I think you can save a ton of money by going with this : https://www.leupold.com/product-series/vx-3i-lrp-rifle-scope

and then use the rest of the money for a kestral wind meter with applied ballistics, and a sig sauer laser. Not to mention ammo.


and if you're going this route, you're going to want to reload as well. Probs 5 thou off the lands, lapua brass, berger hunting vld with the hybrid OGIVE. Not sure on power or primer though.

So I installed a Vortex Viper PST to a Spuhr mount onto a Nightforce rail, and I almost completely max out windage just to zero.

Double checked torques on everything, dismounted/remounted scope multiple times, same issue.

Is this an optic issue? How do I fix? I find it hard to believe a Spuhr mount or Nightforce rail would be out of spec?

It's driving me fucking nuts

I have a request for the copy paste.
I know the jbm ballistic calc has been a standard for a long time and makes good field cardsa request but it could be good to add hornady's ballistic calc (advanced features on) and 4dof calc to the ballistic chart section because they add more detail and can help someone see what exactly their bullet is doing with velocity, energy, moa at the same time as mil and inch drop, and theyre pretty easy to use.
Like:

Ballistic calc and chart.
>http://www.jbmballistics.com/cgi-bin/jbmtraj-5.1.cgi
(old time standard and will be forever)
>https://www.hornady.com/team-hornady/ballistic-calculators/#!/
(good layout shows more other relevant information but easy to read and especially useful if hunter with energy values)
>https://www.hornady.com/team-hornady/ballistic-calculators/#!/4dof
(detailed and extremely precise if you can learn to use, especially if you have one of the listed bullets)

If you guys havent tried these out you should at least once. They were really well thought out and pretty much all I use now.
Ive found myself using the non-4dof calc a lot just to quickly compare loads, even on non-precision calibers (just to have an idea of what theyll do) a lot and really appreciate everything being there at once while being easy to read.
>>
>>41459275
That is physical alignment of the mounts being off.
What rifle?
If you say Remington, the mount holes in the receiver very well could me misaligned.
A proper receiver truing and blueprint will drill the holes oversize and align them to the receiver centerline in the process.
Commonly necessary on a factory Remington.
Older Leupold mounts had the windage screw for gross windage adjustments to get close to centered.
Burris has the Posalign inserts for mechanical alignment adjustments.
Run your windage fully through its travel and center it and try to measure on paper it is off at 50 or 100 yards, even 25 yards will work. Trying to get the huge error out first.
Then move back and fine dial it in.
>>
>>41460269
hm. the ones I tried (different friends both own one of each) were about on par imo, and both reasonably accurate.

but anyway, both are still a bit on the expensive side, I was thinking more of a howa 1500 or rem700 for babbies first precision bolter. or maybe I'll go full dick and get a 16" mossy mvp with a humongous muzzle brake to piss of my local fudds

>>41460927
also, magazine feeding that big of a cartridge with long bullets probably wont be an option.

>>41460870
30-378 weatherby seems a bit dumb to me. It's only a hair higher velocity than the 300 RUM, but it's known to be much harder on the throat.

>>41457746

I'm new to the precision rifle scene and will likely get a Savage 110 in 6.5 CM. Could anyone recommend muzzle brakes and glass for 1000yd + shots?

Primary use is long range target shooting but I would like to take this rifle hunting every now and then
>>
>>41461058

Whats your budget? Precision glass starts at 300$ and can hit 2k easily.
>>
>>41461062
Thinking the $300 to $600-ish price range. I've heard that glass should cost as much as the gun but not sure if that's just a meme
>>
>>41461049
Just to throw an example out, Ive got ~0.015" clearance on my 300wm and thats just using a berger 215gr but I did use a longer than normal reamer. I started load developing on a 225 eldm a while back and got distracted but Im pretty sure it's going to be a single feeder.

