I was on GB early one morning and found this M700 Limited in 257 Roberts. I guess the guy needed some quick cash, I never seen another NIB that low since then. And probably never will again.

I pulled it out of the wood and put it into an HS stock, added a Ziess Diavari T scope, Talley rings and mounts, and took it to my hayfield to try it out.

I only had 67 yds clear to shoot that day- my pasture hadn't been cut. But you get the idea. 3 rds.

Savage 10FCP .308 McMillan

Took the first pic before any shots were fired from it, and never thought to take "after" pics of the target, so I don't have a target showing the grouping. It's an EGW base, and I put a cheap scope and rings on it that I borrowed from a buddy so I could shoot it and see it's potential. It shot 3-round ragged-hole groups at 100 yds off the tool box and a flannel shirt...

I need to get some good glass on it and get on my buddy's 800 yd range!

In a perfect world you'd want 0 MOA built into your rail since most scopes come fairly close to centered and the closer you are to the middle of the scope's adjustment range the clearer the picture is. The problem is that many scopes don't have enough vertical adjustment to account for trajectory at long range.

The .308 is a fairly slow and heavy bullet and has a lot of drop to it as the range gets out. I was told that for my 20" barrel .308 I should go for a 20 MOA base (which is what I bought) if I wanted to shoot to 1000 yards. A lot will also have to do with the scope. As a general rule 1" scopes have less vertical adjustment range than a 30mm scope. My scope (the SWFA SS 3-9x42) is 30mm tube and actually has quite a bit of adjustment I've been told. I might have gotten by with a 0 MOA rail even at 1000 but I figured I'd play it on the safe side and go for 20 MOA.

If I'd only ever planned on using my .308 to 600 yards or so I would have bought the zero cant rail. It is highly unlikely that I'll find myself shooting at 1000 very often but I wanted to buy one rail that could do it all. But to answer your question I think that trajectory compensation is the only reason they come in various MOA's. Hope this helps.

PS- They don't just come in 10, 15, 20 MOA, they also come in 30 and 40 MOA. When you shoot your .50 cal at a mile or so I think you want a 40 MOA.

For anyone who hasn't checked out snipershide.com here is a link of FAQ's in their Bolt Gun subforum. This thread is an absolute gold mine to beginners like myself:

Thank you, sir! That helps to provide some perspective, appreciate it. I'll do some more homework, check out the link and bulk up as much as possible.

Long story short I decided to sell the HS Presision stock and within a few weeks (hopefully) it will be in an AICS 2.0 stock. They cost a lot of money and I'm not wild about the looks (they are growing on me), but the accuracy is supposedly second to none and the folding stock will come in super handy. A motorcycle is my main form of transportation. With the AICS 2.0 and the 20" barrel the overall length comes to only 32". That will be way easier to transport on the bike than a typical rifle case. I'll put up new pictures when it's complete.
Man you're gonna LOVE that AICS stock. I got to play around with a AI AW 2 weeks ago, and it is just so comfortable to get behind. The folding stock will help clean too since you don't have to take apart your stock to get a dewey rod down the barrel.


1911collector,
Something to note about the higher MOA rails, you'll have to be careful because you may run out of adjustments to attain a 100 yard zero. 20 MOA would be max I would run on a .308, but that also largely depends on the scope you choose to run. Also to note, the less magnification you run, for the most part the more elevation have you have compared to higher magnification scopes of the same make and model. 30mm tubes are advantageous since they allow more travel in your adjustments. If you can bump up your cost in your scope, there are a lot of nice features you can look into. One thing I will get for my next scope is a zero stop. I can't think how many times I've forgotten to reset my adjustments to zero. Once I took my first shot at 600 plate and shot 40 minutes high because I was at zero, but just 4 revolutions past my 100 yard zero. Whoops. Everyone laughed at that since I had 3 spotters watching. They saw the vapor trail just fly waay over my target.

