    Finished my light setup for the Barrett REC10: Surefire Scout M600DF mounted with an Arisaka Defense Offset MLok mount. The Surefire ST-07 tape switch is secured with a Cloud Defensive LCS mount. ⁣

    Went to test various ammo with the Barrett REC10. While most looked like 2moa, I ran the best grouping through the Ballistic-X app. Norma 168gr SMK HPBT achieved a 1.16moa.

    Rifle: Barrett Rec10 .308
    Optic: Vortex Viper PST 1-4x24
    Suppressor: Crux Nemesis30
    Range: 100yds ⁣

    *I placed the ammo in matching order of the target.

    Very nice. Do you think you could get more accuracy with more than a 1-4x power scope?

    Yes, more glass will help me a lot. Also more trigger time.

    Took my 6y/o son shooting and with the little time between him shooting and being bored I snuck in a quick grouping. Added a Harris bipod and my WiebadGear bag. Federal 168gr SMK... That flier was me.

    Well, I had been waiting for Primary Arms to release their SLx 1-8x24 FFP ACSS Raptor optic since July when I heard it was being produced. Than surfing FB I saw MrGuns&Gear had a link to the scope with a free mount or rings (Click Me) and PA had a "Save12" 12% off the entire store. So I wasted no time placing the order. With the First Responder discount as well, I was able to get this optic and mount for sub $400! It arrived Saturday and was able to get it mounted.

    First impressions: Pretty solid and clear glass for a sub $500 (MSRP) scope! At 1x the reticle acts as a red dot when illuminated. The reticle is etched so you don't have to have it illuminated. Between 2x & 3x "my" eye can start seeing the ACSS reticle and hold-overs. At 8x the reticle is big and bright (like the stars at night).

    Now I still need to go out and zero it. PA manual says to zero 1" high at 100yds with M80 147gr/168gr SMK .308. So we'll see how accurate the BDC is using 168gr SMK.

    Went and zeroed the new PA 1-8. Full review in the Optics sub forum.
