  • The Bushnell Elite line has excellent value.

    The low-end magnification of 6X makes using the rifle on targets within 100yds rather difficult.

    Some solve that problem by using a "red dot" sight offset at 45°.  Others solve that problem with a 2.5-10X.  Other solve the problem by delegating CQB shots to a spotter. Still others judge that 25 or 50 yard shots are so unlikely that they make no special provision for such near shots.


    An example of an offset dot sight using a Spuhr mount:



    The Spuhr mounts are top tier. Besides their precision and diverse accessories, I like that they incorporate a bubble level visible while in shooting position, hugely important in XLR, since even 1° of cant will cause a miss at distance.



    Had no idea you could cant a red dot; never occurred to me it was possible!
    That is THE solution to the magnification/CQB shot issue

  • This may not be directed at Extreme Long Range Shooting, but definitely Long Range Shooting.

    Being able to reach out and punch gongs at 1000yds on a rig whose entire cost is <$900, that ain't too bad.

  •  His looks and speech style remind me of Dan Akroyd's Bass-o-matic commercial.

  • Maybe.

    But when he can hit a water bottle at ~1100yds, I'm buying what he's selling...

  • That Mossberg actually looks to be better quality than the $200-more-expensive Savage "Axis" (the Axis stock looks like Tupperware).

    Another way to go is to buy a quality used barreled action and stock on Sniper's Hide in the PX section: http://forum.snipershide.com/#snipers-hide-post-exchange.20
