I'm shooting a tac tourney tomorrow, and decided to bring out the old girl for the match. I zeroed today, and had to remember how zero the scope. It seems every time I forget, and then have to relearn.

I thought you guys waiting for your scopes could use a fix. I'll update with my results after my match.

Re: For you M40a1/MST-100 guys

It was a spec build on a return stock done by Eric when he was still at GAP. 6 digit action, contract barrel, etc...

The tags are in fact my drop charts. I do this with all my long range rifles. I can give them a quick check and not break position.

Re: For you M40a1/MST-100 guys

Let me tell you something cous, you're a better man than I am. First thing I noticed in your pics wasn't your awesome rifle, it was that big assed propane tank downrange. No way I'm shooting with that downrange without putting a few rounds in it. Kind of like when I'm driving and see something in the road, I just can't help myself but hit it. I'd have blown that fucker up quick.

Beautiful weapon, and nice groups too!

A propane tank won't explode when fired at...Ask me how I know...

It does if you duct tape a road flare to it first. Not trying to be a jerk, or a know it all, but I've forgot more since I woke up this morning about shooting/blowing up propane tanks and a lot of other stuff than most folks ever knew.

I'm the first to admit that she's harder to shoot well than my A5 Remington 700 .308 with my USO, but that doesn't mean any less fun. It's truly a special rifle.

Re: For you M40a1/MST-100 guys

Well when it was all settled we had 15 mph wind gusts, and temperatures in the low to mid 50's. I finished 3rd so the old girl didn't disappoint. This match was from 100 to 700 yards.





All ranges are marked by their pasties except 700 witch were left unmarked.

Handloads:

175 SMK
43.5 grains Varget
Win hulls
CCI 200 primers
Around 2675 fps

I used the BDC out to 400 without any changes, and then went down 1 MOA for the rest. It looks close enough for me given that optics intention.

Re: For you M40a1/MST-100 guys

Great shooting yesterday, it was nice to shoot with you guys again.

You would have gotten first if you'd counted your shot on target 6...

Were the 1 MOA down changes due to the cooler weather, or was the Varget stable enough for you in changing temperatures?

    I'll take pictures like this over some skank with "daddy issues" spreading her legs to make a buck any day of the week.

    Sorry, I know it's a little off topic, I'm just sayin'...
