SIG Sauer CROSS Multi-Purpose Rifle Now Available

Sig Sauer cross precision rifle hunting

Two guns in one? If you want a PRS rifle that can hunt, or a hunting rifle that can shoot PRS matches, check out the SIG Sauer Cross, a 6.4-lb rig that combines PRS functionality with light overall weight. The new Cross bolt-action rifle is now shipping and will be available in retail stores soon. We must note, however, that serious PRS competitors use rifles that may weigh 20 lbs. with optics and accessories. In the PRS game, weight offers stability and reduced perceived recoil for faster follow-up shots. Still, we like the idea of a rifle that can shoot the occasional PRS/NRL match yet also work for hunting. This rifle recently won a 2020 Industry Choice Award for innovation.

Vortex 1-10x24mm Scope for Hunting and Tactical Comps

Vortex’s new 1-10x24mm scope has been creating a lot of buzz. We checked it out at the Vortex booth and think this scope is a good choice for competitors who sometimes need a very wide field of view, and for hunters who can quickly scan at 1-3X and then sight their prey at higher power. AT 1X power this illuminated scope works like a red dot for close ranges. And then 10X is plenty for game hunting.
