Well guys, its been a long wait but I finally have my 223.  Here she is.
That isn't the hubble mounted on top but close.  Its a ATN Profesional
6-18X65 with Illuminated Reticle.  The new Shooter Demoing the gun is
my grandson Aiden, 7 months old.
 
No No  My Blue Bird of Happines is still on strike.  When I turned to put the camera down Aiden
pushed over the rifle and the damn front ring broke.  It was only finger tight for the photos so I don't thing it should have broke, but break it did.  So now I gotta see if I can get a replacement.
 
 
.
Sometimes I just don't like God's sense of humor!  Right now it sucks to be me! Sad

Thanks Mike!  Grandson's a cute little turd, always happy!
I am enjoying the H#ll out of him!
 
The rings came with the scope (30mm) and 6 cams for the range finder.
6 different calibers to choice from.  This is the scope that kickboxer offered to the mafia before putting it on teh 458Lott list.  I have no idea how many guns it has been on.  It has only the faintest of ring marks on the scope.  With the long slot in that side of the ring it is obviously a mechanical weak spot.

Doesn't take long for the little rascals to get into trouble.  Many years ago got off my snowmobile to roll up the garage door and foolishly left my young daughter on it with the engine running.  Next thing I saw was the skis' coming through the door.  Luckily no one injured.  Must have taken all of about 6 seconds.

Nice rifle Bud. The rings should have been able to take more punishment. At least if she shoots all over the place you know where to start looking! The rings.
Hope it shoots well for you!

They are QUICK little bugers ain't they?  I was sitting right there and just turned and leaned over to put the camera on the coffee table. 1 maybe 1.5 seconds was all. Clown 
I think he was waiting for me to look away.

Thanks Wouter. I agree, the rings should be able to take much more abuse that that!  ATN supplies everything with the scope, which is nice.  I need that offset foot on this ring or I will have to go to a piccatinny rail to get the necessary clearance needed.  The turret assembly is longer than most cause of the built in BDC.
 
It's driving me crazy to have to wait to shoot the new stick!  I have about half decided to pull the Vortex Crossfire Mil-dot off my 308 to use.  I hate pulling off a scope once it  is dialed in.

ALRIGHTY THEN..... Lets try this again!
 
After a few weeks delay ATN sent me (free of charge) a new set of steel rings with lateral adjustment capability on both and 20 MOA offset bushings.  The rings are HEAVY and TALL, but give me all the adjustability I could want!  I only wish they weren't so Tall, that 65mm scope sits way up off the barrel.  Other than that they definitely do the job!
 
 
Here is the stick with the the Scope remounted!

OK, now let's see those target pictures (after shooting, of course)...
 
Nice looking rig.  Don't know how I missed this until now... perhaps being in Az.  Very cute grandson.  Looks like he will be a great help in future endeavors, as well.

I used tall steel Millet Angle-Loc rings on Weaver bases on the Voere, never used the rings that came with the scope.  I left them in place on the Voere to mount the Diavari.  Zeroed in one shot. 
I think the rings ATN sent you will perform similarly to the Millets.
