Re: My "Long Ranger" build

Lil Tank- I was gonna wait til I got a full day at the range with some decent ammo to give a thorough test of the Hawke, but from what I can tell u and the 40shot-50 shots I have put on this scope and its a trooper! I havnt done the box test yet, but the clicks are good, repeatable, but im thinking they're more like 1/3 moat adjustments. I got to dial it in pretty good today so I played with the 1-2 click adjustments to get it just where I want it. I caught the scope on clearance for $300u bucks and I will gladly put it against a vxII. Im beginning to learn that with the high $ stuff, you get those exact 1/4 or 1/8 TRUE adjustments. After today im gonna finish getting my reload stuff together bc I have now seen the potential of the RUM!.

That's a good looking rig. How much lighter is that stock over the super sniper?

Can't help you with that and considering how well mine shot the 180gr sciroccos today I may never feed it anything else.

Re: My "Long Ranger" build

Those 180 siroccos was my original OTC ammo of choice, but im impressed with the core lok psp. Its always good to know what shell will work good just in case I get in a bind and can't load any. And since I'm learning about reloading I may as well see what the 200gr NAB is all about.

The BC of the Sciroccoo makes the PSP look like something that should be fired from a pellet gun though HA!

Hey if in your rifle they perform better, thats what I'd shoot as well because the math doesn't always support the end result.

Accubonds have shot well in the rifles I've tried them in but not this well. I know a lot of people who swear by them.

They just started making a 100gr AB in the .277 specifically for the 6.8's and I'll have a couple of hundred of those to try in a couple of weeks.

Re: My "Long Ranger" build

The tactical stock is at least two pounds lighter than the USS! Don't get me wrong the USS is a good stock for the bench and if you didn't want to put a brake on a big bore. However for my use the tactical is just what I needed. Lightweight, stiff, practical, and best of all, affordable...

As for the sciroccos, I only shot the level II, and I had mentally psyched myself out cause I was so pissed for spending $65on on the wrong shells. I went by shop today and got the 180 sciroccos in power level III and im ready to see if I can get. 5moa at 200 yds
