The BDX or Ballistic Data Xchange was launched in 2018, which allowed your SIG BDX Rangefinder to pair with the SIG BDX riflescopes and provide you exact holdovers for ranges out to 800-yards with amazing accuracy. In 2019, SIG has taken this a step further by adding a 10X42 rangefinding binocular with this same ability. Having this in a binocular allows you to eliminate a separate rangefinder. It also allows you to stay on your target at all times with a high-quality optic. It is fully multi-coated ED glass lenses with phase-coated prisms which provide a high-resolution image and great edge to edge clarity. It supports applied ballistics externally for pairing with your Kestral as well as Applied Ballistics Elite. The Hyperscan Technology provides four range updates per second, making it one of the fastest on the market. It will range up to 5,000 yards with results displayed to the nearest 1/10th of a yard. It is all wrapped up in a compact, lightweight aluminum housing and is powered by a lithium CR2 battery.
Winchester Wildcat 22
This rimfire provides an entirely new level of innovation. With over 100 years of rimfire building experience, Winchester has come to the table with a rifle that is a must-have for everyone. The Wildcat uses a striker-fired design (much like a centerfire bolt-action rifle) that provides faster lock time and a lighter trigger pull than traditional hammer-fired rimfire designs. It features a highly ergonomic ambidextrous molded polymer stock, with skeletonized buttstock, an upright ribbed pistol grip and rugged textured matte finish. The upper assembly has an integral picatinny top rail so you can easily add the optics of your choice. You can also use the fully adjustable ghost ring rear sight and ramped post front sight. It utilizes a rotary magazine and will also accept a wide range of aftermarket magazines compatible with the 10/22. It is easily disassembled and cleaning is a breeze with the well thought out design. It’s an ideal rifle to start your kids on or a go-to for the seasoned veteran.

CVA Paramount Long-Range Muzzleloader
Unlike any other CVA rifle, this bolt-action gun was developed and designed to handle “super magnum” propellant charges – meaning: in excess of a 150 grain by volume equivalent of black powder, thus providing the higher velocities necessary for harvesting animals effectively at 300-yards and beyond. The 2,200-feet per second plus velocities are worth nothing without the accuracy to put those shots where they belong, but this rifle has it all. The Paramount features a custom quality .45 caliber free floating Bergara barrel in Nitride treated 416 grade stainless steel. It has a 1:22 twist and when paired with PowerBelt’s new 280 grain ELR bullets, which were specially designed for the Paramount; this barrel can produce incredibly tight groups at ranges previously thought unreachable for a muzzleloader.
