Re: BAT Action owners- question on field use

"Horns of delema. "

I wish I had your dilema!

Ahem...well..., come to think of it, I do! In talking to the head of the tactical product line at Leupold and begging unashamedly for an NF NPR1 like reticle for the Mark 4 series and 100 MOA travel in the high magnification Mark 4's, etc. (basically make a lightweight version of the NF, for crying out loud...! See, I'm really too whimpy to pack around the additional 10 oz. in the wilderness.) or I was gonna jump ship for an NF, I was given a taste of candy that I hope is for real and coming soon, but the commitments weren't particularly evident:


Mr. Denham, thank you for talking the time to give us your feedback. We are working on projects that I think you will be very happy with. We are not ready to release that information yet but it answers what you and many others just like you have been asking for.

Product line manager

We'll see...

Leupy fans--email this guy and get them pointed in the right direction.

Aww...heck...maybe I should just man up and get a NF.

I talked with Sightron and put the same bug in there ear for them to come out with a MOA reticle in there S3 model. They are planning on coming out with new reticles this winter. If others contact them as well, we can only hope they come out with a MOA version like Nightforce.

Re: BAT Action owners- question on field use

Roy,
I always enjoy reading your posts. What a sense of humor. Are you going with a bottom safety trigger with that Bat M acyion ?
Also. why is there a need for 2 sets of rings with this caliber ?
I don't see others shooting these types of guns with 4 rings on the scope.
