I have a scope I love dearly, but it has dinged me a few times because it doesn't have enough eye relief on highest power or shooting up angle...Check these variables and you'll probably find the answer 30-338 good luck
+1 w/ 30-338. Ive been bit, as we all have at one time or another. It was with a buddys rifle and the ''old school'' Leupold(metal ring) Took a LONG time to get comphy behind a scope again. I had a ttl of 1 7/8'' (including recoil pad) added onto the back of most my Winchesters to get the proper L.O.P. And adjusted my scopes out as far as I could w/o getting any hazing or cloudieness in any of my shooting positions. Im only 5'-10'', but Ive got monkey arms and a Very long neck. When I cradle into my Rifle my L.O.P. and cheek weld look akkward to short(normal) necked folks. Still working on the cheek weld. Now that Ive seen Shawn's article I know my suspicions were correct.
P.S. Disreguard my ''stupid question'' 2 posts above, about finding a manufacturer for cheek weld.
Jmden sent me a P.M. and Ill be ordering a D.E. adjustable cheek weld very soon. D.E. has a cool web site too. No dang popups and flashing sale adds, just good, practicle, usefull, info and supplies. Way to go Shawn. Im sorry I had no idea you made them or Id have looked to D.E. the first time.
