    Hello: New member here, I have a prohunter in .260rem that a pervious owner tried to make into a 'brush gun'. It looks like they cut the barrel with a hacksaw, recrowned it with a dremel, and, just for giggles, bored out the rifling with a drill bit. The barrel is ~17.5" from the locked bolt...

    I am in the process of exploring heavy medium bores for my next rifle, and I am intrigued by the 376 Steyr. While I find the 376 Steyr interesting, it appears that it may not have much of a future. A single source for ammo (and therefore brass) makes on highly dependent upon Hornady. I would...

    Hi all, First post. Looking to buy a Pro Hunter and would appreciate any advice. My b/g is mainly in smaller calibres and want to buy a centrefire rifle to try it out. Currently my budget is pointing towards a ProHunter, most likely in .243 (as that would be enough for the ranges I'd be...

    Hi there, I'm Jonathan and am based in the UK. I have just bought my first Steyr rifle (Win .308). It's second hand and described as an "SBS Tactical" on the barrel, and looks a bit like a Prohunter, however I know little about it, and would really like to find out more. If anyone has any...

    I'm looking for information on where to find a one piece picatinny rail for my .243 and .308. The Talley short action rail doesn't match the holes on the receiver. Any help would be appreciated.

    I'm not overly happy with the flex in the synthetic forestock of my pro hunter. Although it hasn't caused me any real issue, when I carry it in the safari sling i can see the forestock flex towards the barrel. Im concerned that over time the substrate will develope a memory causing the forestock...

    Just got home from the first week of the Alabama deer season. Used my new Prohunter .270 with the 20 in. barrel. A real pleasure from a treestand, very well -balanced, easy to aim and maneuver. I took all the spacers out of the adjustable stock-- the shorter length-of -pull fits my small frame...

    Finally got a chance to break-in and sight-in my Prohunter Stainless 7mm Rem Mag. A pain in the butt, but a joy as well. Decided the first shots would be mostly a waste, so I went with inexpensive Maine Cartridge Company 139 gr Hornady BTSP. I wanted them 2.4 inches high at 100 yards, and it...

    I like to carry my rifle muzzle down hanging off my left shoulder. This lets you very quickly shift the buttstock to the right shoulder, keeping your left hand on the forend. The rifle comes up in the hasty sling position. The neat thing about the Prohunter, with the detachable sling studs, you...

    Just joined the site- purchased a new Prohunter Synthetic Stainless in 7mm Rem Mag. Need advice on barrel break-in procedure, and where to get a bore guide to fit this model. The net is full of often-conflicting advice on this, so I would appreciate hearing about methods that work on Steyr...
