well i finally got home to take a look at my savage 110 7mm rem mag .
hill country rifle accurized & then mounted it on a new richards microfit sporter thumbhole in autumn leaves. along with a new zeiss victory diavari 2.5-10x50 illum #60 reticle in 2nd image plane.
WOW!!! this rifle looks great. they did a great job mounting it.
the zeiss scope is smaller than the nikon monarh i had mounted before. waited for the sun to start going down . side by side both scopes glass looks great. but the closer it got to sunset the better the image was with the zeiss. when the reticle got hard to pick up on the zeiss. i turned on the illuminated reticle. AWESOME !!!! WHAT A DIFFERENCE. im glad i decided to go with the illum ret.
did notice difference in weight of rifle betweeen the laminated stock & the previous synthetic stock.
was only home for 1 day which happen to be opening day of rifle season. but didnt get to hunt. i stripped the stock & got out my palm & orbital sander went outside & started sanding it down. boy did that save some time. only part of the stock i hand to sand that was rough was parts unable reach with sanders. then worked stock by hand with 150 & 250. wiped down w/hot rag to raise grain twice then resanded both times w/250 not much cme up the second time. gotta remove some wood on the grip,still feels a little bulky.
ahd to get back on the road today gotta load going to tulsa. will finish stock with tru-il while on road. cant wait to get home next week. remount rifle & get some shooting in.
will post pics when i get a chance.
can you believe the idiots maintaining the easement for the electrical company came thru 2 days before opening day cutting down trees & brush hogging. a few people will be getting an ear full on monday.
