New rifle reviews and rifle shooting tips for more accuracy in the field or at the range.
- This is a strange year for new rifle introductions. Many hunters rightly wonder, Why would I buy a new gun when I can’t get ammo for it? And yet, guns of all types continue to fly off the shelves. Even amid the chaos, there are some exciting new hunting rifle introductions this year. We have an American-made straight pull rifle and an iconic gun maker introducing its first bolt-action rifle. These 10 best new rifles deserve a look even during a very odd year.
THE RIFLE PAGE
If you want to outfit your new 6.5 Creedmoor precision rifle and make first-round hits at 800 yards, you've come to the right place. But if you’d prefer to improve the accuracy of your grandpa’s heirloom .30-30 lever-action so you can kill a deer with it this season, well—you’ve also come to the right place. All well-made rifles have a place in our heart and in our safe, so no matter if they’re designed for long-range accuracy, competitions, close-range shots, or backcountry hunting.
Outdoor Life covers new rifles with honest reviews and rigorous tests. Each year we publish our annual rifle test with new models from the biggest manufacturers to up-and-coming brands so that you know what’s trending, what we really think about new models, and what’s the best rifle to buy with your hard-earned cash. We’ll also cover rifle gear and accessories like bipods, suppressors, ammunition, slings, riflescopes, reloading equipment, and more.
