I got my new scope mounted to my M1A Scout a couple weeks ago. It required pulling the action from the stock to put the mount on. And as most everyone knows, it is recommended to shoot these (and M1's) to "set" things back into place after taking it apart. I put about thirty rounds through it right after putting the scope on and today I thought I'd fine tune things.
I used the first target to fine tune the scope, then moved on to the second target. I was hoping for a better group on the second target, not that I was taking my time or had my good rests out, but I'm thinking this is as good as I'm going to get after the barrel warms up. I found some pics from March when there was still snow on the ground using a non-magnified red dot and was able to place more rounds in the bull. I'm thinking that was a factor of it being colder. The Mtac I had on 4x. If I recall they are both 3MOA red dots. I know the Fastfire III is anyway and this seems similar. I really like the option of 1x to 4x though. And the reticle shows up as black when the red dot is off, so it's still functional if the battery dies. I'll have to find a longer range to test out the bullet drop system it uses. It's what they call their Ballistic CQ if you want to go to Burris' site and see what it's about. It's certainly a more rugged optic than the Fastfire was.
After shooting the Scout again I've decided to take a look at the trigger and see if I can smooth it out. It feels rougher than some of my Finn Mosins and I don't think shooting it is going to help it get better. Maybe that will help tighten my groups some. Or maybe shooting something other than Portuguese ammo might, too. I don't reload .308 yet, but will soon.