But it's fun. It gives a lot to think about and consider vs the other types of shooting you can get into. Whatever the case, make sure your reticle matches your turrets. It makes a huge difference. If you run mildots to a MOA turret, get a Mildot master as it takes most of the math out of your shooting. Otherwise you can bring a calculater to the range. Matching turrets to your reticle allows the shooter to spot their own hits and make their own adjustments by seeing how many MILS or MOA off they are from their POA. If the shooter sees he's 3 Mils high and 2.4 Mils left, he can adjust his turrets accordingly and reengage.

JBM ballistics is probably the best online sight to get your soft dope, but you'll have to get a hard dope by confirming at a flat range and LRF.

Anyways, read up on SH, it's a great link. I would advise to lurk and read as much as possible. They're a rough crowd, especially with basic questions. But the information there is vast and plentiful. Good luck!

Beautiful AICS stocks Lazy Eyed Sniper! A green AICS 2.0 is in my very near future. My barreled 700 XCR Compact action and scope are now sitting naked since selling the standard stock.

PS- can you give me info on the rail under the black 2.0 stock (where you have your VFG attached)? I'm going to mount my Harris bipod on a LaRue QD mount but I need a rail to attach it to.

Gents,

Finally getting around to posting some pics of my "serious" bolt rifles...

G.A. Precision .338 Lapua w/MK IV M1 16X Luppie:



Winchester Stealth .223 Rem w/Luppie 3.5 X 10X MK IV LR scope in Badger Ordnance Rings and mount:



M40A1 7.62 X 51MM: Obermeyer 5R barrel, McMillan stock, Badger Ordnance rings and mounts, Luppie MK IV M1 10X w/mil-dot reticle. Little guy is my spotter "Buddy". This is my favorite rifle.



Another shot of the M40A1. Lower rifle is my LRB ARMS M14SA. Both are winners.



Remington 700 VS in .223 with McMilland stock and laminated stock. This is my project rifle. Haven't decided on caliber yet...



I have a number of custom hunting rifles that I'll try to get pics up soon.

These rifles have all stood the test of time and are 1/2- MOA shooters when I do my part. The M40A1 is a 1/4 MOA rifle when the loose nut behind the buttplate gets his "feces cohesive"...

Enjoy.

Wes

I finally got my new furniture for my Remington 700 XCR Compact Tactical (in .308). I went with an Accuracy International AICS 2.0 folding stock. My primary mode of transportation to the range is my motorcycle so I wanted something fairly short for the bike. With the 20" barrel and folding stock it comes to exactly 32". Not too shabby. In fact, with a sock covering the barrel it is pretty discrete. In this picture it is in my Kifaru Express backpack, which is not a large pack at all.



Obligatory bike with rifle shot:



The Harris bipod is on a LaRue Tactical quick detach mount, mounted on a picatinny rail I had added to the bottom of the stock:



Only one brief (one hour) trip to the range so far, and the light was dimming (yep, the excuses are starting already ). My 5 shot group at 100 yards with 65degree temps, little to no breeze, 168 grain Hornady BTHP...it measures just under 1.5". nothing to write home about but most of that was my fault. The rifle is going to shoot great. I shot a 3 round group just before this one that measured well under an inch but it was on the cardboard so I didn't save it. This is going to be a great gun once I learn to drive it a little better. 5 rounds (looks like 4 but double check the middle hole):

Here's a picture of my Browning A-Bolt Medallion in .300 Win Mag...she shoots less than 1" groups at 100 yards with just reloads as the only thing different about her...soon to have a new scope (longer range shooting) and new stock (gun got caught on the canvas around a tripod stand a few years back and it went all the way down the ladder- scratching the whole stock all the way down) on her

Best shooting gun I've ever owned...had her for 7 years on Dec. 25

Edit: The glue in the picture was from another project that I forgot to move for the picture lol it has nothing to do with the gun
