Re: Little help on LR Rifle Options?

The turrets on my scopes were installed by Leupold. It required that I send the scope to them. They turned the job around quickly - just a matter of two or three weeks.

Like you, I will upgrade to a nightforce...probably in '10. My choice will be NXS 5.5-22x50 with NP-R1 reticle.

    I called Kenton Industries today and I talked to the tech support. He was pretty cool. I told him what I had and he was really helpful. I think im going to go with the laser etched turrets customized to my load. I like the fact that I wont have to count clicks and have charts and I can just dial and shoot. I have a really accurate load right now for it and I need to chrono it to make sure my spreads are okay. What is the max as far as spreads between shots. 15fps, 30.... to be accurate at 800-1000yards? Also it will have a zero stop feature which sounds handy. With my luck I would have my zero all screwed up without it I also looked into their windage turret and it looks pretty handy. Does anyone have any experience with em? Thanks for all the help!

    I think that both of your scopes are of good quality. I had the same problem last year and looked at all options. The NF are GREAT scopes, but very expensive. The option that I found that was within my budget and provided the best results was a ATN 10x65Z Army Mil-dot. This scope is less expensive than the NF, but this scope is heavy, 5 lbs. This is a true long range scope. Couple this with the iSnipe ballsitic program that I have on my iPhone, this is a deadly combination. The ATN scope has built in BDC for five different calibers and is very accurate, but it is calculated for even yardages in 100 yard increments. I have a HS Precision stock on my 308 and I love it. This stock feels great in your hands. You can't go wrong with a McMilliam stock. Happy shooting
