From the Mailbag:
I thought I’d send you a couple pic’s from a hunt I went on in 2012. It was a Moose/Grizzly hunt in Northern British Columbia. The rifle is a winchester Mod. 70 in 338 win. mag with an absolutely beautiful accurate innovations walnut stock made by you all. It had been raining for a couple days including the day I shot my moose. I shot him once at a measured 454 yards, a great testament to your product. Three days later I took a Boone & Crockett Grizzly at 260 yards. The guide begged me to sell him my rifle.
Thanks for producing a product that allows "Old School" guys like me to enjoy the beauty and tradition of a walnut stock without sacrificing any performance.
P.S. couldn’t resist including couple more pic’s from a stone sheep hunt a couple years earlier. The rifle is a Pre 64 winchester mod. 70 in 270 cal. with another beautiful accurate innovations stock. That day, as is common in Northern B.C. we suffered through about 8 hours of intermittent rain, sleet, and believe it or not snow as we waited for the ram to feed into range. This was on the very last afternoon of a 14 day hunt. I had one shot or go home skunked, not the situation you want to be worried about whether or not your stock has warped from all the moisture enough to cause a miss. The shot was 318 yards.
This relating to the subject of the June 19th post below:
“I have to tell you. Accurate Innovations has done it again. True to your name you have created another beautifully accurate work of art. I took the new tactical, practical – not blacktical prone hook design rifle out on its maiden voyage on a local 1000 yard prone match here in CA. As expected it performed and felt awesome. As well as turned heads. I was proud to say I was a Accurate Innovations customer and walk away with second place in the magnum class on a hot and windy CA high desert day.
Thanks again you guys are the best and this rifle not only is a great addition to my competition rifles but also is complemented by the beautiful maple stock you made for my wife’s rifle.”
“Just thought that I would send along pictures of my South African plains game safari with Ingogo Safari’s, booked thru Elite Hunting USA.
The M-70 .300 Win. Mag., that I sent to you in 2009 finally got to Africa. It performed to perfection, taking all but the Blue Wildebeest with just one shot. This rifle is very accurate. In preparing for the adventure, that I had dreamed about since a young boy required many hours at the range. I have been able to group three shots on numerous occasions that measure 5/8" at one hundred yards and 1 1/2" at two hundred.
I can’t thank you enough for the great job!”
