Bargain Deal Lyman Borecam Midsouth Shooters

Here’s the best deal we’ve found on an excellent product in high demand. The Lyman BoreCam is an electro-optical borescope with a digital display. You can record “stills” on a SD card. This is one of the hottest products on the market right now — and users really like the BoreCam (although some wish the digital view-screen was larger). Amazon.com now has the Lyman BoreCam for $197.19. Grab it while you can at that price. Other online vendors are charging a LOT more (e.g. MidwayUSA price is $259.99).

3. Bruno’s — 10% Off Gift Certificates (Use for Any Merchandise)

Bruno Shooters Gift Certficate Christmas Powder Sale

Now through December 25th (Christmas Day), you can purchase a Bruno Shooters Supply Gift Certficate at a ten percent discount. For example a $50.00 certificate costs $45.00 and a $100.00 certficate is just $90.00. NOTE: These certificates can be used to purchase ANY merchandise Bruno’s sells, including items on sale. In effect, this means the entire store is ten percent off, AND you get a discount on top of current sale prices. For example, powders are 10% off at Bruno’s through the end of the year. So you could purchase $111.00 worth of powder with a $100.00 gift certificate that only cost you $90.00 out of pocket — effectively saving you 20%. If you do the math, you’ll see this is a great opportunity if you combine the Gift Certificate with Sale offers. (Thanks to EdLongrange for the Tip.)

RCBS Chargemaster scale dispenser Natchez

Here’s a very good deal on the popular RCBS ChargeMaster combo scale/powder dispenser. This unit sells elsewhere for up to $389.00. You may want to act quickly as sale pricing changes frequently and many other vendors have recently raised their prices. Grafs.com sells this for $369.99 now while the current Amazon.com price is $296.99. You can save a lot through Natchez right now. NOTE: There is an RCBS Rebate Program in effect now — if you spend at least $300.00 on “RCBS tools and accessories” you can get $75.00 back.

6. MidwayUSA — Pro Series Shooting Mat, $29.99

$29.99 Pro Series Shooting Mat Midway USA Hot deal

Here’s a heck of a deal on a very good shooting mat. MidwayUSA has slashed the price on its Pro Series Shooting Mat (in Olive Drab). You can get this 73.5″ x 35.5″ padded mat for just $29.99. This Mat has some very nice features, such as a Bipod Pre-load Web, 0.35″ thick padding, and multiple pockets. It’s easy to transport, rolling up to about nine inches in diameter and fitted with a nice carry strap. Midway normally sells this Pro Series Mat for about $70.00, so the $29.99 price is a total steal. If you need a good basic shooting mat check out this deal.

7. Midsouth — 20-60x60mm Vortex Spotting Scope, $399.99

Vortex Spotting Scope Midsouth bargain

This is a very good spotting scope for the price. Yes it gives up some low-light performance to a spotter with an 80mm objective, but otherwise it is a good performer, and we can’t think of much that will touch this Vortex Diamondback spotting scope for anywhere near the $399.99 sale price. Choose from angled or straight version for the same $399.99 price, which includes the 20-60X zoom eyepiece.

8. Cabelas.com — Catch-All Gear Bag $9.99

This versatile bag holds lots of gear, and you can’t beat the price — just $9.99. At 16″x10″x6″ it’s big enough to hold rifle ammo, muffs, a Kestrel, and other accessories. It can also serve as a general utiling bag for car camping trips. Six exterior pockets, including zippered mesh pockets on top and side, provide multiple storage options. This Catch-All Gear Bag is available in Forest Green/Black and Dark Green/Camo. This a real bargain — the original price was $24.99.

Get $300.00 Gift Certificate with Purchase of AiR-15 Air Rifle

Creedmoor Sports offers an Air Rifle that mates an Olympic-quality Anschütz 8000-series barreled action (and Anschütz 5065 trigger) with AR15-style stock, chassis, and sights. This system, dubbed the AiR-15™ National Match Air Rifle, allows Service Rifle and High Power competitors to cross-train between centerfire matches and during the off-season. Although the rifle is supplied with a mock magazine (for correct off-hand ergonomics), the gun is a single-shot, using manual-fed 0.177 pellets.

Creedmoor Sports AR15 Air Rifle Anschutz

Creedmoor sells the complete AiR-15 (including Anschütz 8001 barreled action) for $1850.00. The receiver sleeve, front sight housing, carry handle, and handguard are all machined from solid aluminum. The remaining components, such as the butt stock, pistol grip, sling swivels, front sight post, and rear sight are genuine Bushmaster parts.

Creedmoor Sports AR15 Air Rifle Anschutz

Get $300.00 Gift Certificate with Purchase of AiR-15 Rifle
Right now if you buy an AiR-15, you can get a $300.00 Gift Certificate good on other Creedmoor Sports merchandise. That $300.00 certificate can be used to buy ammo, brass, dies, optics, pretty much anything in the Creedmoor Sports catalog. This is a super deal if you’ve been thinking about getting an Air Rifle. Please note — this is a LIMITED TIME offer. Also, the gift certificate cannot be used toward the purchase of the rifle. The $300.00 Gift Certificate will be attached to the AiR-15 NMAR packing slip.

Creedmoor Sports AR15 Air Rifle AnschutzBenefits of Air Rifle Cross-Training
Dennis DeMille, past Camp Perry Champion and Creedmoor Sports General Manager, believes Service Rifle and High Power shooters can greatly benefit from Air Rifle cross-training with the AiR-15 . Dennis tells us: “Look, you can shoot this in your basement in the dead of winter. The ergonomics are identical to the AR15. The sights, front and rear, are in exactly the same position. And by using Anschütz 8001 barreled actions and triggers, the system offers superb accuracy. The AR Air Rifle will deliver one-pellet-hole accuracy at 10 meters. I’ve visited the Anschütz factory. Every one of these barreled actions is tested and they all come with test targets verifying their accuracy.”

Dennis wanted to stress that practice with the AiR-15 can benefit even the best High Power shooters improve their scores. Dennis explained: “While this air rifle is capable of one-hole accuracy (at 10m), it is also very unforgiving of flaws in form or hold. Because the pellets are moving so slowly (about 575 ft/sec.), any mistake will move you out in the scoring ring. This air rifle will help you develop perfect trigger control, perfect follow-through, and perfect natural point of aim. Trust me — you can’t BS any part of your hold with an air rifle. I know if you train with an air rifle in the off season, your centerfire scores will improve.”

CMP NMARThe AiR-15 for CMP Air Rifle National Match Program
The Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP) has developed a National Match Air Rifle (NMAR) discipline consisting of High Power-style matches shot at reduced distances with air rifles. NMAR is a multi-faceted air rifle competition fired indoors or outdoors on 10-meter ranges. NMAR events simulate High Power rifle shooting and are fired on reduced-size High Power rifle targets. At the CMP’s NMAR tournaments, you can use sporter, precision or AR-type air rifles to shoot in 10-meter standing and three-position (prone, sitting and standing) courses of fire that simulate outdoor High Power rifle shooting.
