For the money in SFP, the Sightron S-III 6-24 or 8-32 with the MOA reticle or in FFP the Vortex HS Viper 6-24 with XLR reticle, requesting that the 1/2 minute elev turret be converted to a 1/4 MOA turret.
Right now the area I have permission to hunt is mostly woods, I have a stand in one field where I can reach out to 436m. So my shots range from 2 yards to 400 plus, I think I am going to get the Burris scope you mentioned for me in another thread. I used my 4-14 hours last season and I just was not fast enough, it was not the scope alone, it was the scope combined with that awesome trigger/stock that comes on the savage striker. So I will most likely do the stock and trigger first.

Re: A couple hours of effort

You are liking that trigger, huh?
Keep me updated.
Aaron does not plan to make a Striker stock to my knowledge.
Are you going to go to a rear grip so you can get a better trigger?

YES OH YES. I messed and messed with that linkage, including welding it up and re cutting parts of it. Its just a lost cause, also the way the pistol balances with the current set up does not provide good balance for a clean trigger pull.

Re: A couple hours of effort

Understood.
I have owned two Strikers (Both 243's) and sold both.
If I went with Savage, I would go with their single-shot target action.
So, you are going to a rear-grip for your Striker?

Yes from Joel when I have some extra cash, might have him pillar bed it as well.

Re: A couple hours of effort

I chronographed the Gunwerks ammo on late Friday afternoon.
Right at 2850 fps.



I shot this 5-shot group at 100 yards after engaging two targets from 400-1100 yards, in increments of 100 yards in a local LR match.
We could take up to two shots per target.
Everything was under time requirements.

Targets at each distance were 1MOA and 1/2 MOA, so of course, the target sizes varied.
You got more points if you hit the target the first time.

The man who put on the match on his own private range took 1st on this portion and I came in second using the 7 LRM.
This all was done with Gunwerks ammo-No tweaking by me! I just chronographed the load last night night and had not had a opportunity to confirm drops.
Between me confirming my zero, chronographing the load, shooting the match and letting some guys shoot the 7LRM for fun (Never had shot a SP before), I had over 50 rounds through this barrel since the last cleaning.
I am very pleased with the chambering (Gunwerks) and accuracy of this barrel (Krieger) and with the manufactured ammo produced by Gunwerks.

Re: A couple hours of effort

Meant to add, in talking with Aaron Davidson (Gunwerks) he told me he wants at least 1/2" groups at 100 yards with their ammo and rifle.
I forgot at the moment, whether this was a 3-shot group or a 5-shot group, since they make LR hunting rigs, not comp rigs.
Scope is a Sightron S-III 6-24 with MOA reticle.
