    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...
  9. 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!

    Hello

    Welcome from South Park How do you want to build, ground up, buy a complete rifle and add a few mods, or somewhere in between ?

    Earlier in the thread we were discussing 11.75 gas tube vs 12.06 gas tube I think I asked where the round was when the gas tube cleared the gas key answer was somewhere down range/ how much pressure was left in the gas tube answer was none. Also discussed short tube caused timing issues. Trying to understand why timing is affected if no pressure left when tube and key disconnect. Thanks Al

    So back to gas tube length... If the tube does not clear the end of the gas key until after pressure drops to relative zero with the correct length tube, as discussed earlier, does it clear the end of the key prior to relative zero pressure if it it 1/4" too short? Is that what causes the timing issue?
