Sometimes cartridges are ahead of their time. That was certainly true with the .244 H&H, remarks Byron Pace. Historically, cartridge development has gone through phases, which inevitably return again decades later, whether that be smaller and faster or bigger and…
Do we do enough for conservation? Byron Pace takes a look at the successful conservation of sheep in North America’s Rocky Mountains, and wonders if we can do more of the same
Returning to an old favourite, Byron Pace details why the .300 Win Mag is still at the top of the pile despite the emergence of newer, faster contenders
It always gives me great pleasure to bring new people into hunting. It is the only way we will survive in the long term, and the more people we can encourage to pick up a rifle, or indeed a shotgun, the brighter the future will be for shooting and country sports as a whole.
Byron Pace takes a close look at bullet weight, sectional density, construction, velocity and how those features impact ballistic performance To finish where we left off last time, we need to do a case study of sectional density to reinforce…
Thinking back to 2011’s foxing forays in the vicinity of our pheasant shoot still makes me wince. Having lost a substantial number of birds to my toothy adversary that year, I became determined to get ahead of the game every year as soon as the stubbles were laid bare and I could cover my ground.
