Re: Long Range Base/Ring Combo

Thanks Chas1. Yes, she shoots pretty good but fouls quicker than I like. I have to clean it after 20-25 shots down the factory tube.
Here's a target I shot about a week ago (during deer season) to verify my zero on my .300WinMag (top 5shot group) and 7mmRemMag (bottom 5shot group).

Looks like there's no complaining about that 300WM group either. I'm assuming you intentionally aimed high so as to not mix up shot groups. I do that too.

Re: Long Range Base/Ring Combo

It does shoot good. I usually have my big game rifle(s) set 3-3.25" high at 100yds. According to testing that I have done and JBM this is spot on for a 300yd zero.
I put two red dots on the target, these are my point of aim (POA). Doing it this way saves me a little walking and lets me verify the zeros of more than one rifle. I can concentrate on the POA and let the bullets land where they will and this way they don't mess up my aiming point. When my non-shooting friends or work buddies see my shot groups they never say nice groups, they always ask where was I aiming and then invariable say "you missed". I just give them a look that I hope they know means "I refuse to have a Battle of the Minds with an unarmed man". JohnnyK.
