Bolt Action Rifles / Desert Tech SRS-A1 Covert
Last post by DickE -
I recently purchased a Desert Tech SRS-A1 Covert rifle.  It came with a .308 Winchester 16" Barrel.  The rifle is modular and can be easily converted to other calibers so I purchased a 26" 6.5 Creedmoor barrel also.  Since it is a "Bull-Pup" design the rifle is fairly compact even with the 26" barrel.  I have shot both calibers and the rifle shoots tight groups at 100 Meters. 

I haven't seen many articles about this rifle.  Can anyone share their experiences with the Desert Tech?

Looking forward to hearing from DT shooters.

General Discussion / Me 0 1000yards 1
Last post by LeadHammer -
So I tortured myself yesterday.  Took 2 hours to arrange 1000 yards going around slews and over rolling hills while adding up rangefinder values and putting out marker flags.
Eventually got set up.  Missed three times and could not see ground impacts due to a falling away hill behind the target.
So we decided to move the target back to 544yards. ( just where the landscape allowed setup without moving the bench )
I was shooting right and 1/2 moa high. Adjusted my scope, repainted my steel. Took three shots, after shooting two just left of center, adjusted scope over one click and sent the third just right of center.  Group was 3" No vertical.
So that was fine, moved the steel back to 1000, and shot another six rounds. Nothing.  I must have something wrong with range setup/rifle setup/and for sure me lol.  My last few shots I dialled back my Ballistic AE clicks to try and get in front of the target to spot the misses better and managed to see some snow fly on two of them. ( still behind the target )  It was almost dark so we packed up and drove to the target.  I found two of my last impacts behind the target, but still way back. I'm not sure why I was shooting so high at 1000.  Wind was from 1-3 mph at 9:00  The bullet is dropping quick so pretty sure going under the target and hitting dirt and snow behind it was impossible.  Time to go over everything.
At least I got great results at 544, and I did see more bucks on my trail cam, including a shooter buck.

Reach Out,
Great summation of what really matters.  My Dad jumped in on D-Day.  Got boogered up and spent rest of the war walking or riding to the fight.  Turned 18 during the Battle of the Bulge.  Would only talk about the cold and how scared he was.

I travel for work  few times a month. I often see the organized tours of WWII veterans headed to Arlington. There are fewer and fewer of these amazing Americans each year. I thought I was pretty solid in my composition but I tell you, watching an entire concourse come to a halt to clear a path for these heroes brings a tear to my eye and a lump to my throat every time. I clap like a monkey with cymbals and they all get a Hooah and Airborne from me. Those are my heroes. They do not make Americans like that anymore. Both of my Grandfathers were WWII and Korea. My Father and Uncle were Viet Nam. I was Iraq and Afghanistan. Before my Grandpa died, we were having a whiskey out on his back patio while I was on 2 week leave. He said "Billy, I've been watching the news on this war and I don't know how you do it. Kicking in doors, fighting from mountain top to mountain top." That was a moment in my life I will never forget. My hero, a decorated WWII and Korea Vet telling me that he was astounded by my combat actions. I told him that I did not agree with his assessment of my day to day duties as he was a D Day participant and my reason for joining in the first place but thanked him all the same.
Being AB is a family tradition. We all "Checked our cantaloupe" at Benning and off to Bragg we went. Nothing fancy, just dedicated troops, all good with a rifle and not afraid of heights, so to speak. 
I have been hesitant to address my battle scars as I often compare myself with those that did not come home or came back missing parts of their bodies. I had my bell rung, hard (10 Concussions). Took a round in the hip, and got burned from a VBIED. Through the chats with Grandpa I learned that it is OK that I am not healed yet, or may never be. What matters is that we stood up for the right reasons and did the right thing. I now embrace the suck of civilian life, day to day not knowing why I have so little patience for all of these idiots running around with no higher purpose but to get ahead of each other in line. Then I remember: It was these people that I worked for. They were the reason that we did what we did and the next generation does what they have to do.
Thanks for sharing your stories. I enjoy reading them. RLTW!

Hi all,

I've just bought Bergara HMR 6.5 creedmoor with 20MOA piccatiny rail. Could you please advice what rings and height will be ok for Vortex Viper PST2 5x25 50mm? Those Weaver's on Sean's Bergara looks fine but I don't know what size they are.

Regards
Adam

Thanks Jerry. That's pretty much my train of thought, though
sometimes, someones throws a gem out there, that is worth
a peek.  ;)  I'm not really a wild catter either.  For some time
now though, I've had this urge to create my own cartridge,
and build a rifle around it. I picked this idea because it was
off the beaten path, but still in the realm of a short action.

With the passing of my father several years back, I was finally able
to go over some papers locked away. He survived WW2, but never
talked about it. The biggest deal was to find his detachment papers
intact.....I knew he would say he was in artillery, and shot the big
gun. His hat he wore to the VFW, had a Tech Sergeant patch, an
arrow, and crossed cannons.....Papers gave me the chills.....

He enlisted into the 190th Field Artillery Battalion, Battery A.  Active
service date 25Aug43.  Shipped out to England as,  Cannoneer Heavy
Artillery 155. (Long Tom). 190th FA attached to 29th INF Div. Assigned
Omaha beach in support of the 29th.....At this point, I am unclear when
the 190th went ashore. I do know that most of the artillery was lost in
the channel during the main invasion of Normandy. Some records show
that He went ashore that evening of the 6th. I do know the first groups
to go in was awarded the Arrow patch which shows on his papers. From
Normandy, his unit went on to, Northern France, Rhineland, Ardennes
(Battle of the Bulge),and Central Europe. Earning him the Combat Service
Medal with 5 battle stars. Total time in Theater, 1 year, 10 months, 4 days.
Line 34.  Wounds received in action....NONE

I need to sit down with my brother, and start digging into some military
archives, and unit history's
