LMT Defense Rifles and why I shoot them

Posted by Michael Warn on

Over the past years many companies have popped up and started making AR style rifles but none has met the standards and quality of the LMT Defense line up of rifles. These rifles provide match grade accuracy the same as any bolt action long range rifle but in small semi-auto rifle form. Their striving to put the best rifle out there has allowed me to personally set records with their rifles by shooting off the tripod with a hog saddle to an IPSC target at 2260 yards for multiple hits. The same rifle allowed me to get a 1st, 2nd,...

Eberlestock Little Big Top long term review

Posted by Michael Warn on

After more than a year of testing I am super happy with the Eberlestock Little Big Top pack. I used this pack at least four times a week for long range shooting, range time, and as an instructor. The pack is super comfortable even when loaded with my LMT Defense Rifle and long range hunting gear. My LMT rifles are all extremely accurate with one of them holding a world record for 2260 yards on target from the Hog Saddle Tripod. I equip each of my rifles with the Terminator brakes of which the Terminator TT muzzle brake is my...

Ruger Precision Rifle 338 Lapua

Ruger Precision Rifle 338 Lapua

Ruger's lineup of Precision Rifles is growing at an amazing rate with unprecedented success and here's why. From the perspective of an instructor of nearly ten years I have watched students fight to get comfortable on everything from hunting rifles to custom built long range rigs. It's rare that I see a properly set up rifle at the start of a course. There is usually some adjustments to be made which involve taking the rifle apart, or in the worst case scenario the student must proceed with an ill fitting rifle. But not so with the RPR rifles. I have yet to see a student not have the rifle be able to be easily set up to them and their particular needs. Students from 5' to 6'5" tall have used our rental rifles and the RPR is their favorite because it's comfortable, deadly accurate, and lacks nothing.

From a personal point of view I also enjoy owning several Ruger Precision Rifles in 6.5 Creedmoor, .338 Lapua, and even a .22LR version which my family and students love. They're all super accurate with proper ammo. I have had several particularly good results over the years with one being a 5" 3 three shot group at 1605 yards with the RPR and a second round hit on an IPSC sized target at 2834 yards.

About the only things you need to do to make these rifles shoot dead nuts accurate is take the bolts out, put blue loctite on the threads, and retorque to proper specs. (This is the same for any rifle) And if you really want to make these rifles shoot like a custom built gun put a Terminator TT on your 6.5 Creedmoor, 6.5 PRC, 300 PRC, or a Terminator TF on your 338 and 300 Win mag versions. The results in recoil reduction are amazing. Don't believe the hype about Terminator brakes? That's ok. Go to Terminator Products on YouTube and see for yourself.
