Coyboy, congrats and nice shot! I concur with everyone else that we need a photo! Lastly, how do you like that Weaver Tactical? I've thought about buying it a time or two, but haven't run in to anyone that has one. I'd like your honest opinion on it.

That's the way it's done!
Good shooting and congratulations on a well earned trophy.
Find it
Range it
Click it
Pull it
Dump it

If it's not far, it's boring.

Re: 156\" buck @ 609 yards.

Thanks guys, for all the kind words.

My father passed Oct. 31 of multiple myloma, a very painful and deadly cancer that started in his vertibray. He was diagnosed Oct 28 of 2004, after 2 months of severe back pain. What was the real shocker was that my mother had a fatal heart atttack the day after my dads diagnosis. She was walking out the lobby of Church after morning mass with no symtoms and just collapsed. So It's been a very tough year. more so for my father who lost his wife and battled his cancer valiantly for a year.

On a happy note my wife gave birth to our first son on Nov. 28. He took his grandfathers name, Daniel.

So hold dear all your loved ones.

I will defenatly try to get pics posted in a week when I visit my B-I-L.

Re: 156\" buck @ 609 yards.

Big Sky, I like the weaver tacticals, for the price that Natchez is selling them for, you can't go wrong. I have two, both 4x14, and while working with one I found the adjutments not completly reliable. After a days worth of twisting, and going back to my 300 yard zero. Left me about 2 inches off point of aim. I have not encountered this problem with the other scope. This is not all that serious and was actually good because it forced me to aim and calculate with the mils. Which aids in the speed of sending the bullet to target quickly.

The glass is good, and very possibly the best glass for the price market the scope is in. The mil dots are in the first focal plane, which is a plus. Long term durability is unkown, I've only had the scopes about a year and my guns are not handled real rough if I can help it.

Kirby Allen got me on these scopes, seems he has had good luck with them also. If you have a number of guns that need good glass and you can't afford the better scopes, the weaver tactical is a very good comprimise.