7rm, with the right bullet/twist/reamer, currently seems like peak performance in a magnum action while respecting costs of brass and barrel. Youre going to out range what a lot of people put in their 338s XL actions and 30s and most eldms have a good kill record on game if you can keep the impact below ~2850 fps area. 195gr Berger 7mm could be another option.
>>
>>41461049
what bullet/velocity do you use now?
>>
>>41461058
>>41461111
different anon, it's been awhile since I looked for good entry stuff, I dont know if it's dated advice with what you can get for the money now but the SWFA fixed powers are cheap and offer reliable tracking, good reticle, exceptional durability, and fine glass. I didnt trust a brand I hadnt heard the name for a long time but I found out they still make the same optics that were used in the military so gave them a go on a plinking rifle I had laying around. Outstanding optic for the price and my only complaint is the small lens doesnt pick up light as well as my nicer, larger lens optics but theyre great for what you pay for. Their 3-15 unfortunately has the same lens size but might be worth a go if you want the variable part.
>>
>>41460936
>laughs in nib K624i for 2000
>>
>>41461111

Im a huge fan of swfa, those are all I have on my guns. Eventually I'll upgrade, but for now theyre perfect. I only shoot 200 yards at max, im a group chaser not a long steel donger.
>>
I'm looking at a Sako A7 in .308 at the moment, and I am quite temped. However, I've also been saving up for a tikka t3x and now I am in doubt which one I should go for.
Any suggestions?
>>
>>41461503

I dont want to be that guy, but its gonna happen, why 308?
>>
>>41461503
Out of the box the Sako might be slightly better.
However there are more aftermarket options for Tikka.
>>
Is the Zeiss Conquest HD5 5-25X50 scope worth buying? It seems good to go despite being the budget product line for Zeiss.
>>
>>41461522
Because the dealer only has it in .308 at the moment, and because in my country it is the cheapest all-round caliber.

>>41461527
>more aftermarket options
Can you elaborate?
>>
>>41457746
$3K for a NIB 5-25X PMII is a great deal. That’s what I paid for mine about a year ago and mine came with the scope caps and S&B cleaning kit. I think S&B lowered the MSRP on their legacy models to make them more competitive with NF and Vortex because I’m seeing them come up NIB for between 2.7-3K every now and then depending on the reticle.

I didn't see anything in the OP about this, though I would guess it is a common question:

What is a good rifle to start with if you want to git gud at precision shooting? (Budget: $1k, maybe $1.5k including optics.) I don't want to burn a ton of money as a beginner and have people at the range laugh at me. I want to buy something sturdy and practice my way up, then buy something high-end once I'm better.
>>
>>41461938
group shooting, competition styles, casual paper punching just to see how far you can do it, hunting, or shtf larping? Also, how long of range do you have access to?
Most of these can be answered with >>41461058
This rifle in 6.5cm or 308, an swfa fixed 12x, and a harris (s-brm I think it was but double check) or magpul bipod. Do not cheap out on rings. Also, get into handloading and at least get something to address run out.
>>
>>41457746
I have a Swaro Z8i 2.3-18x56, and I’d highly recommend it. Slightly more than $3k but it’s well worth it IMO.
>>
>>41462031

Thanks for the suggestion; I will look into whether local dealers have the Savage 110 in stock. Mostly casual paper punching with the aim of practicing longer and longer distances until I can take shots from very far away. I can get access to basically unlimited distances in the wild, but probably just like 250 yards on a range.

I might hunt in the future as well, but then I'll need a scope that goes down to like 3x, right? I read that with higher zooms you can miss your surroundings and just see the fur of the animal, especially if it is moving. I can always start out with something cheap first and then buy real optics later on.

>I might hunt in the future as well
then make sure you distinguish between how well you can group shoot or walk bullets in versus how far you can make a first round, cold bore hit everytime. The distance will be shorter.
>then I'll need a scope that goes down to like 3x, right
Yes and no, strong opinions on both sides of this.
In my opinion, if you already practiced in shouldering your rifles aiming through an optic and find yourself naturally close on target then 12x is fine even at 10-20 yards and I personally dont shoot at running targets. I feel like Id even be fine with 20x on some of my optics with greater field of view. Youre going to be slower though. When theyre built with long range in mind you have to start playing with the parallax settings between shooting different ranges and learn to do it fast.
If youre not a western hunter, then youre probably hunting denser brushy areas and should get a different rifle thats a bit quicker.

