    Thanks for sharing PB, please tell me about the level that you have mounted and do you feel it is helpful enough if I normally shoot out to 400 or more useful beyond that distance?

    Inside 500 yards I wouldn’t be too concerned about rifle cant. I would skip it the level and bang away. I run US Optics levels. And prefer the folders. PB

    Depends on the bullet flight/arc. You can chase your ass at 1000 yards if there's a different cant on the rifle for each shot.

    When we have buddies out to shoot with us, Pappabear is the trigger slap Nazi, and I'm the Scope level Nazi. I told a guy I was just going to put tape over his level since he refused to check it and it was driving me nuts to watch it not centered.

    3.5x55 ACOGs have the most forgiving eye relief out of them all! I personally prefer the LED versions of the 3.5 and 4x32. User adjustable brightness and if you’re lucky, you don’t realize you set it on its brightest setting and get a free LASIK procedure.

    The LMT MWS already weight 97 lbs. so the weight isn't an issue, but 3k for a COG would be troubling.

    It’s like putting a 1911 on top of your handy MWS, what’s not to like. I have never chased military rifle clones, but I would like to shoot one and see how it performed but for the $$$$ it ain’t going to happen. I also wonder with the 3 ft over bore, how useful that RDS they used would work.

    A lot of shit out there I would like someone else to buy and let me play with. Kinda like a boat.
