I've got a 2.5-20 F1 on a 20" 30N in a XLR chassis. Hunting rig, nice and compactHSmithTX,
I do love to barter. Always seems like charity with the guy in question, but (that means everything I said before but doesn't mean squat) we always help each other out.
I don't mind the figure in the least. Something about a thick calf shank has always turned me on. I'm all too well aware of better glass; I have some of it; range buddies, some with more into the sport/ addiction than I have in all my worldly possessions, that let me drive 10k+ rigs with glass I can't justify for my uses.
I do love shooting the 308 for long range stuff. Have to work for it, but so many before me already did all the hard work before me. My buddy in respect, has more full safes than I have guns; with all his toys I don't think I've ever seen him on a range without a .308, usually his old 40x that's seen more barrels than I have seen kitty cats (VHS, DVDs, & internet excluded). Looking forward to all the glass time I want behind a tremor3, I think it'll be awesome small game hunting prarie dogs, coyotes & hogs. Z
What do you have them on & what are you shooting at? I've only had the nx8 on paper & steel. Z
A 4-32 F1 on a 7 saum, again, hunting rig although it's quickly come my favorite range gun for punching paper
4-32 F1 on my 338 LM improved, another hunting rig.
I've got between 140-200 rounds down each of these and find the tracking and repeatability to be true. I don't have anything "higher" up the food chain so to speak to compare glass to, but these have been great for me.
Hope that helps.
