    Looking for 300 win mag ammo

    This is correct. Most are. This one is not. Thanks for the vote of confidence too. I was the person who shot the 2 rounds from each box. Which is how I know about the ammo.

    Looking for 300 win mag ammo

    I know a guy that has 3 boxes of Barnes 180TTSX ammo with 2 shots from each box that were fired for testing. So 54 rounds left.

    FPS Data

    If you have a 100 yard zero, are you sure about being 1" HIGH at 200? That does not sound right? And what round are you shooting? A sampling of 6 shots is a little low for factory ammo to get a true ES/SD. That one round that is 50fps slower than the rest could be a fluke...but then again, the 5 that were within 20fps could have been a lucky 5 rounds that were close. I have seen, quite often, 50-120fps ES in factory ammo.

    Scope Opinion NX8 vs VX6HD vs V6

    Wind holds. I almost always dial for elevation. The only few times I don't is on a moving target that is within 200-350ish yards. Like when I jump a coyote. But windage, I never dial. I hold off. Not needing to be on max, or exactly half max, is beneficial. I rarely hunt with a scope on max magnification. If I am still hunting, or spot and stalk, I am usually on minimum or close to it. I would rather have a wider FOV for quick target acquisition or return to view after a shot. Meaning, a FFP scope will keep wind holds true, no matter the magnification. A .5MIL hold will always be a .5MIL hold. Whether on 3x, 7.7x, 10.5x, 15.4x, or 20x. I don't use the reticle for ranging. As far as MOA vs MIL, just a different unit of measure. As explained above, 1 MOA is 1.047" @ 100 yards. Or .262" each 1/4 MOA click. Quarters or halves are easy. 1 MIL is 3.6" @ 100 yards, or .36" per .1MIL click. Not quite as refined, about an extra .1" per click adjustment. 10ths are easy too. A lot of guys I shoot with run MIL. But not all. Here is the kicker with MIL over MOA. There are WAY more top end scope and reticle choices with MIL than with MOA. Because a lot of the top tier scopes are European. Meaning they use metric system, which the MIL is based on (CM & meters). Here in the US, we just convert to .36" @ 100 yards, instead of 1CM @ 100 meters. There are even scope companies that do not offer MOA based scopes. Zero Compromise Optics (ZCO) is one. Look at S&B, and they will have 10 MIL based reticles to 1 MOA reticle. So if you want to go with a true top tier European glass, you will look long and hard for an MOA scope vs a MIL scope. So learning MIL makes a lot of sense in the ease of finding a scope. Some high end "MOA" scopes, are using "1/3 MOA" turrets. Meaning they are actually MIL, but labeled for the guys who have to have MOA scopes....Swaro Z5 line is a prime example.

    Scope Opinion NX8 vs VX6HD vs V6

    Depends on if you want FFP or SFP. That will be the determining factor. If you want FFP, the NX8 is the only scope on your list that fits the bill. I am a FFP MIL guy, so the ONLY one that would get my consideration. If you want SFP, I would go, in order: NF NX8 (tracking, mechanics, build quality, glass is still very good, parallax is a slight bit touchy, but not bad) Zeiss V6 (glass is the best of the bunch, turrets are decent but not as crisp as the NF, I have only shot behind a few, so not sure how the tracking and durability compare to the NF) A distant third would be Leupold VX6 HD (actually not even considered) The glass on the Leupold is great, weight is nice, but I have seen WAY too many tracking issues with Leupold to consider one for my own use. Even if you went Mk 5, Mk 6, Mk 8.

    Bruno's had VV N565, 8 lb jugs today

    I got an 8#er of N570 too.
  12. Probably just extortion by non-LEO or not authorized personnel. If it would have been "mandatory", someone would have been cited if they said "no".

    Primers

    Any shipping info? You should have some info at least. I ordered some primers from another retailer on Wednesday, and they should be here tomorrow.
