Re: Opinions on my long range rifle

Allout: I've owned that exact gun and pretty much the same setup with a badger 20moa base and even the viper hs. Work up some 155 scenars to about 3000fps and you can get there every time. Trust me. That load will knock a white tail on his ass at 600 and a properly place shot will stone cold him at 900.

For rings and bases at an economical price, check out the Burris Signature Rings and bases.
I understand that a shorter barrel equates to lower velocities but also is easier for manueverability and I don't feel the velocity loss can out way that extra manueverability. Until I run some velocity tests and see what this barrel will produce velocity wise I'll make the trade off for now.

Have you used the UTG's and found them to be inferior?

Thanks for your input, if I can knock down some whitetails at thise ranges I will be very happy.

I have no particular opinion on the UTG's really. It just sounded from your initial description that the basis for your decision was driven by economic factors. So I offered you an alternative, that I have used and do use on all my rifles...Burris Signature Rings and bases.

So have you gotten the Vortex Viper HS LR 4-16x50 scope yet?

If so, what do you think of it?
