the sws2000 mount that pete supplied me would be my reccomendation. it is spot on in terms of quality and i am very impressed with it. there are pics on the equipment review thread.

derek

just out of interest, how far do you think you 243 is gonna get you before you go transonic?

Re: CANT , How much , Rail or Mount

Thanks everyone for your replies,

Pete, AI are offering their mount with 20moa in it as standard.

As I have now asked for picatinny rail your sws rail would be ideal , how much is it?

My PMII was second hand @ 600 with double turn and parallax.



Derek, yes good question!

Realistically I have a 600M set up.

The thing is though I want to free up the second turn so those yellow bits switch on in the turret cause they look nice.

I figure if I was to go to 1000Mtrs with 90gr lapua scenars @ 3120 fps they would arrive @ 1188.8 fps and need 119 clks.

Just fast enough?

The other thing is when I re barrel to 1in8 and re chamber to AI.243 it will be all ready for action

cheers
Jeza

Re: CANT , How much , Rail or Mount

Jeza. the mount retails at 350 euro's ( thats 239 quid) it sounds a lot, but when you think about the fact that the rifle its designed for has a built in picatinny rail, so you don't need to pay for a screw on one. I'd do you one for 200 quid. To be honest if you are getting a canted picatinny rail you'd be better of using badger ord rings. but if you are getting a flat pic rail you will need a canted set of rings. I can get you the Badgers for a decent price too.
Pete

Re: CANT , How much , Rail or Mount

what powder you planning on using in the 243? i ran it through quickload and 3200plus is easily attainable, assuming you have a 26" pipe?

Re: CANT , How much , Rail or Mount

My barrel will be 24".
I have figues for a 90Gr FMJ through a 23" with 40.9grs of N160 (which I have got) giving velocity of 3127 fps.

What is the slowest you want to be going before loss of accuracy?

hi gerald

the load you have listed above will not give that velocity in quickload. where are you getting your data from?
