Interesting.  I've seen other mounts that are similar.  I just wonder how they hold up to prolonged recoil abuse from a bigger caliber.  I've seen too many rings/mounts break over the years.
What's a click?

I hear they run them on the ELR center fire rifles but I don't know the caliber limit.
I thought I read about a fifty shooter using one but I cant find were I read it, might be worth a call if you're interested in using one.

when you get the new scope zero'd, figgure out how much 'up' you have in the dial.



I need to figgure out how the new camera works, especially if BK can't make the next Mile Match.

Maybe should look into that

It's completely legal.   The only problem is that it puts you into FR Class (Full Retard), and you might be the only one in the entire country running FR.   Of course, it would set you up for 1st Place in your class, everytime you shoot.

  • 1911 - is there anything else to say?
It's simple.  Turn it on, and aim.  Never turns off... If you want to hit record you can, it will record up to 8 hours I believe. 

You can zoom on a gnats lash with that thing  ;D

I'm assuming the cords/plug ins/ tripod is/are the same.

Is there a viewfinder on it or do you have to set up the TV to aim it?

Cords the same.  Viewfinder on it. I'll be out there for the ironman end of next week if you came out I can show you.

New scope is on and zeroed at 100yds.  I have 25.4 Mils up in the scope, also even with my 20moa base, scope has 18.4 mils of down.  Total adjustment in this scope is 43.8 mils!  So i should be able to dial out to 1900ish yards.  See you at the mile shoot!   :D

well, folks, I tried the mile today with the .260.  Mind you, this was shooting 140gr Amax that I had zero data for (chrono went to hell, and no, there is no bullet hole in it ;)  I got a good gauge on my velocity just from shooting my steel at 300...anyway, I had about 25 mils of elevation plugged in and I was dancing all around my target but never hit it.  I had several hits at 1K, which still made me feel somewhat adequate...but still, I want to artillery the mile mark with the .260!!!

Tony D and I hit steel @ 1845 with our .260's and it was really hard to see splash or hear the ring with a 139 gr bullet.

at the Mile Shoot we have a TV camera that will broadcast the hit on steel and you can see the miss if the mis is close enough on the camera also

What were you pushing the 139's?

Seeing splash was definitely difficult.

Check these out.

Great concept, I like it and would try it. Like Edge says, will it hold up to heavy recoil?
If it holds up to heavy recoil I see a use for it at the Mile Shoot :)

It looks like their testing on some heavy recoil rigs!

The thing that turns me off about the thing is you'd need a ladder to rest your cheek on.
