering a velocity increase of up to 50 fps over similar 100-grain equivalent loads. Pellets are available in a 60-count clamshell.          hodgdon.com
