  2. For our MARS matches, we shoot between 25 - 300 yards. Must guys run similar scopes to their PRS rig, so 6-24 is normal. I'm currently running 4.5-27. I don't think anyone worries about the bottom end of the zoom, because we don't have multiple close range targets like in 3gun. 4-6x is fine. The extra high end is useful for matchstick type stages or zeroing, but it's not totally necessary either. The one feature that can impact shooting is how low your parallax focuses down. I think 25 yards is minimum.
  3. 36.3oz specs here: https://www.eurooptic.com/Leica-PRS-5-30x56-i-PRB-Riflescope-51300.aspx
  4. Looks promising. I couldn't find a price though. https://precisionrifleblog.com/2020/01/21/leica-prs-5-30x56-scope-with-prb-reticle/

  6. Use your 22LR upper to compete in precision rifle rimfire matches. Great training for centerfire.
  7. Not sure if they still do it, but I've gotten a barrel and matching bolt from White Oak.
  8. Hoping this will be a reliable alternative.

  10. Understood. I’m looking for a do everything 2011, so the P might work for me.
  11. Doesn’t the Staccato P start at $1999? How do the P and the Edge compare? I’m just learning about 2011s.
  12. I'm in a similar dilemma. I'm liking the 2020 Staccato P Duo, but should I go custom instead? Anyone know a custom maker that does something comparable?
  13.

  14. I'm waiting for the Bergara B 14 HMR (Hunting Match Rifle). I like a traditional stock and a lighter weight. I've called a few dealers and it seems there is no anticipated date for arrival yet.
  15. Thanks guys. I'm leaning towards return the Vltor upper to brownells. I have not decided on whether to exchange it for another Vltor MUR or return it for a different upper. Opinions? Anyone have recommendations on a high precision upper?
  16. I'm trying to build a precision ar15 so I got a 20" WOA barrel and a Vltor MUR upper. Both high quality parts according to my research. The issue is when I insert the barrel into the upper there is some play. It slips in very easily. When it is in, there is a little rattle when the whole unit is shaken. The barrel nut has not been installed. I have never experienced this in the 6 other ar-15s I have built. Is this a problem? Will this effect accuracy? Should I shim it or use Loctite? Should I exchange the upper for something else? I have not torqued the barrel nut yet, but I'm assuming the rattle will go away when I do it. I was just wondering if that little bit of space will negatively effect the rifle.
  17. I recently discovered that channel. He seems to do a good job, but I don't have much experience. How legit is his info? ***EDIT - nevermind, I saw the other thread
  18. I'm trying out the Taccom Duaload Belt Line 16rnder because of the price. I believe you can attach tek-locs to the system, so there seems to be the same flexibility as the cabon arms. We will see when I actually receive them. The website said 2 weeks but I asked about my order on facebook and they said it would be going out today.
  19. MSA Sordin Pro IV. I had the Peltor Tac 6S and the Sordin's are far superior. First off, they are very comfortable. I can wear mine all day and not really notice them. You can also get gel pads for them which many people rave about. I may try these because mine pads are wearing out due to use. Second, they have very good sound. The clarity of the amplification is excellent. This becomes very important if you use them with foam ear plugs when indoors or around lots of machine guns. No single hearing pro is enough when lots of people are shooting indoors. Third, they have excellent battery life - 200 hrs on 2 AAA. Finally, they are very rugged. Pat Rogers, the military trainer, recommended them to me for their durability. Most of this, though, is subjective. But I do believe they are considered one of the best in the market. They are super expensive, though. I waited for a group buy to get mine. Be careful going by NRR ratings. I find they are not that accurate from company to company. Got ones you can afford and are comfortable.
  20. It is on my list to call them but easier to do a quick request here and see what I get. I will advise what I find out. You motivated me to do it tomorrow. Jay Did you ever find a retention holster for the sp-01?
