I put a Burris Veracity 2–10x42mm scope on each rifle, turned the power to 10, and shot from a Lead Sled at 100 yards, outdoors, in a 10-mph crosswind. After each three-shot group, I rotated to the next rifle. I also carried each gun in the field and shot away from the bench to gauge their practical value for hunting. Meanwhile, I evaluated build quality, stock dimensions, fit and finish, trigger pull, special features, and overall performance. —J.J.
