Been talking to Kenton as well, so the turret issue is a non-issue. I DO prefer MOAs as well......more accurate as far as shot placement too, but most of the Spotter scopes with reticules have MILS.......yuck. Kenton is going to make me a custom on for a custom .22 LR that I have set up for 500 yard shooting.

BTW, the Gunwerks two Video collection of Series 1 is really good! It does suck that they will not make you a turret, as on TV they advertise that they will.

As for running out of MOAs......I have a 20MOA rail, and my rings are Barrett Adjustables from +15 MOA to +40 MOA for a total of either 35 MOA or 60 MOAs, so it is kinda doubtful I will run it out of drop. Kirby's rifle will shoot better than me most likely anyway, LOL.........not that I am a bad shooter........I shoot to 1K quite often, just not beyond! I'll have to practice beyond that!!!

Re: Bragging on Kirby Allen, and my new AX

I would recommend the NXS 3.5x15x56, the 5.5x22x56, or the ATACR. The NXS 8x32 does not have enough vertical adjustment in my opinion. The others have 110moa, 100moa, and over 130 moa respectively. The ATACR is much better in low light conditions. Gary

My thoughts at the time was that if it was good enough for the Marines, well then now. ;) My original thoughts WERE the Medium Palma. In either way of thinking, Kirby did an excellent job with an action that he was not very familiar with at all, and had a heck of a time just separating the factory barrel from the action. 'Tis the sign of a exceptional gunsmith. Now all I need is some GOOD 30mm Glass, and that will take a while since I am paying off my back surgery. Still I am a proud Papa, and am patiently waiting to pay off bills to get a Leupold or Nightforce (1st choice).

Mindcrime,

I have a 338 lapua on the same action and stock, iv been having a hard time finding a 20 moa base for it. What brand of base are you using and where did you purchase it?

Re: Bragging on Kirby Allen, and my new AX

That gun is terrible. You should send it to me before you waste money shooting it. Lol




That thing is super nice. I wish on every star that was in my safe. You will really enjoy that. I cannot imagine the ballistics of that beast. That tops the BMG in every way in my book.

Let us know how you like it and get us a range report. Again, incredible rifle.

I recommend a 5.5-22 or the new atacr as well. I have all and even the 32x and 42x the 32x would be decent if you could get like 40-50moa base for it as it only has 65 moa travel. The atacr will have about everything you need if 25x is enough for you and it is plenty for me out to 2000 yds.

Good luck!
