Good post. It should motivate some folks to take things to the next level.
I've worked up the same kind of setup for my carry gun. It's about a pound heavier than yours and a 338 RUM but still an easy carry.
My scope is a FFP Mil reticle. I think I'd like an MOA reticle better......
I kind of 'lucked out' when validating the drop chart that the rig is spot on with the chart out to 1177 yds. Kind of a 'cross over' rig.
