What group sizes does your rig shoot? My 6mm Norma BR. shoots pretty tight out to 200 yds., but I have trouble reading the wind at 1,000 yds.

    [QUOTE=helidriver72;775966]Very nice looking set up, just curious why the extra high scope mount? Is it to get away from the heat waves of the barrel?[/Q Alot of bench shooters run a shield over barrel for that purpose,look at his photo and you will see small velcro patch for his I believe

    I understand that IOR Valdada has a candidate for the honor of Ultimate Scope. It is a 12X to 52X with 40mm tube and 56mm objective. I has a second focal plane reticle that has a detent that marks the hash marks in mils and another detent that marks MOA. Although it weighs 3 pounds, I think that it may have a niche in the long range game.

    Just out of curiosity, how might one go about getting a free scope from NF? I would love to help anyway I can, to get put in that special category... LOL

    Been needing 3 of them to replace my cheap stuff on my high-dollar rigs, but I guess I have to sell a few trucks to do that. LOL

    That scope looks crazy. If i sold all my guns and my car i could make a down payment maybe.

    See, there in lies the problem. Most average joes would love to have that type of scope. But lets face it when you have to feed a family and pay bills. You have to do with lesser scopes. I know that they are super awesome fantabulous. But 1000 to 2500 for a scope is outrageous. I have a hard time believing that they cost so much to produce, that the manufacture must charge that much to make money. But like a buddy of mine used to say. Who am I and what do I know.
