At WMS we spend our year helping sporting rifle shooters decide what kit is right for them. As a company we buy new rifles, scopes, ammunition and other shooting related products through the year. We also receive loan products from companies whose products we especially like for demo and review. No one pays us to promote their products and we will never be tied to using just one make of scope, rifle or ammunition. If we only used one brand, how could we compare it and rate it against the competition? This regularly updated reviews page features the products that work for us, that represent particular qualities and that stand the test of regular use in challenging conditions on our shooting areas.

Steel Core Designs Cyclone .338LM
The Steel Core Cyclone rifle stands out as one of the few ultra-modern law enforcement and military application rifles designed and manufactured in England.Available in LSR (308), similar MSR (338) and slightly modified HSR (50 BMG) formats, it’s a rifle thoroughly designed from brake to butt to work as a totally homogenous unit for precision shooters.
Yukon Photon XT 6.5×50 Night Vision Riflescope
The Yukon Photon XT 6.5×50 night vision riflescope is a rare product in the world of shooting optics as it not only represents exceptional value for money, but also simplicity of use and versatile. It will quite frankly change the way you shoot.
Steel Core Designs Cyclone .308W/7.62×51
Rifles don’t come much more tactical than the Steel Core Cyclone which is the best military spec sniper rifle for long-range shooting we have recently seen. Yes, we’re putting our money where our mouth is on this one and were delighted to accept the offer from Steel Core Designs, to be sole UK distributor to the civilian market for its Cyclone range.
Zeiss Victory V8 2.8-20×56
In a market where the terms ‘long range’ and ‘hunting’ are becoming closely associated buzzwords, not all scopes or rifle shooters actually meet the demands of the task. The Zeiss Victory V8 is one that really can deliver.
Minox ZP5 3-15×50 Riflescope
What are your options if you own one rifle that you want to do almost everything with? You need to take it stalking, you go on a driven boar hunt every couple of years, and you often join friends for some long-range shooting at steel targets.If you have a rifle and scope combination that will do all of this, you will become very proficient. Respect the hunter with one rifle.
Blaser R8 Professional
The Blaser R8 synthetic, professional, standard weight .308 Winchester rifle is unbelievable. While I don’t personally feel the need for the straight pull bolt action I know it helps many people and I am happy shooting and hunting with it.
