No, I've never had it done but I think the turnaround time at the custom shop is about 2 weeks.

Email me w/some model #s and I can shoot you some prices. We can save you a little money [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img].

Send scope to premier for M1 turrets (around 175), buy Badger bases for both rifles (300) and 1 set 30mm Badger rings (130). With Badger, you can swap scopes and not be off by more than 1/2 moa. Record the difference between the rifles when you swap the scope and its simple. Save your money and get the scope you really want, not the one you can afford now, IMHO.

Bill,

Email sent, thanks.


JimD,

That is an interesting solution, the Badger base idea. If I used my guns a little bit differently I'd definately consider it. The reason I don't think it would work as well in my situation is that I want my rifles to be ready to go at a moments notice. Most of my hunting throughout the year comes when I see something at work and decide to run home for the appropriate gun and see what I can do. I'm lucky enough to be able to hunt long range a fair amount right out of my house (out to ~525 yards for deer, turkeys, and groundhogs) but it somewhat changes how I deal with my firearms, as I always want them at the ready. I feel having to change scopes before I could go after an animal who's location I knew might be prohibitive. On the other hand, last week I did have to load some shells up between seeing some deer and taking them.

Thanks for the suggestion,

Carl

Send the Leupold to Premier and have turrets installed. Then get the Nikon(its really a great scope) and decide which you like better for the 6.5/284. Both the Buckmaster and the Super Sniper are good scopes with repeatable adjustments. The SS used to be my go to scope in the $300 range before the new Nikons, and it still is for "tactical" rigs but for hunting guns the Nikon will probably serve you better.

Re: Scope advice requested: Nikon, Super Sniper, Leupold

Hey Zing I'm going to throw a monkey wrench into the mix.That 22-250 Keep it. Send it to kirby and have him turn it into a 22-250AI I get 2 to 300FPS more than a standard.Plus minimal case stretching. Last weekend I shot a yote with it. Blew a big chunk out of chest cavity,she was dead before she hit the ground. Oh hey scopes I've heard great things about the Nikons also. Don't forget about Burris either,mine is awesome.

Re: Scope advice requested: Nikon, Super Sniper, Leupold

Bill,

I re-sent the email, let me know if you don't get it, maybe I'm getting filtered out with spam for some reason, although I suspect its just a glitch in our schools email system, its not the most reliable.


Charles,

That is what I'm leaning twords most right now, although I may have the turrents installed later rather than sooner. Also worried if I go with Premier turrets that I might void my Leupold warrenty, does anyone know if this is the case?


Iron Worker,

Thats definately a chambering I'll be considering when the time comes, along with a 6br or one of its improved variants. Out of curiosity, what bullet did you use on that coyote, and what was the range?


Thanks everyone,
Carl
