This in from Dennis in Kentucky:
“The pic shows the start of a great day. This pair is from a small pack that have been using the woods at the far end of one of our pastures. I shot them from my bench rest on my deck next to my house – range was just shy of 250yds. Notice the A/I stock on this 243Win Rem 700 BDL. That is a NightForce 8×32 NXS scope. Both were taken with 55gr Nosler Ballistic Tip bullets behind IMR4064 for 3,978 fps. Shot the male first and he dropped in his tracks. Then the dumb one came back to check on him, and I shot her as soon as she emerged from the woods.
The male had an exit hole in his side – bullet entered his chest. Female had no signs of entry or exit. I shot her in the chest also.
They are on the ground under one of the large walnut trees that provide very challenging targets so getting the wind right was not an issue. Those 55gr bullets do drift quite a bit, but I’ve made this shot at walnuts hundreds of times.”

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.”
