My first 6.8 SPC. Wanted something semi auto, different, and something different to mammal hunt with.

Bushmaster lower with a Timney
Model 1 6.8 barrel
Cheap bolt and carrier
Anderson upper receiver
Vortex Viper 4-16x44
http://www.blackgunswood.com furniture
misc parts from Midway

Was a fun build. No time to shoot coming up.

Uh ok.....

You put a ridiculously high powered scope on a gun that shoots a not-so-long-range round, and has a fsp in the way. Not well thought out.

I don't find the scope to be overly powered for this application.

The front sight is not visible in the reticle.

Looks nice. Glad you used that wood furniture, every time I see it in the classifieds I think about buying it.

The scope may be a bit much for a 6.8 but if it works, and especially if he already has it, is it a problem? FSP in the way? Have you looked through a scope with post still in place?

A 4x scope is "ridiculously high-powered"? loco

So the 5-20X on my LR-308 is way too much?

800 yards sure is easier with it.

And we've run a 6.8 SPC to 700 yards on my range with several customer's rifles.

What constitutes "a not-so-long range round"?
What is wrong with more zoom? Some people like shot placement.