Also, before buying the rifle, learn to use a ballistic calculator and make sure youre still interested. I lose a lot of people here and a set up is no good without a knowing how to use these.
>>
>>41462135
its a bad choice as a first serious rifle caliber unless you know how to build them for modern loads, handload, and can afford to feed desu.

you could have done worse and at least you handload. Post your load and optic and Ill do more.

Never looked into precision shooting so have some basic questions
What is the learning curve like? Example if you had a rifle mechanically capable how long does it take to hit a man sized target at 1000 yards consistently?
Is the adage of spending more on the optic than the rifle true?
>>
>>41463417
wood or plastic stock?
>>41463503
swfa is all I know of that still does.
>>
>>41463616
>What is the learning curve like?
In your example, not long, 10 minutes on a calm day maybe if you have proper form and dont mind walking shots in with a spotter
>Is the adage of spending more on the optic than the rifle true
It is if you want to get more of the performance your rifle has to offer but you can "make do" within reason depending on how much money youre talking about
>>
>>41460359

It's a Bergara base rifle, I can't imagine the receiver holes being off?
>>
>>41463619
It's wood, I'm talking like a 70s Remington.
>>
>>41460962

It's impossible to mount a spuhr mount backwards, the bubble level always has to be at the rear, so no
>>
>>41463619
SWFA?
>>
>>41461595
I don't know of any aftermarket stock or trigger options for the A7.
>>
>>41463689
if the barrel is good and youre willing to put some work in then itll be great. A lot of people start on old rem700s and the troubleshooting can help you down the road.
If it stays in the wood
>free float
>pillar bed
>bed action and knox
otherwise, Id suggest an aluminum bedding block stock but you should still bed and make sure it's floated. They start around $300.
It might already shoot well enough for vitals but it's fun to see how good you can make it. At the very least make sure it's floated and the screws have even tension.
Your limiting factor/what will make it hard is probably going to be optic and load. You want something with a ranging reticle (NOT BDC) and good tracking which typically arent cheap aside from swfa (but theyre ugly imo). You want a precise load with temperature stable powder and small extreme speed spreads between shots but it wont hurt you so bad at just 500 yards.
>>
>>41463777
swfa is a company that sells good fixed optics and just happens not to cost much for the quality they give
>>
>>41463825
Their 3-15 and 5-20 are great too. For the cost they punch over their weight
>>
>>41463988
Honest to god truth I'd never buy a variable SWFA. I would drown in their 10x42s all day errday tho.
>>
>>41463503
SWFA makes a excellent fixed mag optic for the price. A SS 10x42mm with mil reticle, mil turrets and side adjusting parallax will run you $400 NIB, and they have excellent resell value when you decide to upgrade. Don't cheap out on scope rings.
>>
>>41459426
ok
>>41460931
I've got one on a Ar10. Was looking at the 4-12 DB Tactical for a AR build.

I don't get why the 4-12 has rotation indicators and the 4-16 does. Get it together Vortex.
>>
>>41463616
Hitting man sized targets isn't that hard from prone on a calm day. You'll be fucked without a spotter, if you arent experienced though trying.

Companies, like vortex, and Nightforce, have upended the optics world. So a PRS winning rifle from wade stuteville costs like 4.5k, and a NF ATACR 7-35 F1 which is the most used PRS scope, costs like 3.5k so no you shouldn't. You should spend more on your rifle than your optic in absolutes.

But if you really want to get into long range or precision shooting, something like a vortex viper PST gen 2 will be sort of the minimum. There are a few other goods one in that price range, from like Nikon, or Athlon. Leupold is all american made means, it cant really compete on price with budget optics, but once you can afford, like vx5HD or better they are awesome as well. NF, and Kahles are sorta king right now. If your looking at more tactical scopes, the Sig Tango6 is good, and Schmidt and Bender of course.
>>
Do dangerous game rifle scopes need to be built to a different standard to handle the recoil of those rounds or will any good 1-6 do?
>>
>>41465898
depends on the manufacturer, Leupold tests all its optics on the same machine, the designed to simulate the worst recoild possible. So if you go with them you are fine. You will need to research other brands. Ignore the can handle 50BMG. 50BMG, has a less damaging recoil than putting a optic on a 9mm handgun. 357H&H has the worst recoil.

