This is a shameless- self promotion post of my bench and rifle.
First, shout out to the woman (whom some of yall have met). Thank god she ignores what I do on things like this. i am totally proud of this work bench.
Second, here is my rifle finally complete. Shout out to CDI Precision. They totally did the inletting for free on my blind mag stock. it cycled perfectly for all the 60 rounds yesterday.
I am now totally sold on my SWFA 3-15x42 scope. The FFp was a nicer feature than I thought. Although I am not quite as sold on it as some of the higher end shooters on here are. My favorite feature actually turned out to be the mil reticle to mil based adjustments. i was literally zeroed in with just 2 shots. the 2 shots ended up on the bottom of the paper. So I measured it on mils with the reticle on the center of target. Dialed exactly those mils (3mil up and 1.8mil right) and it was perfectly on point. After that, i thought I was having a great shooting day and the rifle feels great.
Now all I have to do it teach myself how to shoot this rifle at distances better.
