The autumn moose hunting

Consider the fall hunt for moose. Why autumn? Winter driven hunt for prey, more profitable to hold after the establishment of stable snow cover.

Guns with such a combined type of drilling do not stand out for any unique qualities, especially when the comparative availability of modern ammunition with high ballistic characteristics for smoothbore weapons. And yet they have a certain “zest”. At least the ability to have an almost rifled barrel without the mandatory five-year experience. But not only that.

At the October exhibition “Weapons and Hunting-2015”, VPO “Molot” presented its joint development with JSC “Techkrim” -the VPO-208 rifle. Continue reading
