    so is that rear sight designed to be used with an appropriately milled out receiver? or was it a design or modification of your own?

    i guess more specifically, is this something that's "a thing," in high power?
    why so serious?

    Good question and I definitely will not pretend to be an expert on the matter because I’m am not. I’m been shooting the sport for approximately 3 years now and optics have pretty much wiped out irons for most shooters. But I believe the extra elevation is mainly a thing on carry handle sights to give the same height adjustment as an A2 rear sight. I think the ones sold by WOA and maybe CLE had the extended threads. The pins are to keep the sight straight throughout its entire elevation adjustment. They also used hooded apertures that accepted lenses to better focus the irons. I bought this one from a seller on the National Match website. I only milled the receiver to accept the sight.
    Hopefully someone will correct me if I missed anything.

    Here is a few targets I shot yesterday. I feel as though it could’ve done much better. The crosshairs completely blocked the bull so I was left basically trying to quarter the target. This was solely using bipod and shoulder, no bag. The bag pictured was too short so I ditched it. 55gr with ARComp seems to be a good load for it. The hornady 68’s with R15 seemed ok, but you can noticed my eyes burning out from the first group of 68’s to the last lol.

    I'd be happy with those groups, given the circumstances.

    I probably stretched it with the “much better” line lol. I am most definitely satisfied with it. Especially the 55gr. That’s the first time I shoot those from it. They will work great for their intended purpose of eradicating armadillos.
    It definitely outshot my capabilities. The 1-4 may be soon replaced with a 1-10

    yea... nearly 1MOA with iron sights, unsupported.. your rifle obviously shoots better than you do, and you obviously shoot well.
    why so serious?

    Yup, looks like it like the lite bullets. Good shooting buddy!

    Yeah. I have to agree -- on a target like this, obviously you win -- and the other guy's going to have a very bad day!

    Very nice build and pretty decent groups for 4x. I just cannot shoot itty bitty groups without more magnification and would expect your group size to shrink a bit with a 10X optic.
