Randall also did the knob on my Remmy 700. Great work! Have him do the 3 screw bolt handle reinforcement mod while he is doing the knob.

Ill get some updated pics of my rifle up soon.

Real men don't use monopods.
We use a rear bag or a glove.

Monopods are too slow to adjust.

i use mine when ranging with the mil dot or just spotting down range for another shooter, or just keeping it standing up. Otherwise it is up and i use it to push the stock into my shoulder.

FINALLY got around to putting the finishing touches on her (all that's left is to take an X-ACTO to the cheek pad I'm going to stick on that hard plastic "cheek rest"- I have to cut out the area for the bolt cocking piece channel):

LMFAO!!!! Actually, I find one way works better than another, depending upon allotted time/circumstances. BUT, if it ain't 90 degrees VERTICALLLY MOUNTED, you're better off using a twig with dogs**t to glue it to the rifle with! (hence my method of using a setscrew to "shim" the base with, as you shall soon see!!)
I can tell you don't shoot on hills...
What happens when you have to raise or lower that bipod?
The angle of the monopod changes.
Don't become too attached to the monopod.

Being 90 degrees, perpendicular to the ground really doesn't make much difference at all. The rifle doesn't shift fore and aft, the point of contact on the monopod changes. It moves, not the rifle. I guess if you were to fix the monopod to the ground, it would then make a big difference. But for practical shooting, not really a big deal. And as Randall mentioned, changing the height of the bipod makes the monopod angle change anyway.

So, all that aside, you coming out to the next sac valley LR match? That sucker would rock at 1k.

Aw c'mon. Its just money. I think there were a few guys at the one we went to, Randall, shooting 338's. That would be killer at 1k. I just don't want to be on the line next to it. It might break my concentration a bit.

Its physics. Look at it this way. You're down behind the rifle. Lets say the monopod has a 10 degree angle to it. You want to adjust it out to bring your POI down. Slightly lift the rear of the rifle so that the monopod no longer has firm contact with the ground, adjust, reset the rifle butt down. The bipod and rifle have not moved fore or aft. Its only an issue if you keep the monopod dug into whatever surface you're on.

He has a floppy bipod.
If he was running a Harris, it would behave as your suggest.
He's got a versa pod or a clone and those have cant AND twist freedom, not just cant freedom like a Harris S-BRM or S-LM.
The twist freedom is letting his rifle pivot fore and aft.
It also keeps him from being able to hard-mount the rifle by pushing into it.

At one point, I had to pull out my t-shirt and wipe the water off the lenses of my scope before I could see through it.
It was Xtreme...(crosses pinky fingers in an X)

When I got home the next day, I blew the water out from under the scope caps and inside the turrets.

You are assuming my experience(s) are with the equipment shown in the pictures I just posted.

Are those cannelures on the .338 rounds? You can see some lines encircling the projectiles, just above the case necks...

Im no longer using that stock. I picked up a AICS.

Getting the angle of the monopod paralell is a moot point IMHO. The angle changes when you raise or lower the monopod. (just realized others have already made that point)

Howa 1500 .308 I bought off a fellow Calgunner. Nice trigger already, Ken Farrel 20 MOA scope base. Have a 10x Super Sniper scope that should arrive anyday that I want to mount using Warren Tactical scope rings. Next will be a new stock, prob B&C, also have a Harris 6-9" bipod that I'll use once I change the stock.

This poor rifle still needs a scope. I'm thinking Bushnell Elite 3200 10x.

In that price range, consider a Nikon Buckmasters 4-14x40 with side focus, mil-dot reticle and target turrets with 50 MOA of available elevation travel.
You will want to change out your base and rings to something with 20 MOA of elevation built-in as well.

Or better yet, a Falcon Menace 4-14 FFP

Falcon Menace was first on my list but unfortunately it has gone out of my price range. I've heard that unless the rifle has FFP, only the highest magnification will be consistent with the mildots, not sure if this is true?

I'm pretty sure that the Nikon is a better scope than the Falcon, even though the falcon has FFP.

FFP means that the reticle stays the same size in relation to the image so you can mil at any power.
This is a huge advantage to be able to have your holdovers and wind holds work at any power.
However, the reticle gets really thick when you zoom in so they tend to not be as easy to use on high power as an SFP scope.
The Nikon is SFP and mils at 12x.
Most mil-dot scopes mil at maximum power, that's why you don't want one that's too powerful.

The fixed 10 power is a real drag because the field of view is very narrow at 10x.
The field of view at 4x is much better for shooting from various positions and engaging multiple targets or moving targets.

Randall, the Menace FFP has gotten a lot of great reviews on the hide.

That's fine.
It's still not a Nikon though.

No.
It has caps over medium height turrets.
In use, just leave the elevation cap off.
The numbers are easy to read from behind the scope.
I leave the windage cap on because you should not be dialing windage.
You should learn to hold for wind.

I have the Nikon on my 22 and I shot it a couple weeks ago in a match where it rained really heavy on us.
I blew out the water from inside the turret when I got home and all seems to be fine.

Something to cosider:
When choosing a scope, mechanical reliability and optical clarity are much more important than features and gimmicks.
I'll take a reliable scope with a SFP reticle over an unreliable FFP anyday.

Not sure if this still applies today, but here is an announcement from June:

Experience is key. Like I said - NO WAY, as far as I'm concerned would I EVER see myself as an "expert." Hell, I've been in the shooting sport for over 2 decades. Been handloading for, oh, probably close to 7 - maybe 8 - YEARS. .....And I've just started to begin giving help / tips over just the last 2 years.!!! So, I'm flattered that you have been thinking all along that it is ME who is the "seasoned expert" (), but it's going to take the better part of a lifetime before I even come close. Food for thought. -wheather one actually "eats" it is another thing entirely.(more food for thought). Regards,

Ok. I still need a few things(bipod, better glass, ladder rail covers), but I finally feel comfortable showing off my 6.5 Grendel build.

Mega lower
AA billet sidecharger upper
AA 24" medium heavy SS barrel w/ matched bolt
PWS comp.
PRS stock w/ 1" A2 extension
Ergo grip
DPMS railed forarm
JP adjustable low pro gas block
Barska 6-24x44 Swat Extreme Tactical 30mm Scope(I'll upgrade soon)
Burris extra high XTR rings

Don't flip out. The gas system is turned off. This is a bolt action rifle.(you know... NOT a semi auto centerfire rifle w/ evil features)

So true. Get one of these instead.

Almost 7 and a half weeks after ordering it, I finally have my upper. White Oak Armaments 26" 1 in 8" Varmint Upper with CMMG Mod4SA Lower, Bullet Button, DPMS LPK, Panther Style grip, and A2 stock, 1" stock extension, Harris S-BRM Bipod with t-nuts.com podlock, and Leupold VXIII-LR 8.5-25x50 with Varmint Hunters Reticle. I wont be shooting it until Thursday after my Brownells Modular Flattop Riser Mount comes in on Tuesday. My rings aren't quite tall enough for me to get a decent sight picture without it. I ordered a 3/4" riser and a 1" 20MOA riser to go with the modular base.

Very nice. Very BLACK & chrome/silver (the two coolest "colors" on the planet!). I dig it. If I were you, though, I would definitely get that scope backed up quite a bit. You want your turrets to be as centered between the rings as humanly possible. Right now, the clamping force is uneven & it's putting undue stress on the fore section of your windage/elevation adjustment housing.
