Where are you guys running yours? I have the end of my S&B around the location of the start of the composite stock on the top and with two spacers (one removed) I measure approximately 11 inches from end of scope to end of stock. This feels right on the bench but I did a little playing around at home for prone and it feels a little long at high magnifications. Tomorrow at the range I will tell for sure but wanted to get some of your opinions on setup. Found out I can shoot prone at this range after all.

Re: DTA SRS Scope Placement

Thanks Dogtown. That is the same place I have mine except I have two spacers in the stock instead of the three that you have. How is your eye relief and x25 in prone?

It's very comfortable - this was the more natural placement for me, but your mileage my vary.

Re: DTA SRS Scope Placement

Thats just about where I had my NF mounted on my old DTA. Worked well for prone and bench use.

Take care,Stan

Here's my buddy shooting it. It's uber-stable, though perhaps a bit overkill for the SRS and lacks any ability to twist. Apparently they will be used on the Ashbury stocked McMillan TAC50s.
