You can beat on your scopes all you want all it will get you is a busted or worthless $2k scope. While I will still be trucking right along with my cheap ass nikon. There is absolutely no reason to beat on a scope turrets. By you refusing to prove it you make my point for me thank you.
As far as hitting steel at distance been doing that since I was a kid. Oh I was using a stock M1 with open sights 40 year old ammo ans still hitting 24" plate at 600 yards. 7 out of 8 times.
put them where ever you want them. So you don't think I am all pissy.....
Tango, how/why do you turn every discussion into a confrontation?
You seem to be threatened by the fact that MrM14 has a seriously world class scope on his seriously world class rifle, and that he mentions it from time to time. You seem to be threatened by the fact that I tap my scope turrets after making adjustments. And you seem to threatened by the fact that USMC Scout Snipers are some of the best long range shooters in the world. WTF?
And I have no idea what you mean by "Prove my statement". It was not a statement, it was me answering a question from a member and explaining why I do it that way. Why does that require proof?
Any scope that would be damaged by lightly tapping on it with an empty shell casing is a serious POS that I would never own. I'm not refusing to do anything.
And if you can take a rifle you have never fired
and fire a shot at a 24" steel plate at 800 yards, THEN CYCLE THE BOLT AND GET OFF A SECOND SHOT BEFORE THE FIRST ONE HITS THE PLATE
(with both of them hitting the plate) then I am in awe of your ability.
I have (humbly) been around some pretty high speed gun guys for most of my adult life and I have never seen anything like that. I don't even know of another shooter who could recover from the recoil and get the action cycled in that amount of time, let alone reacquire the target in the scope and send the second round downrange accurately before the first round impacted.
But that seems to be a common ability where you come from. I'm impressed.
