About the time dedicated Rifle readers find this issue in their mailbox, fall big-game hunting will be in full swing, and in some localities, deer and even elk season might be running down toward its end. So, it’s not unusual at this time, to get a letter or two from readers asking for information regarding feral hogs. These riflemen and women are looking to expand their time in the woods.

Unfortunately, just like people, time and lack of upkeep take its toll. Some .22s are more susceptible to this than others and the Remington 500 series is one of them. ...Read More >
