    Sightron Stac 2.5 - 17.5 x 56 MOA or Mil IR dot reticle

    S tac dot is 0.250 inches so it's really not much bigger.view one first if you can or order it and send it back if you don't like it.only go for illuminated dot not illuminated reticle.horrible things....! Too much illumination

    Sightron Stac 2.5 - 17.5 x 56 MOA or Mil IR dot reticle

    This was primarily for night work (lamping) maybe.ive never tried the illuminated dot lamping.its never occurred to me to try.being an S Tac to me tac sez tacticool and maybe for use on human size fig11 fig12 type military targets which maybe why the dot is bigger.go on sightron website or a site that has the reticles and compare the dot size measurements.i think my S111 is 0.188 on 32 mag.less than 1/5 of an inch.i can quite easily aim anywhere inside the 5 inch vbull at 1000yds.not sure on the maths but I guess that 15 dots would fit in the 5 inch circle.if the dot in the STac is 0.250 inches then I can't see a problem using it on any target paper,fur,hair or feathers.its not ideal for 1000yds small targets but good for your purpose 😁 Atb No I deer

    Opinions on Sightron scopes?

    This applied when they were using old fashioned equipment.jeez they need to move with the times.shooting red deer that have a huge kill zone.the kill zone for a munty is probaly 80 percent smaller where shot placement would be better done with higher precission with higher magnification scope.

    Opinions on Sightron scopes?

    I usually hunt on 14 mag then turn it up or down if and when needed.i would never buy a fixed power scope again. I've owned S&B's Swarovski's Mk4 leupolds but now i own 2 x S111 sightrons and a Mk4 that must say something πŸ˜‰

    Opinions on Sightron scopes?

    If your shooting varmints and larger quarry with one rifle your alrounder a good zoom is essential for precission shots.a fixed power is a good choice for close but reaching out all the mag you've got and more with the right application will be a much better suited

    I've not used above 32 mag so I couldn't of known that. I think the Next time I shoot in.mirage I will leave the mag at full if that's what the shooters do in hotter climates

    Big Al holds the british record 1000yds benchrest 5 shot group using a sightron so a Β£3000 scope won't make you a better shooter but will make you look good trying πŸ˜‰.nowt wrong with that either...!

    Scopes and miraging

    After a brief pm from another ukv member miraging was mentioned and he said some scopes cope better than others. Is this the case...? What scopes are known to be better shooting through the mirage or is there no difference....? I've never thought of doing a comparison. Thoughts please

    None. I've got 2 x S111 8-32 scopes.great scopes.moa 2 reticles which one is illuminated centre dot is on my hunting rifles.superb low light asset.when you lose a normal reticle the illuminated dot is brilliant.

    Scopes and miraging

    The mirage was real bad on one of my stages.i may of been 2nd stage at 900yds after 9 good shots I completely lost sight of my markers in the mirage.for some reason they were using the small ones about 1 inch in size.i had no I deer where my shots were going then.the Spanish chap who I shot with said I think your last shot my 14 shot was about 5 oclock 6 or 7 inches from centre.i aimed at 10 o clock at 6 or 7 inches from centre of vbull and finished with a vbull.damage was already done then.i think I had a 67/6. Next lot moved on and I heard one of them say he couldn't see the small markers.could he have the bigger ones.i wished I had asked.i thought you get what you get. Overall mirage was herendous.i shot on about 18 mag every stage.the 6th stage I started on 32 mag then sun came out.wound it down again.i doubt if many shooters would of shot without any mirage. Plenty of wind to move the flags. There was some superb scores posted over the 2 days by the FO open and FT shooters.theyre maybe a big ballistic difference but the scoring doesn't really show that much. Some stages I counted up more better FT scores than F open.....!

    Load development

    My 284 seems to shoot really well on warm loads but I always back them off enough that I didn't lose the accuracy.my one and only shot tonite was my 284 with 162gr amax load at a 475yd coal board pigeon and I smoked it 😁
  17. I've decided to sell my Mk4 for something with more magnification It's in good condition apart from usual wear on the turrets.glass unmarked.recently serviced and very little use since.a couple of McQueens COF's and a shoot or two on stickledown and century. Β£750 inc p&p or swap for a 32 mag S111 sightron with illuminated dot.must be good condition. Thanks for looking No I deer Photos via email on request.

    There is one thing does really pee me off is when my premium handloaded ammo gets beaten in a COF by someone using some factory loaded stuff πŸ€”πŸ€£.fortunetly it doesnt happen so often but it does 😴

    Load development

    Hi Al. I did work up to 56grs and past to see where my limit was then backed the load off.all my testing showed very similar results. In the past I've wasted so much time and ammo messing with 0.2gr steps working up.most shooter rifles run at very similar powder weights as I do my homework before I start.ive been loading ammo for nearly 20 years now so ive a bit of experience on this but still learning.i screenshot this on my phone for future reference.i tried 41.5grs of RS62 behind 139gr scenars and 140gr amaxs and they shot great loaded to same oals which were established with using H4530.for me no further rainbow chasing needed.

    Not sure on the scuffs.the only thing that could scuff it I guess is the extractor that could move on the blast.i doubt if it was a problem Nick.

    Load development

    you could run that load 2 to 3grs faster working up.maybe the extra velocity may take you to another and more accurate node.i would be surprised if you didn't around 56grs.the load in photo was warm.it also shoots the 180gr hybrids superb on that load but my barrel is 26 inch and it's not an f class rifle.its my alrounder. it's a 3 or 4 shot group and it's repeatable
  23. I imagine most of the 300wsm and 7mm saum shooters at the Euros used N165. I used H1000 as I bought 7 or 8 tubs as it was drying up.i mixed it all up to make one big batch.it shot well when the stock was riding the rear bag proper and stopped verticles.probaly have enough to last the barrel out.i have tried N165 my 7mm saum but opted for the extra bit velocity gain.i did check the throat wear before and after the Euros.it grew 6 thousanths over 130 odd shots
  24. Have a bump on me πŸ‘
