Re: 2 rifles and one scope?

I am thinking of using my Vortex PST 6-24x50mm MOA FFP scope with the custom turret for my 6mm Norma BR. Then swapping the scope to my 30-06 since the trajectory of both are close enough for deer hunting out to 400 yds. All I need now is another Picatinny rail for the -06 and I can use the same rings. I'll have to test it at the range to make sure it will work first though.

Re: 2 rifles and one scope?

I swap scopes around all the time on my rifles. Use a good rail mount ie. A Badger on each rifle and it will work well. I am not a fan of all the turrets set for a specific loads. Some really like them but for me just give me 1/4 moa turrets and I will take care of the adjustments from there.

I'm thinking the same way. I mess with loads too much to have a "set" load, plus the elevation changes and things you go through from hunt to hunt, maybe it would be OK out to a certain distance. I haven't researched it all that much, but the accuracy of the system seems limited.
