As they say, one test is worth 1000 expert opinions. See for yourself: https://rifleshooter.com/2014/12/308-winchester-7-62x51mm-nato-barrel-length-versus-velocity-28-to-16-5/Does the 16in barrel cause any concern? I know it is not meant for extreme long range but what can I realiatically expect from the 16" barrel?
There seems to be a lot of gunsmiths that won't (can't) do anything but a 700/700 clone.If in the future I decided I wanted a longer barrel would be difficult to have it rebarreled?
You're not the only one. I have tried to convince my brother that matching the reticle subtensions to the adjustment makes things far easier. He refuses to switch. He also doesn't see the benefit of FFP.Just mounted my glass on the CZ 557 UCS. Went with the Leupold MK 4 LR/T 4.5x14x50 mounted in a Larue LT120 with TMR reticle and M1 turrets. I’m more than aware that the 1/4 MOA adjustments don’t bode well with a Milradian reticle, but I’m somewhat old school and have always been partial to the MK4 lineup. Hopefully I’ll get a range report up soon.
It absolutely makes things far easier. I agree 100%. I’d like to hear his argument on how FFP is not beneficial, that is quite interesting. It certainly has it’s benefits, it also has it’s downfalls in low powered optics such as a 1x4 and even a 1x6 dependent of course on the intended use of the scope and rifle in question. I wish Leupold had matched the sub tensions to the reticle from the get go with the Mark 4 lineup, if they had done that, and made the switch to FFP much faster they’d still be at the top of the food chain in American optics. That shortcoming has most definitely led to a decline in interest of their products in the Mark 5 and Mark 6 lineup. They fixed the issue much too late in the game.You're not the only one. I have tried to convince my brother that matching the reticle subtensions to the adjustment makes things far easier. He refuses to switch. He also doesn't see the benefit of FFP.
I was teetering on the exact same rifle, and I went with the CZ based solely on what I actually wanted to get out of this rifle. Obviously the Tikka is exceptionally better for shooting long range, the CZ though filled a specific role for me, which is why I decided on that.I'm tetering between this rifle and a Tikka T3x Tac A1 6.5CM
Oh absolutely! Have a SilencerCo Specwar 7.62 in jail right now specifically for that rifle.
That's a good price!@Tx_Aggie here is a link to a BLEM model for sale right now, great price! Same way I got mine. Transaction with Rifle Gear was flawless.
