Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

According to Nightforce, if using a 20 moa bases and medium rings .885, a 56mm will fit on a Sendero/light varmint contour, but will not fit the Palma. I would have to go up to a 1" ring!

    Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

    On sunday I went to the Remington - Bushmaster Long Range Regional Championship at Reade Range, Fallen timber, PA. I only went to observe, as I have never been to anything like that before. Competition is not my thing, however, I really enjoy the long range aspects of it. Everyone there was very nice and more than willing to answer any questions I had. I did get the opportunity to talk to and watch Bryan Litz shoot. I also had the opportunity to watch John and Dianne Hoover shoot their matching 6.5x284's! I picked up some Lapua brass from Mr. Hoover while I was there. Accuracy One Shooting Supplies - Specializing in Long Range Shooting

    I have narrowed it down to these two scopes:

    Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x50 w/MOAR Reticle
    (Top of my list, most expensive, like the moa/moa, zero stop)

    Leupold MK4 8.5-25x50 w/TMR
    (Always had good luck with Leupold, don't like the moa/mil reticle, no zero stop)

    Update:

    I was undecided about putting a brake on my 6.5 x 284. Well I pulled the pin and mailed my check to Jim See @ Center Shot Rifles. I went with the mini round muscle brake and will have it milled down to my muzzle diameter of .90.

    Did you check with jim on reducing the diameter of his brakes? I use a lot of those brakes. The way they are made there is not much room for reducing the diameter.

    Yes, he said as long as I don't go below .850 I'll be ok. The flush look is a nice finish!

    Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

    To go down to .850" the brake starts at .885". I thought you said your finish diameter is .900"

    A 1" brake will be in peices at .9"

    Nothing wrong with a nice taper.

    This is the .885 on a .705 muzzle.
