The new Burris Xtreme Tactical (XTR) III line of riflescopes features new reticle designs and enhanced field of view. Inspired by tactical and competition shooting, precision and reliability are at the core of the XTR III line.
Available in 3.3-18x 50mm and 5.5-28x 56mm versions, both are built with a 34-mm main tube for increased strength and extended adjustment range. The 3.3-18x 50mm model features elevation adjustments up to 120 MOA, and expanded side parallax adjustment on both models allows fine-tuning focus at shorter distances. Premium glass and optical improvements, include a larger eye box, a greater field of view, deeper depth of focus and improved light transmission. Four front focal plane reticle designs provide shooters with a variety of options. The new 2 MIL Special Competition Reticle (SCR) features a gridded “Christmas tree” design, allowing fast and accurate windage and elevation compensation. SCR Mil and SCR MOA reticles are also available.
“Dragon Scale” knurling and larger diameter knobs provide a tactile surface for making quick adjustments in all weather conditions, even while wearing gloves. A locking-diopter ring negates accidental changes in diopter focus during use. Burris’s Modular Adjustment Dial (M.A.D.) windage system is shipped with the scope, giving shooters the options of tactical exposed knobs, short capped or mixed.
Koola Buck Game Bags keep game meat safe from the field to your freezer. The bags are available in two sizes, large for elk or big-game quarters, and small for deer or antelope quarters. The bags are constructed from a strong, breathable cotton/poly-fabric blend and feature heavy duty 1.5-inch nylon cinch/carry straps sewn into the bag for easy handling of heavy weight and attaches securely to a backpack or pack frame. Wide side gussets and a seamless bottom allow for 20 percent more storage than the average pillowcase-style game bag. As added protection of the precious cargo, Koola Buck has designed these new game bags with a top-cover meat flap. This added flap completely covers the meat before pulling the bag’s locking drawstring, creating a physical barrier to bugs, dirt and other contaminants.
The large Blood Red Game Bag measures 42 inches long by 22 inches wide with a 6-inch gusset side for large quarters and a 14-inch top meat flap. The small Blood Red Game Bag is 30x18 inches with a 5-inch gusset and a 12-inch meat flap. Bags are vacuum sealed for sanitation and easy packing.
CCI’s Mini-Mag Segmented Hollow Point bullets are designed to split into three equal-sized parts on impact, creating three distinct wound channels that quickly take down small game and varmints. These bullets offer great accuracy, high velocities and flat trajectories plus reliable priming and specialized powders for clean, consistent ignition.
Durable, reliable and an essential for an African hunting adventure, this handmade boot was created by the Courteney Boot Company. Made in Zimbabwe from buffalo hide, these lightweight boots are a good choice for warmer climates, but the canvas body also allows for more efficient packing and is quick drying and breathable. Plus, the thick rubber sole and padded ankle will provide added comfort and support throughout the day. These safari boots are more than just comfortable footwear, they are designed to fit for purpose.
The popular Barnes Triple-Shock X-Bullet has returned to the Federal lineup. This proven, all-copper hollowpoint groups tightly at long range and delivers consistent, lethal expansion. The monolithic design retains more than 99 percent of its weight on impact to penetrate deeply, and its grooved shank minimizes barrel fouling and improves accuracy. Seventeen different loads are available, from .223 Remington to .300 Winchester Magnum.
