As a young enthusiast eager to explore the world of shooting and hunting, my journey with the Gunwerks Magnus Rifle System has been one of growth, learning, and unforgettable experiences. Introduced to this system during the Gunwerks Long Range Shooting School alongside my father, I embarked on a path that has made me a skilled marksman and avid big game hunter.

The Gunwerks Magnus Rifle System came into my life during those early days at the shooting school. Under the guidance of skilled instructor Jeremy Winters, I learned the system, practicing to distances of 1,000 yards. This experience served as a foundation for my shooting abilities and sparked a passion for the sport that would shape my future pursuits.

The confidence I gained from shooting the Magnus Rifle System ignited my desire to peruse big game animals. Equipped with the knowledge and skills acquired during those training sessions, I took my first steps into the world of big game hunting. The lessons learned from training became the cornerstone of my journey.

Countless hours spent at the practice range and understanding the Magnus Rifle paid off when the time came for my first out-of-state hunt. A New Mexico Mule Deer hunt tested my shooting skills, physical and mental abilities. As a youth, I navigated miles of terrain, shouldering the lightweight carbon fiber rifle while accompanying seasoned guides in search of the perfect buck. All the combined practice sessions resulted in a single 360-yard shot that harvested my first big game animal.

The next years continued my growth and success. A Michigan hunt for giant northern whitetails put my Magnus Rifle to the test once again. Taking advantage of the steady rest offered by a box stand, once again a single 252-yard shot and I had my massive 8-point buck. This hunt really boosted my confidence in the Magnus Rifle and my ability.

My journey also led me back to the heat of New Mexico, where I pursued antelope in the scorching August weather. Overcoming challenges posed by heat waves and optics, I remained true in my determination. On the second day of the hunt, I anchored a magnificent antelope and with a quick follow up shot celebrations started.

The following Fall I found myself in the deep timber of Maine for a bull moose hunt. Now with years of experience and confidence in my Magnus Rifle chambered in 6.5 PRC, I embraced the challenge. Despite not finding a shot opportunity after six days of relentless hunting, I realized that equipment was not the limiting factor. While this year's hunt did not go as hoped, it served as a reminder that hunting is sometimes just enjoying the time with your loved ones.

I consider myself incredibly fortunate to be the proud owner of the Magnus Rifle System by Gunwerks, specifically in the 6.5 PRC caliber. In my extensive experience with firearms, I can confidently proclaim that the Magnus Rifle System has surpassed all my expectations. Firstly, the accuracy of the Magnus Rifle is nothing short of spectacular. This precision-engineered weapon allows for crisp, clean shots at considerable distances. It's clear that Gunwerks has put immense thought into every detail of the design, and the result is a product that inspires not only confidence but a sense of pure satisfaction every time you pull the trigger. The 6.5 PRC caliber variant I own has provided a fantastic combination of speed, flat trajectory, and punch. It's been a game-changer on our hunting trips. My son and I have successfully used this remarkable rifle on several hunts, taking down mule deer, antelope, and whitetail deer with precision and consistency. This has not only cemented the rifle's place in our arsenal but has also contributed to unforgettable experiences and cherished memories. The Magnus Rifle System is also built to withstand the rigors of real-world hunting scenarios. Its durability and ruggedness have been tried and tested in various environments, and it's consistently emerged victorious, always ready for the next outing. Despite its ruggedness, it remains comfortable to use and handle, no small feat given its robust nature. Furthermore, I'm impressed by the user-friendly nature of the Magnus. The adjustability of the stock and the smooth action of the bolt mean that it can be tailored to fit individual shooting styles and preferences. This level of customization is a clear indicator that Gunwerks is committed to delivering a rifle system that goes beyond a one-size-fits-all approach. Customer service is also worth mentioning. The team at Gunwerks has been top-notch, demonstrating their dedication to customer satisfaction and their passion for their craft. It's always a pleasure interacting with a company that values their customers as much as Gunwerks does. In conclusion, the Magnus Rifle System by Gunwerks is an investment that has provided us not just with a top-tier hunting tool, but with memories and experiences that are priceless. I wholeheartedly give it a 5-star rating and would recommend it to any serious hunting enthusiast. Gunwerks continues to live up to their reputation for precision, reliability, and exceptional customer service.


Looking ahead to the future, I am excited for the upcoming oppotunties. This upcoming December, I will once again be in the field, this time in Arizona, chasing a bull elk with my trusted Gunwerks rifle by my side. My journey with the Magnus Rifle continues, and I'm eager to continue building my skills, pushing my limits, and creating unforgettable memories in the great outdoors.
