The Savage Impulse has brought the world of lightning-fast straight-pull bolt-action rifles to the U.S. market. Utilizing a ball-bearing lock-up system, the Impulse allows for quick follow-up shots, making it ideal for hunting. The Predator version comes with a 10-round detachable AICS box magazine, adjustable AccuTrigger, and Savage’s AccuStock with adjustable LOP and comb-height. It also features a one-piece 20-MOA optics rail and a medium contour, carbon steel, threaded barrel. All of these features combine for a fast-shooting, accurate platform that is well-suited for almost any hunting situation.
The Browning X-Bolt is a hunting rifle that strives to set itself apart from others by offering premium features at a reasonable price point. Good looks, a short bolt lift, a good trigger, and excellent accuracy make the X-Bolt a great option for those looking to step up to something a bit nicer for their next hunt.
Bergara makes some of the best barrels in the business, and their complete rifles are just as good. The HMR (Hunting and Match Rifle) allows the user the flexibility to have an effective hunting and target rifle in a single package without sacrificing too much either way. Impressive accuracy, a quality stock/chassis combo, and a crisp trigger make this gun a clear winner.
“If you want a Daniel Defense bolt rifle then we recommend the Delta 5 Pro. It’s a great rifle and it looks good to boot. It produced sub-half MOA with 3-round groups and solidly under MOA with 5-shot groups. We consider that a win. While not the elitist PRS shooter, it’s a great out of the box solution.” — David Lane
