    What power scope is ideal?

    Thanks for the input. I ended up ordering the 4-20. Hopefully it will work out well for what I want.

    What power scope is ideal?

    The nice thing with a FFP scope is that you can crank it down and still have your reticle sub tensions stay the same for hold-offs. I wonder if the glass is the same in two scopes one 4-20 and one 5-25, which would be clearer set at 20 power the 4-20 or 5-25? Does it make a difference? It...

    What power scope is ideal?

    I am getting more interested in long range shooting and hunting. I love the idea of putting together the components (rifle, optic, loads, etc.) and putting in the time at the range to become proficient at longer range hunting / shooting. Most of my "local" long range hunting will be limited to...

    Thoughts on Burris Xtreme tactical sig. 34mm Rings?

    I just ordered a Burris XTR II 4-20 scope and now I need rings. I use Burris signature zee rings on all of my other scopes and have had good luck with them. I see that Burris added a Xtreme Tactical Signature ring line. Does anyone have thoughts on them? I see they are aluminum which...

    Vortex PST first or second focal point for hunting

    Thanks for the responses so far. I am glad to see that I am not the only one who's eyes are not what they used to be. Getting older sucks. I am not worried about seeing the hash marks at the lower power, just the crosshair. I really could go either way and make it work. There are pro's and...

    Vortex PST first or second focal point for hunting

    I have read many posts on the pluses and minuses of both and I clearly understand the differences. I currently own 2 FFP Vortex PST's. One a 4-16 with EBR-1 MOA reticle and a 6-24 PST with EBR-2C MOA reticle and I like both scopes a lot. My only challenge with them is that when hunting I...

    Long Range Magazine any opinions?

    I noticed that on the store site for Long Range Pursuit they advertise a magazine called Long Range. Does anyone get this and if so what do you think of the publication?

    Reticle for Vortex 6-24 PST help

    So I can see that the "clicks" would be a little more precise in MOA vs. Mil .265" vs. .36". As far as using the reticle for aiming, which I will probably do more than dialing, the Mil would be 1.8" per tick mark vs. 2.1" per tick on the MOA right? So with the Mil it would be 9" at 500 yards...

    Reticle for Vortex 6-24 PST help

    I am trying to decide on either the EBR-2C MOA or 2C MRAD reticle for a Vortex PST 6-24 in FFP that I am going to order. I already have a 4-16 PST with a EBR 1MOA reticle. I like it but it seems many are going to the mil reticle and mil clicks? The rest of my scopes are various brands with...

    Load for 215 Berbers in 300 win mag

    Thanks guys. I will start building loads today and hopefully start shooting groups tomorrow. I prepped and primed my Norma brass last weekend so I should be good to go after a little barrel break-in. I will start at 73 grains. If you have any other load recommendations please share.

    Load for 215 Berbers in 300 win mag

    I noticed spellcheck called them Berbers instead of Bergers? That's embarrassing.

    Load for 215 Berbers in 300 win mag

    Re: Load for 215 Bergers in 300 win mag I will be lucky to seat it anywhere close to the lands and still get it to fit the magazine the way it is looking.

    Load for 215 Berbers in 300 win mag

    I am a little confused on powder load ranges. I look at my load manuals and it does not list these bullets because they are so new. So I look at the next heaver bullet range and it shows higher powder ranges than I have seen elsewhere that are showing pressure signs. I have H1000 and it kind...

    Hornady 300 win brass ok?

    It seems to be about all I can find. Will I be ok with it loading 215 hybrids?
