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.


It is far more important to be able to hit the target than it is to haggle over who makes a weapon or who pulls a trigger.

The only negative thing is that I would like to reverse the mount to fit a buis.

Well, the other negative aspect is that I don't have a can for it.....yet.

Itís not a long range round. I own one. Even your 308 doesnít need it.

Need is relative to the end user. In my case, I have the choice of 3 scopes. And they have these top magnification choices 20X, 21X, 25X

I'll repeat myself, 800 yards sure is easier with it.

This is Texas, a guy can put as much scope on a rifle as he wishes.

He's talking about a round that could benefit from a higher powered scope. I was specifically talking about a 6.8. Thing is though, even that much scope would be overkill. His deal is that in every thread regarding shooting; he somehow has to insert how good he shoots even if it has nothing to do with the subject. I don't care that he shoots 800 yards, and that it's easier. We get that you can shoot.


Too much scope can actually hurt shooting. He has too much scope on his rifle that doesn't shoot a round designed for long range.

Some people do not have the spine to admit they are wrong, and walk away.

I am not inserting how well I can shoot, this is a discussion you decided to have about a man's scope, you are passing judgement on. Well, he didn't ask your damn opinion about his scope and several people have come to his aid, against you. This thread is about a rifle and you're making it be something else.

Iím not wrong though. Heís using too much scope. His build is terrible. He has a stupid high power scope on a shorter barreled rifle, chambered in a mediocre range cartridge. Some people have no business assembling rifles.
