Rifle|July - August 2020
Ed Stevenson of Sheep River Hunting Camps has passed away. He was 89 years old.
Brian Pearce

Ed was raised in Wyoming with a ranching background and served as a big-game guide, trapper and horseman. He truly loved hunting and in 1960 packed up his guns and gear and headed to Alaska “just to hunt.” He soon became a licensed guide and outfitter. While he provided hunting opportunities for moose, sheep, mountain goats, black bear, etc., his specialty and first love was the great Alaskan brown bear. In spite of his extensive experience, he was attacked and bitten several times.

6MM ARC

After using a 6.5 Grendel to cull a goodly number of Texas feral hogs, I’ve developed a great deal of respect for the cartridge. This has mostly involved nighttime forays shooting with thermal imaging optics. The 2.26-inch confines inherent to AR-15 magazines, and the Grendel’s limited case capacity, make 123- to 130-grain bullets the practical upper limit for such activities. These projectiles chug along at around 2,350/2,450 feet per second (fps), but deliver well out of proportion to its diminutive size.

.240 WEATHERBY MAGNUM

The .240 Weatherby Magnum gets little respect. Knowledgeable varmint hunters will spend a lot of dough to build up a custom 6mm-284 or one of the variations of the 6mm-06 wildcat rounds to get the ballistic features already available in a .240 Weatherby Magnum factory rifle: flat trajectory, good performance in wind and the ability to anchor larger game more reliably if called upon to do so.

6MM CREEDMOOR

The 6mm Creedmoor was designed for long-range target shooting with long and skinny, heavy-for-caliber bullets that slip through the air with the greatest of ease. Wind affects these bullets little; they just fly right through it, almost unaffected.
