    Decided I didn't like the angle of the cheek piece of the LMT Sopmod. Now rocking the vltor A1 clubfoot. The cheek piece lifted my head out of position when I roll over to my short range site. The vltor with the slim cheek pieces is much better.

    So the sopmod is going on sale. Kind of behind selling all this prize table loot. Getting to become a second job. I'm sitting on a few glock certifiicates too. $475 for any glock w/ the exception of the long slide 34 and 35 which is a little bit more.

    You could go a couple of ways. This is a 308 right? Easy way is to just get a leopold 3x9 in whatever recticle you like. Get some decent rings. I like the warne rings as they are solid and not too expensive.

    Now if it were me I would get my rifle. Break in the barrel properly then chronograph with some good ammo like 168gr Black hills. http://www.black-hills.com/rfactorynew.htm


    Then I would go to the leupold site and go to their custom shop.

    https://secure.leupold.com/customshop/

    and get a 3x9 vxII with a custom recticle. Plug in my bullet info from black hills. My FPS average off the chrono. Rectile will be set up for a 200 yard zero with striations for 300, 400 and 500 yards. Cost will be $300 something plus change not counting scope rings.


    Mount the scope and zero for 200, confirm for 300, 400, and 500. Then shoot the piss out of the rifle, learn the positions, learn to read distance and wind.

    There is lots of new hotness. If money was not an issue you could get a Schmidt & Bender. I Like illuminated recticles so I went with trijicons new 3x9 mildot. I'll have one of the first ones. Hope to have it in august.

    I ran some numbers in my balistic calculator. That's about right. It's definately not as flat shooting as a 223 but it has more energy at distance.

    that's hard to say. I have no idea how your head is shaped. Really you have to go get a rem 700 with the same stock your going to use. Then get a cheek weld on it. Then measure to the center of your eye.

    im trying to get the scope as low to the gun as i can with my cheek on the stock im looking right down the barrel so i want to get it as low as i can get it and still keep the bell off the barrel then ill find the right cheek weld for me by adding a cheek pad to fine tune where my head sits

    low is good but if your forcing your head into the stock your going to get all kinds of paralex sighting issues. Make sure you check your head position prone as well as unsupported freehand.

    I would get the scope where you naturally cheek weld. This way you can find the recticle faster when under stress.
