another point i will add is this, just because he says it's worth $2200 doesn't mean it is. i would have that verified independently before money or another firearm changed hands. be a shame to trade $2200 of firearms you have for something worth about half that.
I'm glad yall are here!

$2200 for a scope. I know one can pay more. I would not (1 drop whilst out hunting can = many expletives - if not tears)

Here's what a $89 scope (Bushnell Banner) can do at 100 yds, outdoors,
.270 Winchester from inexpensive rifle (Rem 783)

If you give me half that money I'll find you a scope that works as well and have money left over for ammo/charitable donations

My savage model 40, single shot .22 hornet. The Leupold 6-18 vx-2 has two ballistic lines on the bottom bar for drop. It groups around 1 1/2 with factory win softpoints. A ww2 vet friend of mine loaded some berger 40s over lil gun and CCI br4 sparks, I just need a chance to pick them up and try them. A dozen or so groundhogs have met their maker with it, hopefully more to come. Longest hit was 225 yards.

Default Bolt Action Rifles

The two finest bolt action rifles IMO are the AIAW:


And the Sako TRG 22


Both are superb rifles extremely accurate capable of 0.25 moa 5 shot groups @ 100 yards. Great triggers and built like tanks. The only dow side they are a beast to lug around. But for target shooting or sniping they can't be beat.

Thanks for the compliments guys.
The 308 SIG TRG 22 is about 7 years old and has a NightForce NXS 8-32X50 scope with a NP-R1 reticle and Sako bipod. No ZS or HST. They weren't available at the NXS time. I can shoot 0.3moa groups with it and sometime close to 0.25 moa.

The 308 AIAW folder is about a year old and has a NightForce NXS 8-32X56 scope with a MOAR reticle ZS and HST mounted in a AI 20 moa mount an Atlas bipod and a Tab Gera sling. It shoots very close to 0.25 moa groups most of the time. Those that are not usually have 4 shots under 0.25 moa with 1 shot opening the group up to 0,30 moa.
The load I use in both rifle after much experimentation with power and projos is 38 grains of IMR 4895 in Lapau brass with 168 rain SMK's.
As I get older I just do not shoot as well as I use to. I am sure if i was 20 years younger my groups would be more consistent than they are now.
