Rounds down range
Posted 12 November 2012 - 10:06 AM
100 yards, it gets a bit squirrely, but that's shooter not rifle. I have 0 accesssories on it to help me out in the accuracy department.
So, when I got to work today: it was Christmas !! I received my SWFA SS 10x42 scope, a steel springfield gen 4 mount (i know... sadlak or smith but this was 40% off... Ill give it a go) They sent with it Leopold mounts... and they are way not what I want, sending them back.
I have a harris bipod on order now, should be here by end of the week and that should do it for a while. Ill post a pic when i get it together.

Springfield aluminum mount. 0 issues, hasn't loosened or lost zero after 80 rounds through it. Seems very nice and adequate for the job, I have good clearance underneath for the iron sights, but it's work to get to them anyway with the cheek riser.
Speaking of cheek rests, the blackhawk one sucks ass... after 80 rounds it had worked itself very loose, and I had it very tight with a good knot. It's very hard and very square. I think I will go with either a Fulton Arms 3 piece interchangable one or..... I might be drilling holes in my stock for the plastic one. What do you guys think?
Harris bipod is money... very stable, very dependable, It's hand tightened and didn't lose any of its position during 80 rounds. Im glad i put that on it.
Accuracy is very good, shooing sub 1" groups at 200 yards with it. I won't be able to go to 500 until spring time.

I'd drill and put the kydex riser on the stock. It gives you the best cheek weld, but drops fast for iron sight usage. It was in consideration when I built mine. It's still a viable option on a later build.
