I have seen this in action (certainly not enough to be an expert on Sig scopes). However, the technology behind this is extremely impressive and I would have loved to have had the "Backbone" to step out and buy one. I went with something (in my mind) that had a little longer "Track Record" and bought a Leupold 6HD to top my X-Bolt Speed. Of course, the weight alone would defeat my purpose of a "lite" hunting rifle. I believe that you will be totally happy with how you have spent your money. The first hike up in Elk country or Long Horn Sheep country may make you think otherwise. Please post pictures........we MUST have pictures.
I purchased Lapua brass before I had the rifle thinking that it was a must for good case life. I don’t expect to shoot any competition or even practice long range distances. The longest range in my near area is 300 yards long at most (there is an 800 yard range about 2 1/2 hours from here). After reading about how so many of you are getting a good number of reloads from Hornady brass, I’m beginning to wonder if my money might have been better spent on something else. After all, I am reloading for hunting only (and some 100 yard practice).
I am trying to learn ways of making more consistent ammo. While watching a couple of videos on certain runout tools, I understood isome to say that after the ammo was made, it was best to minimize runout by zeroing it by moving the bullets in the casing. It seems to me that this might cause one to loose neck tension. I used to never question a thing until after trying it, but now days it seems that it is better to ask before acting. Any help would be greatly appreciated
I have a RR with a 24” bull and a nm trigger. Mine was supposed to be 1 and 2 pounds. Personally, I wouldn’t like it for hunting, but for steel or paper punching, I LOVE it. I can really get into a rythem with it. I wouldn’t trade it for another, especially for the money. That said, we all have our likes and dislikes.
Thank all of you very much for your help. I’m now trying to decide between the 5HD and the 6HD. $300 is a lot of money to me. That being said, I hope that I can resist my addiction to purchase more rifles and that this one will be my last. I will pay the extra if the 6HD is truly worth it over the 5HD. Any input would be greatly appreciated as I put together “MY” ultimate Hunting Rifle.
Any experience with Leupold VX-5HD and/or Nightforce SHV would be helpful. I’m trying to decide between a Leupold 3-15 or a Nightforce 3-10. About same price. Both with simple duplex reticles. Not for targets, but for hunting. To me, it’s all about the glass and function. I don’t have any experience with either. Thank you in advance!
