Re: Hunting with tactical rifle?

USoptics sent the scope housing to Robar before the scope was assembled, USoptics didn't charge for the paint job either. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

I had a Swarovski painted by Robar before the USoptics but I sold it to get the USoptics.

They also do Desert patterns, etc...

If you call Robar to have your scope done, most of the sales rep's will tell you they won't paint your scope but talk to Tadd he will get it done for you. Tell him Nick sent you. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Hunting with tactical rifle?

I would have to encourage you to give it a try, it is awsome. I have a remigton 700 with a milspec barrel 24" 1-11 and a quater twist with a McMillan M40-A1 stock with a nightforce scope and 20minute tapered bases. It is my mountain sheep rig and though it is heavy, when the long shot comes, shooting my trophy is a cinch. In September 2002 I killed a full curl dall sheep with one shot at 763 yards. I also use a Leupold Mark 4 10x for 600 yard and less hunting with exellent results.

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.

Re: Hunting with tactical rifle?

I usually hunt with a scoped Springfield Armory M1A. It weighs about 12 pounds and doesn't seem heavy to me and I carry it all over the place. I also hunt with a Savage 10FP .308 with a 24 inch barrel, it doesn't seem heavy either. A friend from work took his Savage 110FP .300 win mag elk hunting a few months ago and I didn't hear him complain about the weight. If a tactical rifle is kicking your butt, that is a good excuse to quit smoking and start hitting the weights and the treadmill.

Not sure what S1 uses but I have a Eagle Industries Drag bag/Shooting mat, I believe it's called the Hybrid, It too has backpacking straps. Mine is Woodland camo.
