Re: No Click LR carry gun
my ultimate light, cheap *long range rifle (*deer and elk inside 800) cost me total of a bought 250$. it consists of an inherited wwii 8mm german mauser (with old timer hand built custom stock), a centerpoint 4-16x mil-dot ir and timiney trigger set to 2.5#.
2 weeks ago it shot a 7 3/4", 800 yrd, 5 shot group. using mils for hold over, shot from prone off the caldwell bipod and rear instock monopod. shooting 200grain smks with 51 grains imr 4350
some are gonna say wtf!! centerpoint? well heres my experience. i bought it about 2 years ago, installed it so crosshairs are plumb and level, dial tested for plumb at full range of turrets and 12 moa for box, both at 100 yrds. passed with flying colors. used it for a year with great success. about a year ago i had it out with a friend. it was sitting on the edge of the table on its bipod. i bumped the table the rifle fell off the table directly on the rear portion of the scope. the scopes top turret smacked directly on a heafty rock. thought for sure it was done for (not a big deal at 70$) i picked up the rifle and fired one round at the 800 yrd plate. BING!!! dead center! i've continued to shoot it and have not had to reset 0 once. (i do dial it often)
this is my favorite rifle of them all
