Editor’s Take:

We now live in the age of high-performance cartridges. It seems each and every year a new uber-flat cartridge sporting heavy-for-caliber, high coefficient bullets enters the fray. And the proof is in the performance, backed up by shooter demands. We recently highlighted two new builds: a Horizon Vandal X in .22 Creedmoor and a Smith & Wesson Volunteer XV Pro DMR in 6mm ARC.

While the S&W provides a direct example of 6mm ARC growth, they both emulate a growing trend in the industry. New cartridges delivering incredible long-range performance continue driving the rifle market, as companies of all sizes bring new variants into their stables, adding to value lines on up to high-end offerings like this ADM rifle.

We say it quite often around here: we live in the age of the rifleman. Rifle builds, optics and ammo offerings have never been better. Enjoy the spoils and find a new build that meets your needs!
