WTF!

Can anyone point me in a good direction, I'm lost, lmao.

I want something for a bench shooter bolt action, mainly between 50-200 yards max. (By the time I'm looking to bust this fucker out to 600 I'll know what I'm doing.)

Is a 1-6x enough, or should I go with 3-9x? Not looking to break the bank here either, some shit burger that holds zero is fine, I don't need fancy gizmos, super awesome taticool redicals or 3,000,000x magnification.

Was looking at the 1-4x & 1-6x because as I graduate I can put those on the AR and use the 1x as a "red dot" type site.


Very good rifle scope. I strictly use a 3-9x for all applications, except rimfire where I use a 1-4x cheap scope (buy cheap for most rimfire because they have a parallax adjustment not common in higher scopes).

Brownells has some decent deals on AR parts right now.

Bushy lower for $50, after shipping and transfer you're looking at $80... Not bad.

Bushy BCG's for $50 off, and a 16" DD 1:7 in 556 for $200...

Having a hard time not picking up that BCG as a spare, but I really only need the spare bolt and pin, not the whole carrier.

Went home and checked, I was wrong, they are both 3-9X's. One is a Simmons and the other is a Tasco. Dad has a Bushnell that were all less than $60. All are at least 10 years old and perform incredibly well.

It took awhile but I managed to get my action cam up and running.

Straight forward stage at a local practice match. Unloaded start square with wall, then shoot them as you see them.

It is! Getting started can be a bit frustrating, but you're already a good shooter so you should get the hang of it real quick. After that, you'll end up an addict.

Yes, that's a 34.

It may have looked smooth but I ended up shooting the left most no shoot twice on the last array twice. Not good.

Damn, I have so much work to do. Your mag changes and speed at which you acquire your sight picture...

Good shooting man.

Thanks. I think we all have a lot of work to do, if you can even call it work. One season of shooting matches is a great way to learn.
