These are good observations, both. Both observations (especially the first) have as much to do with technique and, guessing, light sporter profiles.

Over many range sessions you can develop a...

I've run the test several times with an Anschutz 64 sporter. Vertical at 50 and 100 yds is identical. For some reason there's a consistent 0.1 mil windage adjustment.

I carried a 3 digit SN LWS .32 for decades. One day out back with the dogs saw a seriously large sow black bear. Problem was she didn't seem to give a crap we were there. Kinda just walked off,...

Refers to dot subtension. So a 4 MOA dot is a roughly 4" circle at 100 yds.

Larger is somewhat more user-friendly at speed, and flares less with uncorrected astigmatism. Smaller is better if...

Another vote for the 20x. As Wyocaddis said the higher magnifications take some getting used to: critical eye relief and narrow cone. But there's a reason benchrest folks use them. And 20x is not...

What 'Ol Shooter said. They are smooth, tho.

Rather sink the money into a 16 or HK sear. Of course, M11 options are pretty broad now.

TSMGs do make sense if you're a collector. Then...

Great post, Chaser! Agree completely. We use a 10/22 w/Micro for beginners and speed work. Once kids can center the cone, get eye relief, they want magnification for most stuff.

We had an older version, and it still works perfectly. IIRC, the dot is something like 5 MOA. We used it on a 10/22, mostly youth group shooting.....but alot of it. Held zero fine. Got a R-1...

Yes, indeed.

Also, never do a box test with a scope you can't afford.

Don't even check for maintained zero several consecutive days/outings with a scope you can't afford.

The problem was perception. The aesthetics of large wood/metal gaps and pressed checkering bothered non-gun writers more than the button ejector and loss of CRF.

The .240 has an excellent reputation for accuracy. Probably reflects the much shorter freebore vs all the larger rounds.

There was nothing slight about the burn rate variations I've seen with IMR-4831.

3300 fps+ for a 180 gr .300 Win (24") at well below "book" max charge. It should have given about 2900 and...

My CCI SV thrashes my GECO bolt in all our rifles but one, a 1966 SA 141. For whatever reason the result is a tie with that one.

As often as I purchase new powders or new powder lots. That's often enough that I usually end up with each revision.

Patch Out is all I use now. The KG products are similar. Both safe to leave in the bore. And it gets out Cu++ that my higher-NH3+ solvents leave.

Reverse is more like it. HS bulk stuff doesn't shoot much better in our Anschutz rifles than it does in our youth group 10/22s.

Better ammo more clearly separates average and good barrels.

The old metal IMR cans were notorious. IMR-4831 maybe the worst. Inside walls oxidize, powder ends up with a fine red dust. Sometimes the powder is usable, sometimes not.
