Re: Scope for M14
those scopes arent built for that kind of abuse.. And how the heck are you staying on target for 6-8 rounds anyway? Thats full power .308 bro!! even if it has some magical new muzzlebreak its gonna rise off target after 2 or 3. The M14/M1A gas system and rotating breechbolt design is heavy and long in operation and generates far too much vibration for scopes to hold zero under full auto fire. I dont even think a 2500 dollar nightforce would handle it..
Im really curious how youre keeping on target though.. I dont think its possible short of bolting the rifle down to a steel bench.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.

After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
