Turnbull elk reduction win-win for refuge, hunters
The Spokesman-Review
After five years, the once-controversial decision to allow elk hunting on Turnbull National Wildlife Refuge in Washington appears to be a win-win-win for the refuge, wildlife and hunters.

The .30 Carbine: A light but useful cartridge
by John McAdams
Designed by Winchester for the military in the early 1940s, the .30 Carbine cartridge (and the firearm it was originally designed for: the M1 Carbine), was designed to be "more than a pistol, but less than a rifle." Used by the United States military in World War II, Korea and Vietnam, the .30 Carbine also became very popular among civilian hunters and shooters. Though it is a great cartridge under the appropriate conditions, the .30 Carbine is probably one of the most underrated light rifle cartridges in the United States.
