Re: I need HELP!!!! Not enough MOA
My philosphy is simply this. The more parts between the receiver and the optic, the more chance of issues and the more weight.
Not an issue with the 338, it's already a tank. I'd never lug that monster anywhere, I'm 64 and too damn old to carry a bazooka. Thats a set up and shoot rifle. My 308 is my carry rifle and I want a lightweight but fairly potent rifle that will handle anything to 500 yards. The 308 fills that bill.
If my 338 didn't come railed, I would have installed Talley One Piece rings/mounts on that as well. As it is, it got Warne's.
I have the same scope you do BTW (on the 338) and one on the 308 as well, just a little bit less magnification.
I'm used to a 3-9, I'm old school, so this high magnification, I hardly ever use it. Most times, the scope is dialed at 4 or 6.5 The eye box is better anyway.
