    Anyone got one? or Used one? From what I can tell they are to be admired among the best.

    Range in Yard or Meters to 2500 meters / 2750 yards.

    The smallest Beam devergence I have seen. It is .3 x 1.5 mrad. So if I converted it correctly (please feel free to check my math) that is about 1 ft. x 4 1/2 ft. at 1000 yards. I really really LIKE this!!

    Thoughts??

    i remember reading about them a while back and from what i could gather, they are a Lieca on steroids. they seem to be a considerable step up from the Swaro.

    Oh my!! I been playing with one today. Ranged my 20" sq steel target in bright sun to a mile. Rocks in the sun to 2650 yards. So I went looking for antelope. Found a few in dead flat pasture, bright sun, closest one was 1259 yds and the farthest was 1354. Another group was closer but I watched as one walked behind another, close one at 1083 the one hehind was 1089. This is one bad mammerjammer !!

    Im mustering up the courage to buy a PRLF10.....Im sure as soon as I work up long range loads for my new snipe tac, I will be wishing I ordered this thing 4 weeks ago.

    Did you get yours new or used and what was the lead time, who'd you get it from, and what price????

    thanks in advance

    Jeff,

    That is good to hear!!! and from a trusted source, too!!

    I have that 375 AM coming soon(I hope, I hope I hope!!!) and will see which vehicle I'll sell to fund the vectronix.:) I think I screwed up by getting only a 20 MOA rail.:rolleyes:
    Also, it indicates that a Wild won't be necessary.

    zman,

    What's the anticipated build time on your thumper?

    Roy, ever tried to range a black cow?? Its tough. This morning with full sun behind me I ranged one at over a mile. It was all cow baby on flat ground.. left, right, or up was a no read. I am having a ball with this thing. I set two sand bags on the truck hood and plop it on top them. It has crosshairs so it is like shooting a rifle.. to bad it doesn't have a Jewel on it...:D

    Yea, I can't range a cow with my Leica 1200 on a regular basis over 600 yards or so. It seems pretty selective as to the color of the cow.:rolleyes:

    Got a report that the 375 should be completed next month. If its more towards the middle of the month my trip is still on. If later than that I'm in trouble. Have a gig starting out of state on the 2nd of sept which will throw a wrench into the whole thing.

    Roy,
    All of my parts will be here by the end of next week..I got so focused on the gun I forgot the dies and brass, so Dave Viers is working on this as we speak so he can ship it before he leaves for vacation.

    Here are the lead times for my parts.....

    BAT action got extened another two months, so i canceled the BAT and Lawton Machine will be sending me a Lawton 8000 next week. And a 40 moa rail (don't forget to go with a 40 moa rail).

    Manners T2, 90% carbon fiber 12 week lead time...We went a few weeks over cause we had issues getting demension data to Manners from BAT, but with the Lawton changer over, this was solved as Tom Manners has inletted several Lawtons in the past. By the way, the stock should weigh in at 2.3 pounds (really light)

    Brux barrel...1-10 twist...32 inch...about the same lead time as the Manners stock. The barrel has an interuppted flute and is 1.345 at breach and palma taper to .920 at the muzzle. It wieghs in at 6.5 pounds.

    I would say that with your choice of actions you should be able to get an action in less than 3 months if you pick and choose.

    The stock and the barrel should not be more than 12 weeks, so you should be able to pull all parts in this time frame.

    My reamers and "go gage" were only 6 weeks and I have had that for sometime.

    Now we only have assembly time. So If I can't get this gun on the range by the first week in Aug,,,something is wrong.

    By the way if you go with a snipe tac...I will have reamers and go gage for sale...should be good for a few more guns...you can use it and sell it again..

    hope that helps
