I had an inquiry today and I am no information and I thought of this group for educated comments.

Question

I am looking to attend some long range schools that will allow shots to 2000 yards.
My rifle is a DRD 338 LM Kivaari.

I need a scope and have narrowed it down to these four. What would you suggest?
1. Schmidt & Bender 5-25x 56 PM ll LE PRS or PM ll LP/MTC/LT .01 mill. Adjustments, DT turrets First Focal , Illuminated Tremor 3 retical.

2. Schmidt & Bender 5-45x 56 but not sure I like the turrets. Or I could wait for the PM ll Digital BT.

3. Nightforce ATACR 5-25x 56 Enhanced. 01 mrad first focal plane.

4. Nightforce ATACR 7-35x56 F1

Scope Mounts :
1. Spuhr mount. Unsure about MOA.

2.Geissele Super Precision. Unsure about MOA

Bipod:
1. Atlas PSR 4.75-9" with quick detach mount.

2. Harris HBRMS 6-9" and look to Badger Ord. For a replacement mount to attach to a picitinny rail.

Not a bad choice in the bunch. I don't own one, but know some that do, and they swear by Schmidt and Bender.

He needs to pick a scope, and read what travel it has available. Half is available on a 0 MOA base.

To convert MOA to Mil, divide MOA by 3.43, and you get the value in Mil. So a 20 MOA base is the same thing as a 5.3 Mil base.

Then he needs to go to a ballistic calculator and find out his worse case scenario environmental conditions elevation correction, for 2000 yards. Once he knows how far up is going to need to dial, he will kknow how much of an elevated base he needs to give the scope more POI up.

I like a Harris bipod better for prone, and an Atlas better for positional/ barricade shooting.

I would go with the 5-25x56 Nightforce ATACR or BEAST in a either a 9 or 13 mil cant with the atlas bipod. That is if money wasnt a issue.
