Ivey Rings

Just picked up a set of Ivey Rings with 150 MOA of adjustment built in for my Barrett. I am going to test them out on this rifle anyway. I am in process of building a 7 SAUM, they may find their way onto that rifle eventually. Looking forward to getting out and putting it through its paces. I will post up results after I get some rounds down range with this setup. I am running a NF 8x32x56 with the Ivey Rings. Should be a nice set-up, plenty of magnification and still alot of available adjustment!

Looking forward to see how well they track as well as their repeatability. Keep us posted.

Re: Ivey Rings

Got some rounds loaded up and going to head out this weekend to put it through its paces. I may mount it on a different rifle and do tracking test. Then mount it on the fifty and check it for long range repeatability.

Re: Ivey Rings

They are $525.00 and you can buy them from Iveyshooting.com. Or jus google "Ivey rings" and their site will come up. Going out Saturday to test them for the first time.

Re: Ivey Rings

Test #1 last weekend was a bust. I was going to first try them on a .223 to do some close work and check to make sure they were tracking. I could not get them zeroed, I had my right windage maxed out on my NF and still was hitting left edge of paper at 100 yards. Tried a few times to get that sorted out. Switched it over to the Barrett and re-centered my windage knob and was able to zero after two rounds.

Dialed up 20 MOA, took a shot, back down to zero, took a shot, my zero shifted 5 MOA up. Dialed back up and it seemed consistent as far as POI, but zero remained 5 MOA off.

I decided since I was out there and I had the target set up already to send a few at distance. Had a 3' plate at 2100 yards. Dialed elevation which seemed to work was able to stay fairly consistent on elevation, but had to dial over 20 MOA of wind, a shooting buddy was shooting his SAUM and connecting with right around 1 MOA of windage dialed....something seems to be amiss with the set-up.

I still am holding out hope, contacted the manufacturer today, he was out of the office, but is supposed to be calling me back tomorrow. Going to take the set-up back out for further testing once I get some input from him.
