The .308 got new glasses today

Picked up a 5-15x44 Vortex Viper HS mildot .01 mrad scope, although I really liked the 20x SS I had on it I really needed a variable magnification scope for hunting.

here are a few pictures.

    Took it out and let 10 rounds fly, sighting in and getting muzzle velocity, then took at shot at 300 yards on a rock and 405 yards on a rock... both first round hits. Picked up a tall bipod and sling and buttler caps today. Its ready to go whack some coyotes!!!





    Over all im happy with the scope! glass seems good to me.

    I like it a lot actually,

    This weekends coyote competition

    Left Friday night, slept in a tent in the rain, made 12 stands today, heavy clouds and some rain, drove 300 miles, 80 miles on very slick dirt roads. Competition check in is at 4 tomorrow afternoon. And I am home now where it is warm and not wet inside. Still raining pretty good out side. I will bet up an hour before the sun to see if its still raining or snowing. If not...... here we go again
