I got out to the range this morning, despite some typical Montana spring conditions (40F, snowing and blowing). After the work done on my Rem. 5R I wanted to try it out. At the 100-yard range, I was pleased to see that despite having it bedded and the scope unmounted, the POI had only shifted 1" right and 1/2" down. So I had it re-zeroed after a second shot and fired two more just to get an idea of the accuracy. Seems to be a bit better, but it was already a sub .5-MOA rifle.

What I was really itching to do was to try out the Atlas bipod on the 300-yard range. Because of the weather, I didn't really feel like setting up paper so I just shot at the 3" gong. The Atlas stock rubber feet rotate so I couldn't really load the bipod on the concrete pad. But it didn't matter. There's a lot less hop than with the Harris. I was able to follow up through the scope on every shot and never missed...something I wasn't able to achieve before, even under easier weather conditions.

I got to talking to the guy down the line from me and he had a couple IORs (fixed 4 and 6X models) so I got to have a look through those. We both liked the Premier better, especially since the 6X has a yellow cast to it. But I though the IOR glass was really nice and noticeably better than my NF.

Thanks for the report Jon,I've had my eye on that same pod for my 5R.Can't afford it just yet as I'm putting the cash together for the new lite tac Premier.I have a Zeiss 4-16FL on it now,so when I get the Premier & compare the two scopes side by side,which ever doesn't cut it will go onto my Rem 700 Police!
