At the Range: Nosler Varmageddon Signature Series AR Varmint Rifle

At the Range: Nosler Varmageddon Signature Series AR Varmint Rifle

We recently hit the range with Nosler's Mason Payer, who brought along the Nosler Varmageddon Signature Series AR varmint rifle. The product of a joint effort from Nosler, Noveske and Leupold, the Varmageddon rifle is chambered in 5.56/.223 and features an 18-inch stainless barrel with a 1:8 twist and a free-floated 13.5-inch NSR handguard, plus a Mil-Spec receiver extension, Geissle SD-E trigger, Noveske Short Throw Safety (STS) Selector, and a PRS stock and MOE grip from Magpul.

The rifle retails for $2,295, and is also available in a complete package with the Leupold VX3 Long Range 4.5-14x50mm Varmageddon Edition Scope with calibrated CDS turret, Harris 6- to 9-inch bipod, two boxes of Varmageddon ammo and more for $3,195.

After putting a few rounds through the Varmageddon and hitting steel at 550 yards, we decided to have a little fun and test the penetration power of the 64-grain Nosler Varmageddon ammo on a few water jugs. Check out the video straight from the range.

Guns & Ammo TV: Shooting 1,270 Yards with the 5.56 NATO

Guns & Ammo Rifles & Optics Editor Tom Beckstrand was on location in Idaho where he pushed the limits of the 5.56 NATO cartridge in this segment of “Long Range Tech” for Guns & Ammo TV. Pairing a SIG Sauer MCX Virtus rifle loaded with Hornady's 73-grain ELD-M ammunition, Beckstrand attempted to ring steel set at 1,270 yards, an incredible distance for any 5.56-chambered rifle and beyond the typical range for an AR-15.

Pocket-Pistol Carry Tips and Tricks

Pocket carry, as a method of concealed carry for a defensive firearm, can be a practical option when done right. This is especially true during the colder months when heavy outer garments can obstruct access to a traditional waistline holster. Former U.S. Navy SEAL Jeff Gonzales, president of Trident Concepts, joins G&A contributor Kimberly Heath-Chudwin to discuss guns, training and gear, including Blackhawk's TecGrip holster that can make pocket carry more successful.
