The Swedish Morakniv is as sharp as a razor. The clip-point blade is anodized to prevent rusting and the handle is made of injection-molded polypropylene and provides a positive grip. It comes with a sturdy sheath and an incredible price of only $80. We dare you to find a better all-around knife for the money.
Given the precision rifles and buckets of ammo involved, long-range rifle shooting is a spendy hobby, as a rule. But this 9.5-pound tactical bolt makes it more affordable than ever, by a long shot. (Get it?)
Built on the Savage Model 110 action, the new 10T incorporates a 24-inch heavy barrel with 5R rifling for optimal accuracy and a BA-style bolt-handle fore quick, easy cycling. It comes with a detachable box magazine and one-piece EGW scope base. And you get all of that for the ridiculously low price of $599 (cabelas.com). What’s more, it’s chambered in .308 Winchester, a classic long-range round that’s both relatively available and cheap. In other words, if you’re looking to get into long-range shooting but aren’t ready to drop the big bucks, this may well be your rifle.
This tripod was designed for military spotters who needed to set up in the sitting or prone position. But, the tripod is equally fitting for open country hunters who want to glass from a low, hidden position. And as far as tripods go, it's super lightweight and durable. The downside is, all that functionality is going to cost you. The tripod retails for about $600.
As the long-range frenzy continues, we should not forget that Weatherby has been specializing in rifles for extreme distances ever since the company was founded, and I mean hunting rifles, not tactical guns. Newest in their lineup is the Terramark RC, a Mark V with a special earth-tone camo stock and dirt-colored (sort of) metal finish on the receiver and fluted barrel.
The new Winchester Rooster XR uses the same technology as the Long Beard load announced late last year. Here's how it works: the resin fills in the gaps between the pellets. When the shell ignites, the resin fractures. This process creates a tighter shooting shotshell and more pellets on target, according to Winchester.
Benchmade surveyed backcountry hunters to come up with the designs for their new HUNT Series. The series includes 8 different knives (both fixed blades and folders) with blades forged in CPM S30V steel. This is a powdered steel known for edge retention, an attribute critical for hunters trekking off the grid. The folders in this line utilize the classic Benchmade axis lock system, which slides a safety bolt into place.

Everything about Barrett's new semiautomatic .50 caliber rifle is big. The rifle is fitted with the QDL suppressor (Quick Detach Large suppressor) and a stocky bipod. The price tag is big too. The gun retails $18,000.
