The .30-40 Krag was used last year to take a cull buck at 512 yards with one shot, using the same load. This puts the fun back into hunting and shooting.


I would like to say "thank you" to all law enforcement and hunters who recently have begun using the DW Battlesight. We appreciate your continued support!
