Bargain Finder 229: AccurateShooter’s Deals of the Week

Accurateshooter Bargain Finder Deals of Week

At the request of our readers, we provide select “Deals of the Week”. Every Sunday afternoon or Monday morning we offer our Best Bargain selections. Here are some of the best deals on firearms, hardware, reloading components, optics, and shooting accessories. Be aware that sale prices are subject to change, and once clearance inventory is sold, it’s gone for good. You snooze you lose.

1. Cabela’s — Predator Sale — Save on Rifles, Optics, Gear

Frankford Arsenal Powder Measure

Cabela’s is running a big sale with significant savings on rifles, optics, hunting accessories, and outdoor gear. You can save up to $100 on optics, and up to $80 on firearms. There are some very good deals with this Predator Hunting Sale which lasts through 11:59 pm on Wednesday February 12, 2020. For example, the Vortex Ranger 1300 Rangefinder is just $299.99.

2. Amazon — Frankford Arsenal Powder Measure, $37.23

Frankford Arsenal Powder Measure

This new Frankford Arsenal Powder Measure — just $37.23 on Amazon — is a very good value. The unit measures from 0.8 grains up to 120 grains. A “Quick-Disconnect” screw allows you to take the powder measure off the mounting assembly quickly to pour powder back into the jug easily. We really like that feature. This measure also has a micrometer-style adjustment knob with white-on-black markings. The unit ships with two mounting stands allowing either elevated position or bench-edge mount.

3. Amazon — Barska Double-Sided Hard Rifle Case 50″, $159.08

barska double hardsided rifle case

We like cases capable of carrying two rifles. But it’s very difficult to find a soft case with the strength to carry two long-barreled scoped rifles. We like this new Barska Double Hard-Sided Case because each rifle is carried in a separate lockable compartment, with foam padding AND a hard protective panel on BOTH sides of the rifle. The interior length is 50″ — that should fit rifles with barrels up to about 28″. The exterior of the Barska Case is made of rigid ABS with an aluminum frame.

4. Brownells — Sellier&Bellot 6.5 Creedmoor Ammo $13.99/20rds

Sellier & Bellot 6.5mm Creedmoor ammo tactical PRS

We know many PRS and tactical shooters don’t have time to load large quantities of 6.5 Creedmoor ammo for practice sessions (or even a match). Right now you can purchase 20 rounds of reliable 6.5 Creedmoor loaded ammo for just $13.99 at Brownells. That’s just $0.70 per round. These days you can pay $1.00 or more just for 6.5 Creedmoor brass. This Sellier & Bellot 6.5mm Creedmoor ammo drives 140gr FMJ bullets at 2500+ FPS muzzle velocity.

5. Precision Reloading — ADG Brass for Magnum Cases Special

Atlas Development Group (ADG) brass is quality American-made cartridge brass, proven to be strong and consistent. It is a very good choice if you are looking for less-common large or magnum cartridges. Precision Reloading has many ADG brass types at attractive prices. Cartridge types available include: 6.5 PRC, .308 Win, .300 Norma Magnum, .338 Rem Ultra Magnum, .338 Edge, and .338 Lapua Magnum.

6. Amazon — Caldwell E-Max Pro Electronic Muffs

Caldwell electronic e-max earmuffs nrr 23 hearing protection muffs

The new Caldwell NRR23 E-Max Pro Electronic Muffs are a good value at $44.29 on Amazon. Other compact electronic muffs, such as the NRR22 Howard Leight Impacts, can cost $60.00 or more. Caldwell’s new 23dB NRR E-Max Muffs deliver excellent performance with easy-to-use Push Button Volume Controls, illuminated On/Off Indicator, and Auto-Shutoff. Color options: Neon Blue, Neon Green, or Hot Coral (orange).

NOTE: Caldwell also offers the Bluetooth-enabled NRR24 E-Max Pro BT. This $99.99 unit allows you to hear phone calls, listen to music, or monitor audio from Bluetooth Apps.

7. CDNN Sports — Ruger American Pro 9mm, $299.89

Ruger 9mm pistol american Pro handgun sale $299

We like the 9mm Ruger American Pro pistol. It is extremely reliable and is very accurate. The American Pro also boasts great ergonomics with interchangeable backstraps to suit different hand sizes. We prefer this full-size 9mm to a Glock and the Ruger American Pro is 50% less expensive than a SIG or HK. Right now you can get the 9mm Ruger American Pro at CDNN for $299.89, complete with two 17-rd metal magazines.

8. Midsouth Shooters — Hornady A-Tip Sample Packs, $9.99

Hornady bullet A-tip aluminum match bullet projectile

Many of our readers have been curious about Hornady’s A-Tip bullets, but don’t want to spend $75-$85 to try out a full box. In addition, many of the more popular calibers and bullet weights are sold out. Now, thanks to Midsouth Shooters, you can try an A-Tip Sample Pack to see if A-Tips work in your barrel. Choose from four options: 110gr 6mm; 135gr 6.5mm; 153gr 6.5mm; and 250gr .308 caliber. All Sample Packs contain 10 bullets, and cost $9.99 at Midsouth.

9. Amazon — 12″ x 12″ Splatter Grid Targets, 10 for $9.99

Sight-in 12

This 12″x12″ Splatterburst Target combines splatter shot marking with a grid background, with five aiming points. The bright neon shot circles make it easy to see your shots. And the handy grid lets you quickly estimate your group size. Get a 10-pack for $9.99, or a 25-pack for $17.99 (better deal). This particular target has earned rave reviews — 87% of verified buyers gave this a FIVE-Star rating. One example: “Excellent quality and durability. The adhesive is really strong and the splatter contrast is [great].”
