    Frist off it was realy good to see you Sunday and do some shooting. What kind of die was that you where telling be about that I need to make them 338 Lapua fit better.
    Also what was that scope you had on that Rem 40-X I think it was 5.5 to 22 power. And tell me more about those barrels to interchange on your 40-X.

    Thanks Doc.

    Yeah, I had a great time too, good to shoot with you and the guys again. Maybe next time we'll get some more of the tree trimmed off in front of the 660 yard deer target.

    It's a "body die", use it to push the shoulder back a thousanths or two. There's a picture of one in this link, you can get them seperate.

    The scope on the 40X repeater was a NightForce 5.5 x 22 (I believe it's a 56mm objective model) with the NPR2 reticle.


    For my single shot 40X I have three barrels, they can be interchanged with a barrel vice (very easy). I had Clay Spencer make up the three barrels (two in 6BR, one fast twist (8-1) and one slow twist (14-1) plus the required 308 Win barrel). I don't need to worry about the bedding or anything as the barrels are all the same contour so they fit.

    Thanks Dave it was lots of fun. I just thought the round would of gone over the trees being about 2/3 of the way down range. Maybe Rod will let us shoot the tree out of the way next time. Its always fun doing that shooting the tree till it falls. Did that a few time in the sniper classes. I'll check out the scope. Do they make it with a mildot? I'll also check out the dies. It just suck a tight fit. I did not know they made a body die for doing that.

    Thanks LeMay OUT

    Doc on the NP-R2 reticle. is it 2 MOA at all the power settings on the scope. Like 2 MOA at 5.5 and I move the power up to 22 and its still 2 MOA at this setting?

    Thanks LeMay OUT

    Let your planes be dark ar inpenetratable as night, and when you move, fall like a thunder bolt.

    Either on 15 power on the 3.5-15 or 22 power on the rest.
