Sports Afield’s Annual Hunting Rifles Issue Hits Newsstands

A detailed look at factors that influence the accuracy potential of today’s big-game rifles highlights Sports Afield magazine’s May/June Hunting Rifles Issue, which hits newsstand shelves early next week. The new issue also features an article on the history and legacy of Holland & Holland, one of London’s all-time great names in rifle building; tips for understanding and mitigating the effects of recoil in heavy rifles; advice on how to set up a slug gun for big-game hunting in areas that require it; and a fascinating look at a true classic cartridge, the venerable .303 British.

“A hunter’s favorite rifle is more than just a practical tool; it’s a valued possession that becomes imbued with memories of days in the field,” said Sports Afield Editor in Chief Diana Rupp. “Sports Afield celebrates this in the pages of our annual Hunting Rifles Issue as part of our ongoing commitment to bringing you the best of hunting and big-game adventures.”

The May/June issue also features the story of a hunt for huge Alaskan brown bears; an overview of North American elk hunting; and the latest news from around the hunting world.

Sports Afield, founded in 1887, is the oldest outdoor magazine in North America and is America’s premier hunting adventure magazine, with a focus on exciting hunting stories, fine firearms, and the pursuit of big game around the world.