What exactly is your goal? To have cool gear or badass high power long range rifle. If it's the second, and you're familiar with bolt action, you should look into early 60s hunting rifles. They're usually really well made, don't cost a fortune, are super accurate and the only thing is, they're not tacticool 2019. But for my money, today, tacticool bolt is hands down a Ruger gunsite scout.
>>
>>41464685

I have the 3-15x SWFA, it's a nice optic, about what you'd expect for the price. Certainly not as much value as the fixed. I'll also say I bought it back around 2011 when there were way less options for serviceable, budget friendly FFP optics. These days there's a lot more competition so the SWFA variables can't hang as much.
>>
>>41463417
Yes 3006 does 500 yards with a good old Remington but like forty inches of drop. At range, the energy of the projectiles really determines effectiveness. Good idea to research ballistics charts. Bullet drop is consistent with gravity, and many small arms calibers top out around 3000 fps. Bullet diameter effects wind drag, as well as shape of projectiles. My research concluded that a 30 caliber needed to be followed by a much heavier bullet and power to make much difference past 3006. Next real step is 50 bmg. Unless you change bullet weight drastically, like using depleted uranium. But, exotic bullets have been known to chew barrels. Just like too much velocity.

Took my father out behind the ranch today. He's never shot over 100 yards (purely a hunter). So he brought out his Browning 7mm Rem Mag with the old Vortex Crossfire (original not the II). I told him how to dial in his scope and he fired one round right over the top of the gong at 500 yards. Told him to dial down a couple inches and he placed two more shots within two and a half inches of each other. Was very proud of him. Of course I brought out my M40A1. All in all it was a great day!
>>
Side view of the rifle for anyone interested. Yes my tactical blue foam pad!
>>
>>41465993
True that. Back in the day there only a handful of options for a decent budget glass. I do enjoy the diversity of today's market. All things considered, if I had to pick one scope to for a SHTF/Apocalypse/WW3 scenario, it would be their 10x42. That or a 5k Nightforce.

>>41466314
>>41466124

I really don't see the point of long action calibers, especially Lapua type stuff, unless you have a 1000+ range to play on. It's just a waste of money.
>>
>>41466393
>>41466430
Is that a legit Unertl? I heard you can still find them in mint condition if you look hard enough.
>>
>>41466181
Thats why I prefer boattails. Plus, when you up the density of a bullet, depleted uranium or tungsten, you must increase powder load for velocity, thus increasing terminal energy and lowering windage coefficient. But, those rounds both need Copper banding or full copper jacket's. Plus the added density wears throats on barrels faster especially at the rifiling. Theyre excellent projectile s though. Pure copper is great, but a du or tungsten round is in it's own class.
>>
>>41466430
Thick. Unertl also.
All original?
What is the barrel profile, length, diameter at Receiver, muzzle diameter?
Classic piece of history and beautiful in its own purposeful way.

Sadly no, not an original Unertl but one of the US Optic MST100 scopes. These were made as a replacement for the USMC Unertl MST100 after Unertl went out of business. A Unertl will run about twice the cost of the USO (and the USO is pricey enough).

6.5 is good out to 1000 yards easily, .338 LM is when you wanna get out to mile territory
>>
>>41467681
You're less likely to hit a target at 1760 yards with 140gr 6.5 creedmoor compared to 285gr .338 LM, but you can still ring steel. Both rounds at that distance demand a better-than-average ability to make wind calls on top of your core marksmanship fundamentals. Good wind reading and marksmanship fundamental practice can be had with a 22lr trainer rifle at 200-300 yards.
>>
>>41466721
Energy on target is valuable for hunters and ELR shooters. Otherwise you're right, no reason to blow your shoulder out to punch paper with a 300 RUM

I have a fixed 6x and 20x they're both great but the 20x needs full daylight to shine, but im not group chasing at dawn or dusk and I live in Phoenix so it works great for me.

