Scoped BPCR

Post by Marlin38 » Mon Jan 13, 2014 7:29 pm

Gday all, I have just aquired an MVA scope for my BPCR. Im using a 40-65,420g saeco pushed with 52g swiss 1.5. How much elevation would I need to get from Chickens to Rams on this new modern fandangled thing?

I shoot a Browning .40-65 BPCR with a scope and Paul Jones Creedmoor 420gr bullet at 1200fps. Rear scope mount setting is: Chickens .060", Pigs .090", Turkeys .115", Rams .160". Since my scope mount spacing is 7.2", the .100" of elevation adjustment equates to 50 MOA.

Thanks, went over to a shoot last weekend, 50 min worked out just about perfect. Just for fun I shot my BPCR rifle with the scope in the highpower silhouette match with there 2.5min time limits and all off hand. Was very happy shooting a 17/40 in the first match and 13/40 in the second. Beat a whole lot of these guys using modern guns and this unusual powder that makes no smoke.
