Re: My custom R25 rig

So far it's great! Clear, great clicks, good eye relief and eye box, awesome reticle. My biggest complaint is that when you press the turrets back down to lock them on mine you have to move both of them around very slightly in order to push it all the way down in the locked position. I haven't used it a lot yet though.

Thanks for the feed back on that optic, I can visualize what your saying very clearly.

Re: My custom R25 rig

Well I shot the match and the rifle did really good. Me on the other hand did ok at best. I hit 12 out of 20 targets and my longest hit was 969yds and the farthest target was 1070(+ or -)yds. This was my first match and I caught myself making mistakes like not watching my bubble level, bad shooting positions, and not making wind calls. The rifle had no problems other than some blow back from the suppressor making the ammo dirty which didn't effect anything really. 1st stage I hit 2 of 5 targets, 2nd stage I hit 2 of 5, 3rd stage I hit 4 of 5, 4th stage i hit 4 of 5. As you can tell once I started to settle down I made more hits.

Re: My custom R25 rig

Sounds like fun, I guess you know you need to practice your stress shooting. Bring your wife to the range and have her yell and belittle you while you shoot that should fix it. If you can focus through that you might just win next time.

What ammo where you shooting?
