    Do you use Vortex scopes on other rifles? how do they compare to the other big name scopes (clarity, tracking, function of A/O and positive turent click)

    Thanks for the video......love that build on a Winchesteer WSSM receiver! now I have ideas for my 25WSSM when it's rebuild time.

    6.5x61Super on a WSSM action:
    Did you remove the ejector due to the small receiver opening? or do you extract the bolt to remove the spent case.

    Vortex Glass on all of my centerfires, I had a Nightforce BR 8-32x56mm on my 6.5x61Super, very nice, however the 1/8MOA clicks was way TOO MUCH when I shoot tactical course or take long shots on groundhogs!!

    The Vortex Glass is very comparable albeit at a better price = $500 buys a lot of bullets, powder, and primers!!


    ON empty brass I can eject as normal, the brass clears the ejection port no issues. Kind of amazing when you think I have a LONG ACTION cartridge in a super short action..The BENEFIT = the super short action of the WSSM is VERY VERY STIFF = accurate


    My gunsmith helped collaborate on the 6.5x61Super build, I had Dave Kiff at PTG make me a custom 6.5x61Super reamer....if you are interested, I'll PM my gunsmith's name to you.

    The rifle flat out shoots 1/4MOA out to 1,200 yards

    Why did you get rid of the 6.5x61 super? What gun smith did you used?