When you break the $2K scope barrier the quality of the glass is almost impossible for the human eye to discern. Only on the edge between twilight and darkness will the difference between $2K and $3k glass become apparent. More obvious differences are in the reticles, be very careful in your choice because some reticles become nightmares in the field!

It’s a little traditional but this is the rifle I put together. For the money a used 700 5R is a great choice.
My rifle has vx6hd glass (probably could have gone vx5- I cant see worth shit), timney 2 stage Calvin elite trigger, nightforce rings and rail, gg&g bipod... I think I have about 3k in it and it’s a whole lot of fun at my range. Steel targets every 100 yards out to 1200 yards. There’s targets interspersed out to 2 miles tho

what scope for .338 at 1000 yards lads, and also what rings

>>41466721

Agree'd. I always laugh at dudes that want to just beat gongs at 500 yards, but wont consider anything that not a 30cal or up. 6.5 will hit em just fine, as will heavy hand loaded 223.

What does a 5.56 or 7.62 scout rifle bring to the table that an AR platform in the same caliber with the same optic doesn't? I don't own a rifle since handguns are what I'm passionate about, but I feel like I need to own a rifle for boogaloo
>>
>>41469110
Nothing, scout rifles are just a fun meme. Build a free floated ar15 of reputable manufacture with a chrome lined barrel, buis, and choice optic. I really like LPVOs but depending on where youre at and how you intend to use it that might not be right for you.

For me it started when I first seen the movie "Sniper" with Tim Berenger in theaters when I was a kid. That rifle just seemed so epic in the hands of a Scout Sniper, even though the rifle in that movie was just a plain remington 700 with a Leupold scope. Since then I always wanted an M40A1.
>>
>>41469515
Right?! That’s why I bought one. 80s AF. I grew up playing with GI joes and watching that kind of movie. I almost bought a steyr ssg69 cause of lone wolf mcquade. I’ll probably still buy one.

Does anybody own a sako or can attest to the quality of those rifles? A buddy of mine bought a guide gun from them is 375 h&h and is offering it to me for like 900 bucks with 4 shots fired.

If I'm proficient with my weapon, is a 300 yard 4" group with iron sights while standing doable unsupported with a tree or shooting sticks? The weapon itself is proven 1/2 moa in bench conditions with my own loads.
>>

>>41470121
thats going to be more like a big game rifle not so much a long range precision rifle
>>
>>41468385
It’s not really a renaissance they’ve been common since forever
>>
>>41468429
6mm is king of long range. The only reason you need any long action magnum rounds is if you actually want to kill something at that distance
>>
>>41470981
Yes, but I always wanted a big game rifle. Not for any particular valid reason beyond range toy and trying to outshoot my casual friends with their actual precision rifles with an elephant gun.
>>
>>41471975
Isn't that the point? Is this just target shooting general? I'm pretty sure 6.5 cree will kill a human at 1000 yards. It might not as hard as 300wm or something but it will sure as shit take a man out of a fight.
>>
>>41472157
he means big game in a timely manner so it does get a mile into a valley after you shoot it. really, coyotes have been known to run after a centerfire rifle caliber pencils through them.
Shooting people is a bit different
>>
>>41472186
Then yes I misunderstood. Use 270win if you need to ethically drop things between 300-800 meters. 7mm rem mag would be my choice for 1000 yard hunting of large game.

243 Winchester would be my choice for people. Small action, enough to drop deer for food, and small and light enough to pierce armor. Flat shooting too.
>>
>>41472122
it's probably not going to outshoot them but it will be loud and fun toy if you can feed it. Sako is a pretty respected name.
Youre not going to get a lot of range out of it even if it does shoot well it's going to be lacking in range compared to a lot of options and if youre hoping for ridiculous overkill on animals it might be lacking there too depending on bullet options compared to something fragmenting like an ELDM or VLD hitting at higher speeds.

It would be good for bear and probably some african game though
>>
>>41472245
Sako ensures a sub moa group with every rifle with their ammunition so if that holds up I may be able to compete at 500yards. My gun club has run and gun competitions and people compete with silly shit all the time (mosins in 50 yard robin hood shoots are my favorite because he always brings milsurps to compete against the ar15 guys). I might try to light load it and have fun.

