Re: First long range gun! .300RUM

I suggest getting a different scope base, something like a Ken Farrel or Badger Ordnance. I have now seen 2 sets of rear rings for that type of mount go bad. I recently changed mine and now my brothers are distorting as well. I would hate for you to go through the frustration I went through when mine went bad.

Re: First long range gun! .300RUM

I think we may have exact twins now. My cousin had a used Leupold Vari-X III 6.5-20x40AO he sold to me for $300 and I really couldn't pass up the deal. I mounted the scope up, and stole a 1.5lb Rifle Basix trigger out of my 06. This gun should be ready for the range. I am taking it out today and have about 50 rounds loaded for it. Right now I am just doing load development at 100 and 200 so the bases and scope should suffice for now [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img] Here is an updated pic.
