Nothing fancy, same Rem 700 in .308 that I've been shooting for 14 years. A few barrels and one new stock later anyway... Went out to the range this morning. After a little warmup on the 300 yard range, I dialed in 23 MOA of elevation & 2 MOA left windage. Went prone with the sling looped around my upper arm, held hard and cut loose. Sure is satisfying to hear the distant clang when the bullet strikes the gong out there a bit beyond 800 yards. Very satisfying...


Camera zoomed in on the gong:


The Green Machine .308, still at it after all these years:

Anytime Joel. Let me know when you're headed to the Left Coast.

I live about 15-20 minutes from this gun club.

Guy, 308 it's a great cartridge. I've got one in an M1A-man can it shoot. Very nice shooting and a nice looking rig.

Nice shooting. It is hard to beat the 308 for just an all around good cartridge.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
