So a buddy offered me a Boyd's stock cheap enough that I could mess with it and wouldn't feel bad if i ruined it. It seems to have turned out well. The front rifle is my short 6.5creed now in a wood stock with magpul bottom metal. Then the scope I had on it was just too heavy, so it needed a new one. It got a Burris XTR-II In 2-10x. So I moved the Bushnell ERS to my big 6.5 in the ax chassis, then the E-tac 6-24x moved to the the 700 AAC 308, and then the Lucid 6-24x landed on the 700 in .223. The 3-9 that was on it got stashed.
I think I'm happy with all of it now, I think. The problem is now I have to zero all of these and it's hot as H E double toothpicks outside. Truly a fat man problem!
So, has this ever happened to you?

Thanks!!!
Matt

I've shuffled a few scopes in my time, but for other reasons...and then spent a day on the range getting everything sighted in again. It's a good thing since I like to shoot!

I do this all the time. Doesn't bother me a bit. I especially enjoy zeroing great rifles in two shots.

Yup, FiremanJG. When I grow up, I want a place like yours. The indoor load development station is BRILLIANT!!!

Yessir. I've wanted that for many years. All of us that hand load can tell stories of load development taking a whole month to complete. In 5 hours, I assembled a freshly barreled rifle, did load development at 200 yards, then went and got DOPE on it to 800 yards. That's handy!

That facility will be available for day lease very soon.

The very best reason, IMHO, to have rails on all of your rifles! Well done. P_102
