    I just got off of the phone with an 84 year old gunsmith in New Philly, OH. He was recommended to me as one of the best in the area. He is going to have a look at my .243 and, hopefully mount a set of 35mm rings or a Weaver rail to accept the new LRS1. It has a set of 30mm see through high rise rings and an older economy Weaver variable range scope now.

    Ring,
    Are there any QD weaver mounts that are of high enough quality to let me reliably switch from the Mauser to my AR15? I realize this would require re zeroing but if the mount is repeatable it should just be a matter of noting the individual zeros and verifying after resetting, right? Or am I asking for too much when it comes to longer range precision?

    Larue makes some great mounts

    Well, I heard from the gunsmith today. My .243 is in good shape and doesn't "need" any work. However, getting a weaver rail installed will end up costing nearly half of what I would have to pay to get an entry level dedicated long range gun. Either the Remy from atctimmy or a new savage Accu trigger model. I'll be leaving the Mauser alone. I guess I need to do a little more research on which would be the best cartridge for me and go from there.

    I'm with Ring on this. One other thing, to get good, you have to put in a lot of practice. The .243 will let you do that without developing a flinch like the stouter cartridges.

    my H-Bar is 1/7 twist and with 68gr i go out to 500 yards

    my rem 700 in 308 (Burris glass)was blue printed when my friend made 2 of them.
    it goes out to 1000 yards, sub 8" groups, when i do my part.

    not to undermine actimmy, but both are for sale locally though i'll be offering
    them with shipping if they don't sell soon.

    Well, I see that Tim sold my, er.. his 300wm. I found a good deal on the Remington 700 SPS AAC SD Tactical, .308win and grabbed it.

    I'm in the process of reinforcing the fore end and will be re bedding it in hopes of stiffening the Hogue stock up a bit. If that doesn't work I guess I'll be looking for a B&C or McMillan stock soon.

    Oh Yeah, the LRS1 had to go back to Bushnell for warranty work out of the box. The focus was inop.

    I almost feel guilty. Maybe we can all meet sometime and shoot the 700s. A few rounds down range will surely clear the air.

    Congrats on finding another fine rifle though!