I agree that magnums are necessary for hunting at longer ranges, but if you're just plinking plates at 1000, there's really no reason outside personal preference to go with a 300wm or above over 6.5cm or other 6mm calibers.
>>
>>41467020
That's alright. Those MST100s are more than appropriate for an M40 build. Gorgeous rifle anyway. I envy you my guy.
>>
>>41471975
Yeah, 6BR and the other 6mm cartridges will plink steel at 1000 all day, every day. Even if you're into hunting at LR, some of those 6mm rounds have pretty similar ballistics to magnum rounds up to those ranges.
>>
>>41472324

Dude thats retarded, what gun are you attaching this too? You can afford literally the two most winningest scopes for national match and PRS.

Nightforce ATACR 7-35x56mm F1 ZeroStop .1mrad DigIllum PTL Mil-C C578
and
Kahles K525i 5-25x56 CCW .1mrad SKMR3 RSW 10644

O spuhr mount or seekins rings, those are the best in their catagories. Id use the seekins rings if hunting or hiking with it.


These are the two best long range scopes right now. Please say you have a 4k+ gun to attach them too. Your scope should cost more than your gun.

I will be honest at your price point I dont have hands on. about 2k for a scope is my limit. But this website should be your friend when it comes to the equipment you will need to take that thing to a 1600 or beyond.

https://precisionrifleblog.com/

Look at the pros use sections. It literally compiles all of the gear, weapons, optics used by top finishing PRS and National match contestants. You can even see what is used by the winners versus downstream.

If you need instruction i would do something like https://www.bergara.online/us/the-bergara-academy/
You wont be able to use your rifle, but they are teaching the fundamentals all the way to 1200, and its a lot of fun.

>>
>>41478105
You can get a Tasco pronghorn for like 30 bucks and they’re good enough. Zero your scope at 100 yards (just walk it out) and then study your ballistics. Generally 100-200 yard ballistics are similar in drop. Maybe your bullet drops 3” at 300 yards. Get a range finder so you know exactly how many yards and print out and tape your ballistics on your stock. Then just aim 3” above your target. Don’t need a bunch of Christmas tree reticle stuff for that. It’s about as good as you can do for $100

Any caliber can really become a precision caliber. Shooting precision simply means shooting accurately multiple times in a row. It can mean shooting a 22LR at 50 yards to shooting a 50 BMG at 2000 yards.
>>
>>41488833

Checked.

>>41489044

This is absolutely true. Precision shooting =/= long distance shooting. However long distance shooting does = precision shooting. I have more fun chasing groups with calipers at 100 yards with small calibers than I do ringing steel out past 1k with big calibers.

ST-10 can be found for $950. Regardless, stay away from uso. They're utter garbage. Go find a nightforce SHV 4-14x50 F1 with a mil reticle. It is leagues ahead of uso in quality, and the best optic in that price range.

Delicious, delicious tears. I hit a normal size propane tank on the range today, 415 yards away. With a 6 inch barrel 38 special. And knocked my 8 inch gong around @ 200 yards pretty frequently. Twas a good session, considering I haven't shot that gun past 50 yards till today.

Varget? Or varmint profile barrels? Ive heard heavy barrels called that, im assuming its local vernacular.
>>
>>41503498

I don't know if you use different terminology in Burgerland, but this is what I'm looking at: https://www.tikka.fi/rifles/tikka-t3x/t3x-varmint

Varmint has a pipe that is more thicc compared to the regular T3x. I have read it is good for long-range shooting, but I do not understand why.
>>
>>41503642
More stiffness and rigidity in a given length typically, also take longer to heat up when firing longer strings.
>>
>>41503683

Thank you for the explanation. Is 60 cm (24 inches) pipe length sufficient or do I need something even longer?
>>
>>41503722
24-26 inches is perfect for long range. 22 inch is doable but more likely going to be for hunting as well
>>
>>41503722

