Man, it’s hard to believe that the year is already half over! We are into the 2nd half of 2023 already. I do hope that the year has gone well and blessed for you. It hasn’t slowed down at BRDGW. But, it has heated up here in Iowa. With the heat and humidity, days on the range have been brutal at times. The ticks have not showed any mercy while out testing guns, cartridges, and handloads on the coyotes. We are still hanging and stacking fur. I hope that you are too!
Predator Hunting Machines
Custom predator hunting rifles continue to be built and finding their way to their new owners. In the last two months I’ve received numerous pics of killed coyotes sent in by owners of new BRD rifles. It’s great to see them being put to use so quickly! As rifles go out, orders continue to come in. If you’d like to get your coyote killing machine started for this season, that window of opportunity is quickly closing. You can email or call 515-442-0294 to get your BRD rifle underway.
Wyoming Trip- 41 Yotes in 3.5 Days
The 22 BRD wildcat made its way out to Wyoming last month. Nick Turley went on a 3.5 day hunt out there with the wildcat and his 243 Win customized BRDGW Invictus Elite. He killed 41 coyotes in that time. Using the BRD wildcat, Nick hunted mainly during the day doing some decoy dog’n, but he did put a thermal on it for a little bit of night hunting, too. The wildcat accounted for 20 of his kills, with his longest kill at 427 yards with the 22 BRD. Nick had a thermal on his 243 and killed the other 21 pasture poodles with it. Check out some of the pics below, and stay tuned for more info on the BRD 22 and this trip.
Break Time! But, Not For Me
Chad and JD took a break from doing some testing with the 22 BRD wildcat and 6 Creedmoor to go bow fishing down in Louisiana. Chad just had to cast a line a few times. They had a great trip with excellent results.
BRD 243 Win- Custom Chamber Test Barrel Spun Up!
The 243 Win test barrel has been spun up. Late last year I had a custom chamber reamer made for both the 6 Creedmoor and the 243 Win. The specs on these reamers are designed around the use of lighter weight bullets that are commonly used for predator hunting. Testing of the 243 Win has begun with the Superformance 58g, Hornady 75g V-Max, Hornady 87g V-Max, and the Nosler 70g handload. Stay tuned for more on this!
