Re: New Silhouette Scope

"Wish I had bought a half dozen extra EFRs and kept them around."

I did. :-)

.........and four 30x Leupolds and four Sightron 6-24 SIL. I use them on my various firearms because I like the way they feel and are dependable. Various 3/8 and 1/2" size dots on the Leupolds.

Re: Morr Edge vs D3 Precision Rings

OK experts, please chime in. I like these new rings but have a question on height. The max height per the rules is 1.5" I see Morr rings are 1.45". With the Morr rings I should be OK at nationals or other matches enforcing the rules. But... with the D3 rings @ 1.5" would I be safe? Would hate to mak...

Re: spotter plate

Never seen or heard of this type of thing. I only shoot club matches but this is the first reference I've seen on the "net". Anyone have a picture of what these look like?

Re: Leupold 6.5-20 EFR questions

Last I heard Leupold jumped the charge to $120 for a reticle change. I have a friend that purchased a 6.5-20 from Champion Shooters (I think) about three years ago that ran about $720 with the dot installed already. I looked and I don't see them listed anymore.

Yep, forgot about Wayne Merrier. His stocks are cost effective. I think you get to him through "ThePiddlers" antique store.

Re: 8.5x25 30mm tube and Annie 1712 make weight?

Evelio has been receiving some lightweight wood stocks. I assume Mark Pharr still has carbon fiber/fiberglass stocks.

Not sure if a stock is cheaper than finding a scope though.

Re: 50ft focus adapter for a side focus Leupold?

I've used two in the past to get to shorter focus distances. A couple of things to be aware of. There are two different adapters. I think 2004 was the cutoff year so depending when your scope was made will determine which one you need. Also, I think the threads are different on the front and back of...

Re: What power scope are you using?

I use 6-24 Sightrons at 20X for C&P and 24X for T &R. I have 30X scopes I plan to move to in the near future. The extra power might be distracting with the movement but in actuality the movement is the same in lower powers but it isn't as visible to the eye. I think for most people a 6-20X variable ...

Re: Scope height question

I'm trying to determine what rings and bases for a Remington 700. I thought of Morris Accuracy but at 1.45" a base would make theme too tall for hunter in HP. What are you using???
