    Rifle Scopes IOR Customer Service experience

    Re: IOR Customer Service experience YES! I bought a used rifle from this forum and it came an IOR 16x42 scope. After a few trips to the range, I realized the rear lens adjustment (not sure of the specific name) was turning on its own after a few shots, it was too loose. I called IOR last...

    .308 SIE 175 --- Varget or IMR 8208 XBR

    Re: .308 SIE 175 --- Varget or IMR 8208 XBR Actually, i've gone up to 47grains. at 46.5gr in Hornady brass, the bullet does sit on top of the powder, probably touching it, i don't think it compresses. No signs of pressure problems at 46.5gr in a 1 in 12 twist 26" barrel. Btw...I did use...

    Handload or just shoot 175 FGMM? .308

    Re: Handload or just shoot 175 FGMM? .308 what are you trying to accomplish? if it's just a cost issue, buy the FGMM and don't think twice. if your preparing to buy 500 to 1000 rounds, i doubt it's accuracy. I reload, I wouldn't bother shooting any of my bolt guns if i didn't. I've never...

    308 dies?

    Re: 308 dies? hands down, Redding dies! the redding competition seater die actually chambers the casing and bullet before seating the bullet. The bullet will be seated with less than .002 inch deviation from it's center axis. it resulted in me getting .25 moa tigher group just by using...

    Re: NF NXS 5.5-22pwr, 8-32 or 12-42??? Any thoughts on 50 vs 56mm objective? Also, leaning towards the NP-R1 reticle, should i consider somthing else. I like MOA and not mills, comes easier to me. My other scopy is a mill dot, works great for me.

    Re: NF NXS 5.5-22pwr, 8-32 or 12-42??? I got similar feedback on another forum. The 22x seems to be just right for all around use, including having the most distance. One other thing I didn't realize since I have not shot in Tacticle competitions is the 22x low end is 5.5x well suited for...
