Finally.  Got to the range with the newly mounted SS 10X on the Rem 700 Tac 6.8 SPC. 

 

OUTSTANDING.  I zeroed for 200 yards.  It took a few rounds to dial her in.  Point here is that both the rifle and scope are way more accurate than I am.  No surprise there.  But was getting some good groupings.  Some within a nickel at 100 yds.  But I am not that consistent.  Then after the zero, adjusted the target knobs back to zero readings.  I will re-verify ASAP.  I put 40 rounds downrange.  Shot some steel plates.  Had a blast.  I started with Remington 6.8 SPC 115 gr FMJ.  Then ran a box of Silver State 6.8 115 gr FMJ.  I could not tell any difference.  Both rounds are great.  The Silver State is less expensive, so I may stick with it??  I have 120 rounds of Remington to blow thru. 

 

Next is range determination lessons using Mil Dot Master...which I haven't bought yet.

 

The SS is the bomb!

Well, after lurking and doing research on the net, I just ordered a rear-focus 10x42 Super Sniper myself.
