Does anyone have any pictures of your scope and gun setup. I'm interested to see what these scops are looking like on everyones gun's. Or if you just have a picture of a sweet setup you have seen before and want to share it with us.  Post pictures...drop a line....tell a story...etc.  

 

Thanks,

Brady

There's a new sheriff in town and he's armed with a .50

 

This is me one weekend....I got bored and thought it would look funny to hang out the window.

The barrel actually goes all the way down to your shoulder. Notice the bolt is all the way at the back of the gun.

It shoots pretty decent. I managed to shoot a few rounds in a 5" radius at just over 1,000 yards.

Not out of that deer stand of course.

 

 

Thats some nice looking wood on your gun Tbone.

Here is my Ruger 10/22 toped with a Simmons 44 mag. I threw a hogue stock on it to make it look lean and mean. Was thinking about putting one of those kidd triggers on it, but they're a little pricey. Don't really want to spend close to a grand on a .22.

Anti Mesquito Twin 10/22 Gatling Gun

 

Move aside Rambo....I like to go all out when I shoot .22's. So when I saw this for sale I had to get it. I usually go through about 10,000 rounds when my friends and I decide to unleash the beast.

Our targets usually involve anything thats worth turning into swiss cheese.

If anybody can top this I would be surprised

a little bit more.... the rifle weighs aprox 16 lbs and has a felt recoil similar to a .308.... when i shot it it was zeroed at 400 yds. I hit a rock about the size of a mans fist first shot at 335 yds. (laser range finder) and never lost my sight picture. I believe it was wearing a Nightforce 32X with double custom stainless rings. The stock is anodized aluminum.

Looks Good

 

Yeah good point.....there's nothing I hate more than not being able to stay on target.. I developed a bad habit when I was a kid by lifting my head up real quick to see if I hit my target. I still shoot the same guns that have the same recoil, but have fixed that habit. Although I still can't see what i've hit it helps with my accuracy by staying in the scope.

SAKO75,



Please tell me thats a .375 H&H..... that exact setup in a 375 is in my opinion the ultimate hunting rifle... tho I'd have the stainless toned down a bit.

Opppps.... In my earlier post about the .338-2.5-50BMG.... well I checked my notes, and it weighs 7 lbs. more than I stated, so it weighs about 23 lbs. It was the single most impressive rifle I have ever seen and that particular prototype was purchased by an un-identified buyer for the US government.

Actually the most labor intensive part of the process, according to the builder was forming the brass.... he said that he had over two hours into each case before the intial "fire-forming" . At some point in the process he had to fill each of the cases with parifin wax and freeze the cases with the wax in it to prevent the cases from colapsing during at least one stage of the re-sizing process...

And they wonder why the good ole USA is the leader in the arms race???? LOL [;)]

It's not a gun or a scope but it sure is a SWEET SET UP.  I thought everyone should know what Brady's other deer stand looks like....in case he tries to tell ya how rough he has it.

Why did you take the satellite dish off it?

How do you like that 700 Titanium? How about the recoil and modifications to it?I've been thinking of getting one chambered in 260 and having the barrel shortened to 20" but I haven't heard many reports about them.
