    Month and a half or so not too bad wasn't expecting miracles. Took about the same or more for the Leupold I sent back, busy time of year. Probably won't get back to the range till next year, hunting season, vacation, holidays. Have to have a little patience, but definitely taking all the rifles out while its still cold to get some chronograph data in winter temps. The Strelok Pro lets you enter several temp/velocity pairs for ea round, uses it for fine tuning the dope table based on current conditions. Think I can do that with the BDX stuff also.

    Not only no FFL required, but new rifle didn't even come with signature required. Sitting on front porch when I got home yesterday. Brand new lower and complete upper, including barrel and newer design floating handguard (longer barrel nut and more clamping surface, 3 screws instead of 2). Still a DPMS based recoil, however before I replaced it with the longer tube out of curiosity I pulled the spring, dropped the buffer and BCG back into the tube, and clearance looked good, wasn't ramming into the ears anyway like last one. Got to say, Anderson making every effort to make good. 12.06 gas tube looks to be positioned correctly. Completely disassembled and mostly back together last night, still need to fit the Aero bolt catch, put the M4-72 brake on (How to get the old locktight out of the threads?) , mount the new Sig Sauer BDX scope and a few rail accessories.

    And now for something completely different...

    the Barnes X claimes a BC of .432 but if I use the 0, 20, and 80 yard average from the Labradar and the 100-200 yard drop I get a bit less, so I used that number in the ballistic calculator. Need to do some further testing at longer range to confirm. Then all I need is a lot of luck, and a cooperative critter...

    Under 8 inches correction at 300 yards, point blank on elk sized critters

    Not sure if there is a autoloading sporter shooting a heavier caliber.

    They shoot clean, Browning spent a good bit of their design budget on making a gas system 1000% trouble free.

    Elk gun. After all the autos we picked up a Sharps today, shooting consistent 9 rings and clipping the bull at 100 yards, (until our shoulders turned black and blue) better then the group next to us with scoped black guns at the 50 yard berm. Never shot a set trigger before, you're about halfway through thinking about squeezing and the bullet has left the barrel...

    Like having a spotting scope right on the rifle. What can I say, my eyes ain't what they use to be. We have a similar weight scope/ mount / rings on a 300 Weatherby Mag been holding zero for 70-80 rounds so I am optimistic this will work out. Not like you would want to shoot 100 rounds a week out of one of these anyway...
  13. New optics on my (B)AR, not a 308 and not an AR. BUT, cool rifle nonetheless. 338 Win Mag / Viper 6-24 x 50 HS-T Alignment and lapping the new rings Found a set of mounts with an offset rear, perfect fit for the Vortex Medium ring height Off to the range this weekend. Should be an upgrade from the Leupold VXII 3-9 x 40 Kevin Knight's brake job. Lots of practice makes perfect!
