Introducing the Blaser R8 Classic Sporter

Introducing the Blaser R8 Classic Sporter

Blaser showed off its newest bolt-action rifle at the 2014 SHOT Show in Las Vegas, the Blaser R8 Classic Sporter. The R8 Classic Sporter features a conventional receiver, Rigby-style cheek piece and Prince of Wales grip. Blaser's unique, straight pull bolt-action gives you an interchangeable caliber system — capable of accepting calibers ranging from .500 Jeffery to .222 Remington — which makes the R8 Classic Sporter one of the most flexible bolt-actions on the market. The R8 Classic Sporter is available now in multiple calibers and has a suggested retail of $4,495.

Stuffed Elk Backstrap Recipe

Smoking the backstrap on a Camp Chef Woodwind pellet grill first, then finishing it on a blazing-hot skillet or flattop, creates a perfectly cooked, medium-rare steak with a crispy, seared exterior. The filling of diced mushrooms and creamy Boursin cheese adds a whole new level of amazing flavors to an otherwise classic smoked venison loin.
