B. Lahey,

Don't you think that scope in the video needs more rings and knobs?

At Gunsite's Precision Rifle school, they had us fire at a popper at a lasered 748 yards. That's how I found out the 168 grain Sierra MatchKing out of a .308 starts tumbling at about 700 yards. One to the right, then one to the left then all around the town. None at the crosshairs. I only hit it once, but nobody else with that ammo could do any better. The sight picture was good, though the target was a sniper's silhouette popper and far from ground hog size. The 8" center is perfectly hitable at that range with good ammunition.
