    bushnell lrts 4.5-18x44 experience?

    I've had 5 3-12 LRHS which have all gone back for warranty because you couldn't zero the turret correctly, only in 0.2 mil increments. They were all replaced with 3-12 LRTSis which have been nothing but great. I have one on my .22 and one on a M14 (that I've made hits on a 2/3 IPSC plate at 830...

    Cyke-pod uses?

    I'm hoping to figure out for myself pretty soon how the design features of the Ckye-pod help out as I have the PRS one on the way. I've played with them a bit and some of the advantages that seem obvious to me is tall grass in the field matches we have here out West as well as being able to get...

    Rangefinder for IPSC to 1500

    For what it's worth I have the Kilo 2400BDX and I've ranged as far as 1980 yards with it (although not on an IPSC sized plate). I was using it at a team field match this weekend and was getting fast returns on an IPSC at 1300+ yards in the rain/drizzle though. The integration with my 5700 elite...

    2019 Sniper's Hide Cup - Individual & Team Event

    RTC rules stipulate 175-178s at or under 2750 (for .308). .308 is fine for this match, my partner and I have shot this match in Limited the last 2 years and won Limited last year (shooting 175 RDFs). The Kettle Falls RTC match is at the same venue but the venue is huge and neither the COF or...

    Optic for big gas gun

    I also ran a Mk4 (3.5-10) on an M14 and it held up great for a few thousand rounds. It has a Bushnell LRTSi 3-12 on it now that's held upswell although it doesn't get shot as much anymore so who knows.

    Switch barrel optic advice

    Yeah, I have all my rifles setup as switch barrels. I just note down what the adjustment is from each caliber in the data book I have for each barrel. The zeros stay pretty consistent but I still check zero and adjust every time I swap a barrel. It's normally not more than a 0.1 or 0.2 off what...

    anvil 30 vs lh 55 vs sirui k-40x 54mm ball head

    I dunno about the LH 55 but I used to run a K40X and now I run an Anvil-30. I compared them both side by side and found the Anvil to be more stable. I also much prefer having just the one big lever on the Anvil instead of all the knobs on the K40X.

    Who Uses A Bino Pack

    I use a Kuiu one for team matches. It's not a big deal to shoot prone with it on.

    Lot to lot velocity changes?

    Yeah, Varget is bad for lot to lot variations, I've had a 50fps swings before. H4350 is better, never had much more than a 10-15fps swing. I always load 5 or 10rds with my current powder charge when I open a new 8lbs jug and compare side by side with ammo with powder for the old lot to see if...

    OTTO NoizeBarrier earpro same as new Etymotic Elites....

    I've been using mine since the end of Jan, roughly 4-5 range trips/week, 1 local match and a 2-day NRL match. I've only charged the case once (when it was brand new) and it still shows 70% charge. The plugs themselves have never dropped below 40% for a full day's use. I'm super impressed with...

    Digital scale/autotrickler set up recommendations

    I just got an A&D FX-120i auto-trickle and auto-thrower combo. My old system was just using my Hornady powder thrower and weighing each charge on a Gempro 250. Both scales resolve down to 0.02gn but the Gempro tends to drift more. It's also much less expensive and when I compared the 2 scales...

    Soft rifle case

    I’ve got an Armageddon Gear precision rifle case and it’s perfect if you’re looking for something more minimalist rgan a full on drag bag. Tons of padding, super well made and storage space for extras as well.

    Yeah, it's all been annealed with an AMP.

    Shitty ES with H4831SC with 110SMKs in 6 Creed?

    In case anyone is curious, I swapped to Federal 210M primers today and shot a 10rd 0.56 moa group with an ES of 29. Problem solved as far as I'm concerned and hopefully the new Ad FX-120 I have in the mail will drop a few more fps off the ES.

    Shitty ES with H4831SC with 110SMKs in 6 Creed?

    Fair enough but not exactly super relevant.

    Shitty ES with H4831SC with 110SMKs in 6 Creed?

    I've got a few thousand 450s but the Prime/Norma brass is LRP. Gonna try some 250s and some Fed 210Ms if I can find em.

    Another "Tripod help" thread

    I really like my Anvil-30. currently running it on a PRST tripod. Curious if anyone has compared the PRST to the Leofoto 364C or 404C? They're both heavier than the PRST but I'm assuming a bit steadier as well?

    Shitty ES with H4831SC with 110SMKs in 6 Creed?

    Prime's brass is Norma, I found I got good results with it on my last barrel. Unfortunately I think the Reloader powders are kind of a pain to source up here in Canada. Worst case, I'll go back to H4350 because I have 16 or so lbs of it but I was hoping that H4831SC would give me good results.
