This is a quick hunt report we put together using the Volquartsen 17WSM rifle. This rifle from Volquartsen is semiautomatic, and did a good job taking care of the hordes of ground squirrels that were damaging this farmer's crops.

Stay-tuned for our full review, range report, and more hunting, after we get back from our Arizona prairie dog hunt!

Finally, there are new aftermarket magazines now available for the Remington 591 rifle in 5mm Remington Rimfire Magnum (5mm Rimfire). We tested a few out with three different types of ammunition, and here are our results.

Our review, with hunt report, on the Winchester 1885 rifle in 17WSM (17 Winchester Super Magnum). We took the 1885 out prairie dog hunting in Arizona, using the 20 grain bullet offering from Winchester, and also took it to the range to shoot for groups.

We were able to get a first look at the new Hatsan Air Rifles while at the 2016 SHOT Show. Although they offered numerous new options, we focused on two rifles that we felt would be excellent for varmint hunting.

While at the 2016 SHOT Show, the folks over at Sharp Shooter 22 Long Rifle Reloader (AKA: 22LRReloader) announced new rimfire reloading kits for the .22 Magnum, .17 HMR, .17 Mach2 and the .17 WSM. These new releases are in addition to their popular .22 Long Rifle reloading kit that has been out a while (link to their website is in the video info section).

While at the 2016 SHOT Show, I was on the look-out for anything new that would be of interest to those of us who are predator callers. Although it was released last year, when I heard that Convergent Hunting Solutions were there showing their Bullet HP Predator Caller (Game Caller), I headed to their booth to get a first-hand look at this unique call. Byron South took some time to show us how the call, and app, works.

Our final thoughts on the Magpul X-22 rifle stock for the Ruger 10/22 rifle. We include a couple of shots on prairie dogs, and commentary from Eric Mayer with his thoughts on the stock, and how it works in hunting situations in the field.

This week Varminter Magazine heads out for some Tree Squirrel Hunting with Airguns in Northern Arizona. Tom (the "Maimer") uses his Benjamin Marauder, while Eric (the "Varminter") uses the Hatsan BT65-QE airgun. We are after the unique looking Albert's Tree Squirrel.

This is a quick look at the NEW Savage A22 Magnum semi-auto rifle and the CCI A22 Magnum ammunition. Using the same platform as their popular A17 semi-auto rifle, this is the latest rifle/ammunition release from Savage and CCI. We hope to have one of these rifles in our hands soon, where we can do a full range and hunt report.

Do I Need to Break In a New Rifle Barrel? is one of the most asked questions in the hunting/shooting community. While at the 2016 SHOT Show, we interviewed three of the top barrel makers in the world, and asked them to answer this question for us. No prompting, other than us asking the question.

What is a "Varminter"?:

Varminter - var·mint·er (värmnt r) - n.  -  A person who hunts varmints (vermin, typically small mammals); a varmint hunter.  Varminters hunt as a means of pest control, to protect property, livestock or crops, in lieu of other, less environmentally friendly options, such as poison.
