At least we will be on paper right away and we can stretch it out to 600 at the range. I was very impressed that we were only a few MOA's off with both rifles. I still have to figure out how to use these Milletts. I plan on reading the manual on the flight out to NM to visit my step dad and give him his AR10.

I also loaded these in the SKS duel case. I was a little sad at first because they are so large that they don't fit in the case all in one piece. I had to split both of them to make them fit.

Southwest has a 50lb weight limit before they start charging for the baggage. With the AR10s, and my Ruger LC9 the weight came in at 49.6lbs. Cutting it close there. I hope my bathroom scale is accurate. If not I'll just stick one of the lowers in my clothes bag.

Based on the picture do you think the neighbors would freak out if they were peeping in on me seeing how I bore sight in my weapons? I have a spot 25 yards out that I put a bight florescent sticky dot on. I then have to take off the screen from the bedroom window, and raise the window so I get a clear view with the laser bore sight. I pull the curtains back juuuusssstttt enough to see the little dot outside. A few minutes later were are all sighted in.

If you weren't a gun-owner and saw someone aiming out of a window with a high-power rifle emitting a laser beam.....................................

/step-stool? I hope there's no noose hanging over the bed out of frame....

That is hilarious. Is there a Phone Booth you could sight you rife in on? That would be cool. We would have a part two...

Does anyone else think there's a big differance between 25 yards and 600.. To think you're gonna be on paper because your sighted in at 25 yards is a bit of wishful thinking don't you agree?

Of course I agree with you. There is no way we will jump from 25 to 600. We will take it slow. 25, 100, 200, ect, ect, take lots of notes and eventually get out to 600.

just remember that with a scoped AR zeroed at 25 yards, at 100 yards you'll be hitting something like 6-9" above point of aim. Depending on your targets, that could easily be off paper.

Remembering that might save you a few bucks worth of ammo at the range, if you were'nt already aware :)

ETA: I'd sight in roughly at 25 yards (three rounds, adjust, three more rounds), then immediately dial down 6MOA and move to 100 yards to get a real zero. Or 50.

I do 100 yard zeros for long range on my buckmaster mildot.

Good points. I'll remember that. Thanks.

A buddy at work has one of the laser sights that actually sends the beam from the bullet. The one I have fits from the end of the barrel, but the brake is so long I think it's barely touching the actual barrel. I might get her bore sighted in at 50 yards just to save some time. Hope the neighbors do not mind using the side of their house as a reference point :43:

I'll keep you guys posted and post up some pictures of the experience.

On nice thing is that I built one of the AR-308's for my step dad, so he is supplying all the ammo for our trip to the range. He has 200 rounds so far. I told him we will need more :p

haha I made darn-well sure to be far back in the room, aiming at a roof with no line-of-sight to a position someone could see in through.

I think the only thing that might make that rifle look more Bad-*** would be a PSG1 style pistol grip ;) (the one with the palm rest)

I agree. With the Harris Bipod BR-S, I have to be careful not to let the AR.308's fall over. Might have to upgrade to the palm rests in the future.

Better bring a chrono and Kestrel (or equivalent) if you want to build a good dope sheet.

I agree I'm praying for zero wind. One can hope (both fingers crossed).

All loaded up Calguns for the trip to NM. Pray that Southwest doesn't lose or damage the SKS case. These AR-308s are big and heavy. Had to split them to get them to fit in the duel case. Came in at 49.6 lbs. Just under Southwest's 50 lb limit before they charge extra. Bringing the LC9 also to practice for my CCW permit in May.

Wish me luck!!!!
