Re: Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50mm

I set the gun on the kitchen table and placed the ret on an animal and cranked up 10 moa. It looked like i had to add 1/2 moa to get to the same spot, put with out having the gun secured into a vise i can not say for sure. If i can find time this week end (its one of my 2 three day weekends for the month) I will strap it down and check it again and see what it does.

I would like to get out to your place sunday or monday and return the levels and borow you portabel DVD player, I will bring the gun when I come out.

Re: Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50mm

Just wanted to let you all konw I had not forgot about this thread. The kids and wife were off last week for Spring Break and we snuck down to Moab for the week for some hiking and 4x4'n. Left in good weather came back to snow on the grass and cold weather. The rest of the week is looking to be the same so I am not sure I will be getting out to further test the scope this week. But if I can get a brake in the weather on a day off I will be out testing it.

I miss Moab all ready.............

Re: Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50mm

Brett,

I only have 50 or so rounds through the gun and last time I tested the velocity it was around 2800. Once I have 100 through it I will re test and see what I am getting. The chamber was cut with a Pacific Tool and Gauge reamer, the same one Defensive Edge Uses. I has a tight neck and was cut by a very qualifyed gun smith, so it has a "match" chamber.

Got to the range 2 weeks ago and did some shooting. I cranked up 10 moa and down 10 moa and it tracked on the grid i had set up at 100 yards. I ran out of time and was not able to do a box test. That will have to wait for another day.

The snow has stopped falling, at least at lower elevations, and i should be heading to the hills behind my house in the next week to try some long range shooting (past 800 yards) with the Edge.

PS
Shooting a 338 Edge without a muzzle brake SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!