Barrel, my man, barrel. And in the states varmint hunting is pretty popular, and its basically popping groundhogs all day, so it requires a barrel that won't heat up as fast. A 24 inch barrel should be more than enough for 95% of calibers.
>>
>>41503738
>>41503783

Excellent, I think I am zoning in on what to use then. I'll get a Tikka T3x and attach a silencer to decrease the recoil. The only thing that remains to decide on is optics. There are so many options for scope to choose from that it feels rather overwhelming. I think 25x magnification should suffice, no? What are some options I could go with if I have a budget of $800? How about if the budget would increase to $1.5k - would there be a noticeable increase in quality even for a person who has not done this for years?
>>
>>41461522
whats wrong with .308? I've been trying to decide if the T3X hunter I'm getting should be in 7mm-08 or .308.

I just picked up Vortex Viper PST Gen II 5-25x50 EBR-2D MRAD (FFP) PST-5257 for $750 all in with tax and shipping. MSRP is $1,100 or so. Came in mail today, optic wuality is great, I am really impressed.
>>
>>41504451

It is twice that in Yuropoorland unfortunately. Otherwise it seems the clear choice. I have heard a lot of good things about Vortex in that price range.

If you reload, 7-08, if you dont 308. If you want mememasheens 6.5 creed.

Is a fixed 10x too much for 300 meters? I've been indoctrinated by YouTube videos that fixed is best and 10x is the most versatile magnification setting.

I have badger ordnance rings and rails, no complaints so far. As far as 700-style rails and rings go, they seems to be pretty well liked too

No, I literally use 20x for 100 yard group chasing.

Absolutely. And its a ton cheaper on average. At least in my neck of the deserts.

What do you guys think of Sako rifles? I was originally going to get something less expensive like a Tikka, but I'm going to have a lot of disposable soon and a Sako Finnbear Deluxe in 30-06 was my grandfathers favorite rifle. I've always wanted one because of this, and I really like how the model 85 classic looks. would it be a terrible idea to splurge for the Sako?
>>
>>41508291
Every company has their flaws...but if you have the coin and you really want a sako then its entirely up to you.

My suggestion is to finger fuck one for a long time at a gunstore before you buy. Nothing worse then buying a rifle that has great reviews but feels wonky as fuck in your hands.
>>
>>41506415
No. You’ll need an adapter. They’re made to mount on a sling swivel stud.
>>
>>41506653

Distance?
Bench queen or hunting? Both? 60/40?
Group chasing? (How far) or gong chasing (how far)
Do you reload? If yes what calibers
Are you willing to learn?
Yes? Whats reloading budget?
What country? Are you allowed centerfire semi autos?

So many buttfucking variables besides budget, be specific nigger, or you will get "buy a .22 bolt, and learn wind and holds and gitgud faggot"

The Anime DMR, created by WhatgripWhatstock aka wugggy aka wusgus aka Max Chen aka K's /ARG/ title Making a Murder aka Wugwug. Is a very real rifle barely capable of 1 MOA, shooter dependent.

I'm working on the permission slip for my suppressor right now. In the meantime I was wondering, if I thread a suppressor on the end of my barrel and twist it 360 degrees clockwise, will the point of aim move approximately 360 degrees clockwise too?

It depends on the height of your scope rings and the elevation available in your scope. I rock 40 moa total which will take my 6.5CM out past a mile with my scope.

I'm a 23 year old boomer who thinks 7mm rem mag is the best general purpose 1000 yard cartridge and 6.5 is a flash in the pan 260 Remington clone. Change my mind because I feel the need to capitalize on the 6.5 popularity.
>>
>>41514718
Eh 6mm bullets tend to have the best ballistics for long range. 6.5mm to 7mm is the best for killing targets at range. Can’t remember where I saw all the data for it. I feel like the best balance of everything would be a 6.5mm long action or magnum round

The fixed 10x will compare to 2k usd optics in terms of clarity and tracking. It will be more rugged and lightweight. I'm biased towards fixed but performance per dollar beats the hell out of variable.

You make it sound tempting.
I looked through an swfa 16x before. It was reasonably good but had a small eyebox. Though idk about the 10x
