    I sent my 300 RUM to GA Precision to have the scope mount holes opened to the larger 8-40 size for the strength factor and to hopefully get them straight to the bore. The factory holes were off requiring the scopes windage adjustment to be way off to one side to be zeroed, or to use the weaker Redfield windage adjustable mounts that I had been using. I wanted to put a Nightforce scope on the rifle and needed a strong mount system. From a previous post here on LRH I remember Chris Matthews saying LRH members would get a special price on Badger mounts and rings so I checked with him and he said they could take care of it. I got the rifle back with a Badger rail installed and a set of rings. I put the scope on after centering all the turrets and I only had to turn the windage turret 2 clicks to be zeroed at 100yds. I know this is a long post but I just want to say thank you to GA Precision for the excellent job they did. I also had a Badger Tactical bolt knob installed and man what a difference it makes, I love it.

    Two clicks! They must have been having a bad day - usually only one click [​IMG]
    Looking forward to seeing the GA and Badger guys this week.

    Magmaniac,

    I notice that you're from Huntsville. I grew up there and my parents still live there. My dad's looking for a range to shoot rifles at (around 300+ yards or so) but doesn't know of anywhere. A friend told me that there's a public range out near Decatur, is this the closest one to SE HSV? I would've sent you a private message, but it said that this forum doesn't allow it, sorry guys [​IMG]. Thanks in advance for any advice you could give me.

    John
