I test a lot of weapons through the course of my business, and along the way I find various ones that suit very specific purposes. I’ve stumbled upon my recent favorite “office rifle.” You see, my office is located on the second story of my house, which overlooks a sizable chunk of my farm. I constantly scan for targets of opportunity across hay fields up to 440 yards from my second floor office window. My office benchrest is disguised as a run-of-the-mill credenza.
Dubbed the “Working Man’s Sport Utility Rifle” by my editor, I set out to prove the worthiness of Ashbury Precision Ordnance’s SABER M700 chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor “against predators of the four- and two-legged variety.” The likelihood of the zombie apocalypse kicking off this week is rather low, so I’ll primarily stick with the much more likely scenario of giving a coyote a dirt nap.
