7 Great Long Range Hunting Guns

In Western states like Utah and Wyoming, gun and hunting culture is strong. But how can you tell the difference between a so-so gun and a quality long-range firearm? Besides durability and capability for large calibers, your gun should be durable and light enough to carry into the thick wilderness. It also should be safe, passing all the legal requirements with flying colors. Having a firearm that is affordable is also a great bonus. If you’re looking, try one of these.

A good stalking rifle, the 1-S's short falling block action and flat receiver make it comfortable to carry by hand or slung over the shoulder, though it's a little heavy for long hikes. As a single-cartridge rifle, it can be carried, unloaded and made ready for action quickly. While it is marginally heavier than many other rifles on this list, it handles quickly and the weight helps maintain balance when shooting. Its suggested retail price of $1,250 makes it an affordable investment.
