    Great numbers! Beautiful rifle!

    I was looking at a 6.5-284. I may have to change direction here. :rolleyes:

    Thanks for posting.

    Thats a pretty darn nice rig. I dont think that a light/compact rifle can get any sweeter! I love the 2.5-10. Im starting to lean towards less magnifacation and a smaller package too.

    I think the rifle and scope are a perfect combo.

    I have ran the 2.5-10x32 for a lot of years now on another rifle. No troubles shooting out to 1000 or past with them.

    This package is going to be my do everything hunting rifle... Do some major testing this fall ! :)

    How do you fill you 2.5 X 10 NF does at low light? I have been thinking of trying one on my 7 mag that I am building. Were I hunt every year the deer are in the fields at very first light and very last light. Did not know how the small objective did at these times.

    The rifle weighs right at 9 lbs minus bipod.

    I really like the NF compact. I have used one for hunting coyotes, deer, antelope, etc for years now. Never had a problem any time of day using it. Would highly recommend one !

    In fact, the MOAR reticle compact is coming out very soon and I have my name on one of those !!

    Love that rifle and caliber! I read thru the entire thread over on SH.
    Wish I could have GAP build me one as well. They really know what they are doing.
    Good luck with it this season!

    10 shot Target with H1000 and 140 Amaxes @ 3140 FPS. Found good seating depth and load.

    the Magnetospeed V1 is one slick unit !

    Awesome! Was the 10 shot group with the MagnetoSpeed strapped on the barrel or not? Really nice rig.
