Well, the Scorpion is winging its way back to Sig for the fresh cerakote and a few tricks. I asked if they can redo the slide black and the frame back to the standard Desert Tan so it'll look tricker and be a little more forgiving with the retention holster I use. It'll also be the only two tone Sig Sauer Scorpion 1911R Sig has ever done! In case nonya have seen a Sig Scorp...here's mine when I got it.

I am off to put some 22s through my CZ and 50 or so 9s through my 17. Wish me luck.

Came really close to buying one of those CZs yesterday. If it had been after payday I probably would have risked pissing my wife off

cost of ammo

i started a new job as manager of a wholesale nursery back in february so there's been no time for the range. i took 6 rifles and 12 to 14 boxes of hoarded ammo to the calverton range on sunday and i was shocked at the price of 5.56 ammo, $50. for 50 rounds.granted the cost is higher at the range but if gas prices are any indicator they go up quickley but come down slowley.if at all.

How did she shoot? I just picked up a 452 lux, pretty excited to try it out, don't think I'll scope this one, it fits like a glove with the iron sights.

This information is available in tables that Burris provides. They have the data on many hundreds of factory rounds. You can tailor to your liking or if you are loading, pick something close and adjust from there. They did not have the round I was using so I used the .338 Lapua lockbase bullet data as a starting point. It turned out to be pretty close only needing some adjustment beyond 800 yards. From there, point the scope at the target, hit the range button, it tells you how far, lights the appropriate aim point and tells you what the windage offset is for that distance given a 10 mph wind. You do the rest of the windage calculations yourself (i.e. if the wind is only 5 mph, divide the recommended offset in half). You can also set the parallax to the distance ranged and refocus before taking the shot (which I did). And the optics? It’s got a 50mm objective, a reasonably bright image even at full power (3.1 mm exit pupil diameter at full power) and even though they do not spec the tube diameter (due to no rings required for mounting), given the bright image and appearance it looks to be 30mm+. It’s as good or better than as any glass I’ve look though recently. In using this scope it doesn’t get much easier.

It works for the shooter that is. If you are standing off to the side of the shooter just a bit and even behind him/her it's like a stun grenade just went off. If you were standing off to the side of the muzzle within 5 or 10 feet it'd probably burst some organs. When I would get ready to shoot people would back off. The range guy said that's OK, we shoot big guns long distances here and if people don't like it they can go home. This range had boards to hang paper on at 25, 50, 75, 100 and 200 yards. Beyond that it was gongs and life size metal animals out to 1000 yards. After sighting in at 100 yards I could range and hit the gongs and animals easily out to 800 yards. Beyond that it was getting tricky. I ranged and hit at 880 yards but I was having trouble ranging at 1000. The animals and gongs were painted flat black and the scope will range deer at 800 yards but needs a more reflective surface out to 1200 yards. Still, I held over a "guesstimated" number of MOA and hit the 1000 yard gong. This gun is accurate.

I'll be trading the gun in though. I saw its big brother the 110 BA with it's adjustable cheek plate, adjustable butt stock, heavy bolt handle and pistol grip. I was smitten. I have to have it.

I love her but I feel like iron sites, for me, insult the rifle. I want to get a very nice scope for the rifle -- there are so many Leupold scope -- I can't tell which one would make the grade! Help! I think the 452 and I have mated for life, though the Varmint with a threaded bull barrel was stating me in the face -- I chose the iron sites (was that stupid?)

You can't "insult" the rifle. I've competed in 1000 yard matches with iron sights using 7.62 NATO. Think "Palma Match". One thing you will learn is wind doping, and this also applies to scope matches. You watch the wind flags and the mirage in your spotting scope, and apply corrections as necessary. There's plenty of time if you have to wait a bit for conditions. These are prone matches with no rest other than the sling. No bipods or sandbags.

Fucker runs great!
Almost 300 rounds down range, and nary a hick-up

Grease or oil it heavy. Mine ate the frame pretty bad.

Great guns. I love mine. The only real problem with them is the finish. It almost starts flaking off when they put it in the box to ship it. I gave up and took all the finish off my slide with a 3m scotch pad and now it looks cool. I find mines runs great with High Vel ammo especially with PMC Zapppers. Here's a pic of mine after TWO days! Look at the wear on the muzzle already.
