    Got my Score High 280 AI in on Friday! Rifle: Manner T4A, Bartlein M24 5r 1:9 26" barrel, Timney trigger, holland recoil lug, badger bolt knob, throated for Berger VLD's. Optics: Vortex Razor 5-20 NF Scope base, Seekins precision matched rings. Bipod: Atlas.

    Did an OCW test for the first time, and had GREAT success. Running 60.1gr H4831sc w/ 168gr Berger VLD Hunting(s), just kissing the lands (COAL 3.469) in Nosler 280 AI brass w/ CCI 200's.

    Rifle shoots 1/8-1/4 MOA groups when I do my part, my general ability limits it to 1/2 MOA or just under, most commonly. Every single group was a clover leaf patten, as you will see, regardless of distance or size of group.

    Pics to follow, have to upload one per post, my phone won't let me upload a bunch on the same post and for some reason a lot of the pics are uploading turn 90 or 180 degrees. Idk why.

    Another .4 MOA group at 200. This is a different size orange circle than the pic just above this, to be clear.

    I love it. Reticle stays in focus through just about anything, returns to a perfect zero every time, zero stop is the best I've used, super bright colors aren't washed out.. The whole works. Snipers hide did a review of it I think. If I recall, they claimed it wa dropped from a 17 foot building into some grass and returned to zero, no prob. They also did a test with explosive concussion and it returned to zero. Great purchase, definitely recommend one.
