Big Horn Sheep Ewe Hunt Success with SABER M700 .30-06!


SABER® M700™ .30-06 Sport-TAC Modern Sport Utility Rifle (MSR) Scores!

Big Game Hunting Season 2018 – Montana

Big game hunting season is in full swing out in Montana and we have our first Field Test Report in from Britton C. who’s putting the SABER® M700™ .30-06 Sport-TAC to the test with great success. Britton harvested a nice Big Horn Sheep Ewe on his first trip afield with this APO rifle. You can read more about APO’s SABER M700 Modern Sporting Rifles here.

APO Field Test Report - Britton C.

I'm excited to continue hunting with this rifle and plan to fill my Mule Deer tag. I have high hopes to take a wolf with it as well. More pictures and details to come.

The rifle is extremely comfortable to shoot. When it came time to fill my Bighorn Sheep Ewe tag, I felt 100% confident in myself and the rifle. After a quick range of 278 yards, dialing up 3.25 MOA, the .30-06 Federal Edge TLR 175gr cartridge made a clean, ethical kill, transferring roughly 2000 ft/lbs to the vitals.

The rifle performed amazing. When I first picked up the rifle, I was pleasantly surprised at how light it was. Even after adding a titanium suppressor and a loaded magazine to the combo, it was a breeze packing it up and down the undulating Montana Missouri River Breaks. The AR-style stock makes adjusting for different shooting positions and angles quick and simple. The added option of a collapsing stock and multiple forend styles allows modulating the rifle to suit the hunt, and can be changed with ease at camp with basic tools.
