Roy,

I'm in standby mode.
I swapped out scopes, putting my Mark 4 4.5x14 on my 338 RUM, I'm shooting 5.8" high at 100 yds and no adjustment left in the scope to bring it down! After a discussion with Leupold and optically centering the reticle with a mirror, I only had 11 clicks. I sent the scope back to Leupold and am waiting to get it back.
Once back, I will resume testing at 300 yds+.

I know your target showed the info, but it was not very clear. What load where you shooting and were there any presure signs if any.

Good thread JD. Awaiting your results. Should be textbook mushrooms I'm guessing.
