  1. Pick the one load you plan to hunt with and then go sight it in. I would pick the heavier weight bullet. Wouldn't advise ever changing ammo to hunt without re-verivying zero. Can't assume it will be high or low based on bullet weight. Doesnt exactly work like like that. May be either high or low... and may also be right or left. Could be dead on still at 100yd... just cant say. Every rifle behaves differently even with same ammo. Wish there was another way, but just gotta physically shoot each and sight in. Good luck

    This is something I’ve been researching for a couple weeks. I think I gotta try this at least a couple times. Those 2 are the same ones I’ve gotten wrote down along with a Nikon. 

     

    Thanks for the info. What part in the mid south are you? Wouldn’t mind having a look one day. 

    Careful with the Nikon. They discontinued production of all rifle scopes and cannot offer warranty replacements.

  3. Asking folks with actual NRL22 type experience, what would be your top choices for a base class scope to go on a $500 rifle?  Here are two I have been looking at online are:

    -  Vortex Diamondback 6-24 FFP Mil

    -  Athlon Argos Gen2 BTR 6-24x FFP Mil

    Both msrp around $500, have glass etched reticles, and have appropriate parallax adjustment minimum for 22lr.  Very similar features overall, but im not familiar with either. I am also not sure about the design of the Athlon tube and knobs/erectors area on this model. Reminds me of primary arms.?

    Are there others in this $550 msrp, and under, price range to consider?  Thanks for any input.

  4. we planted some sweet corn in a small garden plot recently. My 3yr old loved helping so much that she niw wants to plant corn every sunny day we get. To keep her occupied, I transitioned her over to planting raisins all over the back yard. Going to get interesting if these things germinate.

  5. The Burris FF3 speed bead setup may be better idea for wing shooting. That or just practice shooting clays and work on fundamentals.

    I put a pic rail and then a red dot on a Beretta. Ended up taking it off because it was too high to get my head down on the shotgun. Would of needed a tall cheek riser/comb, and then it would of been more like aiming with a rifle. Not sure how well that setup would really be for flying birds. Just my experience and opinion. GL

    What do you consider long range? I regularly shoot 1250 with a 6.5x55 Swede, chambered in a modern Savage. 50bmg, 416, 375 cheytac & similar 'long range' chamberings are fun, but essentially useless. If you just want to clonk steel at 800+, and I hate myself for saying this,  the 6.5cm is kinda hard to beat, value for money wise. It's not the best, but it's a damn good start. 

    If I had to start again right now,  I'd be looking reeeeal hard at a 6.5prc

    This.  CM hard to beat and will get you to around 1400 super sonic. Hornady gunner 140gr has been good and is about. 80 per round. 6.5 PRC would be nice, but not enough loaded ammo choices and pricing for my preference. 

  7. Reviving an older thread, but I gotta give a shout out for another fine shooting savage. I aquired a model 10 .308 with sporter barrel and flimsy stock. Not expecting much, I tighted up the action screws and went to the range. 168gr hornady ammo produced clover leafs. I still haven't found one that I'm willing to disassemble and tinker with because they just shoot so good...
