...check this gizmo out(a fair bit further than I'll ever be trying to hit anything).
Don't limit self with one weight try a few each barrel will tell you what it likes. Some times you find the best thing by mistake.I'll probably look again at an Atlas bipod. I'm going to shoot with what I have for the time being. I'm probably gonna go ahead and order my barrel since I'm building for a very specific reason. The only ammo this thing will see is 147gr Hornady ELD match. Seems to have the highest BC of any other brand which is what I'll need for long range beyond 1000m.
147gr ELD is what these rifles really like. Even with the CF barrel. Also, the previous owner of this rifle said it likes being shot dirty. Doesn't like being cleaned. Hoping to hit the range this week.Don't limit self with one weight try a few each barrel will tell you what it likes. Some times you find the best thing by mistake.
Almost bought a Patriot Night Train in 300 WSM. May still get one.I clean my weapons after every time I shoot them. I allow them to sweat few days when shot in cold or cool weather then clean them. I guess it's the army in me.
A couple years ago a few of my friends and I decided to see who can get out to 1000 meters for under $1000.00;
I bought a Mossberg Patriot Night Train and was at 1000 m after a few rounds. I used a rest bag vice the bipod that came with it and used 7.62 mm Hornady Super Performance 165gr SST
I looked at one in .300 but the cost of firing it was crazy, 308 isn't too bad...Almost bought a Patriot Night Train in 300 WSM. May still get one.
I'm currently looking into new optics. Been looking into Vortex. Kinda hard to beat the lifetime warranty of Burris though.I looked at one in .300 but the cost of firing it was crazy, 308 isn't too bad...
They are cheapies but with a little work are OK. The optics that come with them are not great, I will change mine out now that our challenge is done.
I think that's the model I was looking into. May have been the PST. My current Burris is 5-25x50 so my new one will have to be comparable.There are many good optics out there.
Burris is great but not inexpensive...
I have used a Vortex Viper HS-T VMR-1 and it was a good optic, held the target well and adjusted easy. I will probably pick one of those up for cheap.
As far as I know Vortex carries a lifetime warranty also(at least with the Viper PST Gen II 5-25x50 I just picked up,but may be for all models).Also added their Lo Pro Bubble Level,Switchview Throw Lever,and Defender Flip Caps,and came with a sun shade,etc.Yesterday ordered a Sig Sauer Kilo 2000 rangefinder(bank account is running low now,figure I've dropped about $5,000 since xmas on the rifle,scope,2 bipods,different muzzle brake,ammo,cleaning equipment,and all of the other accessories I just had to have).I'm currently looking into new optics. Been looking into Vortex. Kinda hard to beat the lifetime warranty of Burris though.
I hear you bro,the only way I was able to afford this stuff was because I was hit on my Busa back in May and the attorneys were able to get me $10,000(so far,case still not settled).Fixed the Busa back up for about $1,300 so left me almost $9,000 to blow(am now looking at a Kimber .45,thanks to CA's dumb ass gun restriction bullshit we can't buy a Colt .45 anymore)./\/\/\/\ that's good to know and I will have to look into this as I like the Vortex, the one I'm looking at I can get for $500Cdn.
Sadly I will be helmet shopping soon and that is not a cheap venture either. I have to limit my expenditures here and there as I am a retired guy.
