    A couple of shots on the bench with that is okay for me but the recoil impulse is too sharp for my taste without a brake. Would eventually teach me to flinch.

    Tested some loads on Saturday, got the Axis to .8 MOA with those RDF's. I'm happy as a clam. A .416 BC with that accuracy at ~2850 is close enough to 168SMK I don't feel left behind, so I think it's time to move her out to proper longer range.

    I just switched to an evopod from an atlas..

    They rock. Best bipod I've used yet (ive ran a harris, rugged ridge, and atlas the 3 years). The legs are super quick to change out and it's rock solid.

    Thanks, they are 12'' and 8''. Both are AR500 1/4'' thick. 1/4'' works great in terms of movement and sound for 77gr 223 beyond 400-500 yards. 1/4'' is also more lightweight than the typical 3/8'' for hiking in and out. Typically I'm shooting at 650-900yards depending on wind. Once I was shooting around 1000 but getting too few hits for it to be fun and moved up some. Wind is a thing apparently.

    Here it is getting knocked around with some 77gr TMK's at 831 yards. I wish this had sound but can't get imgur to do a clip with sound.

    Those EBR chassis are heavy pigs.

    I had one on my SOCOM 16 YEARS ago when it was in Vegas. The pistol grip and collapsible stock version.

    Its a nice solid stock. Just HEAVY.

    I've got a first gen Vortex Viper for sale. Mil dial and mil reticle. It's a 6-24x50 first focal plane. It's got a couple scratches, but they are cosmetic and don't affect the function of the scope.
    $700 obo.
