Its no different that scopes used by snipers and wannabe's today. Back in REAL WORLD they used 8X and I think??..not sure...some 10X fixed glass. Now every guy that lays belly down to shoot has to have a 5-50 X with enough hash marks in the view finder to block the target out totally.

Military...yeah.."better"!


Please quote my post & highlight where I put Military and Better into the same sentence let alone the same paragraph. Back in the day they drove model A's too.....

As to your second comment, I do not own nor ever have owned a 5-50 (if they exist). My comments are based on those who use their firearms as a tool to either save lives or earn their living where "Good Enough" doesn't cut it.

If I have to get out the crayons I will. I never said your vaunted EGW wouldn't work, I merely stated that there are other options that may provide better quality & strength. I DID state that in particular situations, with particular setups, they are probably not best choice.

Just b/c you have a $5K rifle, doesn't mean that name brand on any of the parts really means jack squat. I could have my friend built me a no-name rifle, machine me no-name custom carbon fiber stock, have him do all the work, machine me no-name rings & bases, and I bet it will STILL outshoot most of the rifles out there.

Just b/c a car says Ferrari on the side, doesn't mean the window-licker behind the wheel can drive it...

I have 2, 20 MOA, and 2, 0 MOA. 1 of each for my long and short-action 700's that I shoot at distance with.

It's the same reason that everyone is dumping their 5R .308's and getting .300 WinMags now.....B/c if the military uses it, it MUST be the best. Since the military has now phased out all their .308 M24's, and are rebarreling them to .300 WM.

.300 WM is a hell of a cartridge, but the 7mmSTW is better. Whether people want to admit it or not. Ballistics are ballstics. Holds more powder, shoots flatter, shoots further, and has bullets that carry more, or equal, BC as compared bullet weight-to-bullet weight.

That's quite a kick in the guts, I feel for your there, no joking. It's like messing with a guys truck or girl, there are some things you just don't touch.

Just b/c you have a $5K rifle, doesn't mean that name brand on any of the parts really means jack squat. I could have my friend built me a no-name rifle, machine me no-name custom carbon fiber stock, have him do all the work, machine me no-name rings & bases, and I bet it will STILL outshoot most of the rifles out there.

I agree, to a point; name brand equipment manufacturers (a relatively vague term) are still in business because their products work & those who use & abuse their gear believe in them enough to pay more for that extra piece of mind. Your Ferrari comment made me laugh as it is true. Then again, I as the shooter would much rather be the least capable of the package (rifle, optics & shooter).

As stated before, different strokes, thats all.
