Re: How heavy can we go in the .308 Win?

I have the book, I was thinking of that setup when posting [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Those 3-4" tall mounts need an awfull tall cheek piece. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] If they shortened the barrel to 10-15" they could probably get a little more comfortable, but of course 2000 yards might be the limit then.

Mr. Artus definitely gives new meaning to the phrases "lobbing them in" and "fire for affect!" [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Brent, good to find out you're a "reader" too. I can't read enough of this stuff!

MM, you need to get a copy of that book! No rangefinding reticles here, as the target would be out of the sight picture even with meager 20 moa bases.

Too bad I don't have any decent long range shooting areas around here(guess I have to go to Nashville to see FatBoy).

Re: How heavy can we go in the .308 Win?

Thanks for all your responses Brent, MM, and Gary. Sounds like I need to buy a box of 500, 175gr. Matchkings. Guess the Bergers will sit there until I get a 30 Super Thumper(no need to waste them). [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Brent, the tapered bases are obviously tapered!!! [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img] My Baer/Lightforce 20moa tapered bases have nothing on his 5 degree tapered bases!!! If you ask Mrs. Claus for the book titled "Precision Shooting at 1000 yards" for Christmas there is a three part article on Mr. Artus and his setup. It's very cool!!! [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
