Dan McLelland is an avid hand loader, target shooter, varmint and big game hunter and has been fine tuning rifles and ammunition for close to 40 years.
The difference between a 2 inch group and a 3 inch group on your favorite hunting rifle is quite often the difference between a perfect hunting trip and a disappointment.
Dan understands what it takes to make that rifle a dependable part of your trip. Sometimes the bedding is an issue, sometimes the bore has deep seated copper residue. A poorly aligned scope is a usual culprit.
Here at Hillbilly Arms, we can make your favorite rifle dependable again.
