Saw this photo on Gunaddicts.com. I wept.

I was browsing Gunaddicts.com this evening when I found this photo. That's an NCStar scope.







TIME FOR SACKCLOTH AND ASHES.

    If that scope sat any higher it would need a flashing red light to warn aircraft.

    Thats good !!!!!

    Made my day.

    The bad thing about setting a scope up this high is any canting will kill accuracy at distance.

    The scope is another thing, the 338 will make a meal of the NC Star.

    You wept, I had that bile taste in the back of my mouth. You can always ask, "what were they thinking", but they weren't. I did not notice that it was a .338 until it was pointed out. If all of that is brass shot out of that rifle, it is probably already gone (the scope that is).

    My 300 SAUM is not kind to scopes (8.5 lbs all up), so I cannot think that this abortion is.
