Have you tried the Match King on game and are you a Longrange hunter as this forum is titled?
I can assure you, Match Kings work far better then many "so called" hunting bullets and that's many years of experiance talking.
If you haven't tried the Match king on game, please don't knock them on this forum.
Many of us here have proved what they do to game. I have never lost a game animal to date while using the MK and thats after many kills on game the size of deer and elk.
My Longrange friends and I will continue to use them as long as Sierra makes them.
Contact Rich Markholtz (A friend of mine in Ballistics) at Sierra. He knows what we have done for many years with the Match Kings and will enlighten you. Tell him I asked you to call concerning Match Kings.
The scope is mounted that high because Burris don't make their 30mm signature rings (weaver style) in anything lower. I have a cheek piece for that rifle but had removed it to shoot from the rest. I will be fixing this situation ASAP.
