I'm up here about 200 miles from you on the sunrise side. I Could probably turn you a muzzle break. You have to remind me though. My memory is as long as...what was I saying? Give me a shout.Ok so every year I do a semi custom rifle to the best of my ability, nothing fancy. Once done I donate it to the local SCI Purple Heart program. This program uses 100 percent of the proceeds to send as many Purple Heart recipient hunters to a great hunt at legands ranch in bitely Michigan. The ranch does a whole week dedicated to these hunters and it’s a fantastic cause put on by great people. So I decide to get involved. I’ve done a few bolt action rifle and the last 3 years I’ve done AR 15’s in calibers that are popular at the time like 300blk and Grendel. They sell tickets for several months for $10 each. Then draw a ticket at the banquet.
This year I’m thinking of stepping it up a bit. Keep in mind it needs to make money and more than it cost to build as I don’t wanna waste my time when I could just donate the money.
So this year I’m thinking of doing a full shooting system. So I’m starting with a 350 legand because we are in Michigan and the 450 is the newest craze so I think the legand will also be hot.
It will be a Ruger American ranch, Boyd’s has come on board already with a thumbhole stock. Vortex has been donating scopes and mounts for several years so I’m hoping they continue. So once it’s bedded in it new stock scope mounted. I’m gonna brake it in with factory ammo, chronograph and get custom turrets made. I’d also like to hopefully supply a range finder. M I think with the hunters around here it would be a big hit. Any thing else you think might make it sell better?
What’s your thoughts?
I would like to thank you for what you are doing and thank you to all the members that have afforded to help. Unlike you guys I have no talent but I do have a couple bucks to buy some tickets with. Could you start a thread about the tickets when the time comes up to start selling them. Hope I am not out of line and apologize in advance if I am. Have a great night everyone
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
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
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
