Rapid fire capable .308

Straight stock layout? Check. Battlecomp muzzle brake? Check. This RFB didn’t rise at all on firing. The SWFA scope also helped: unusually for a 1-4x, it’s a front focal plane design with a twist: at 1x, it has thick cross-hairs and a small illuminated circle in the middle, at 4x the cross-hairs are not visible but the milradian-calibrated fine crosshairs become visible in the middle of the enlarged circle. The optics were very clear, so I became an instant fan.

The rifleman? He organized the Bullpup Shoot at Rockcastle.

    Great shot, great rifle, great scope, great muzzle brake…

    Why not one of your better looking models?! Oh wait, I know that guy…

    Maybe I’m missing something, but why would you describe “first focal plane design” as something distinctive? I can’t think of any other way to implement a crosshair.

      Alright, the scope can “zoom” from 1x magnification (no magnification) to 4x magnification. In many scopes, the crosshairs do not change when you “zoom” with the scope. In a scope with crosshairs in the first focal plane, the crosshairs get bigger when you “zoom” in.

      In this case, the crosshairs are big, thick lines with a small circle in the middle, with tiny crosshairs inside the circle. When the scope is zoomed out, the shooter only sees the thick crosshairs and circle for fast aiming at large or close targets. At a higher magnification, the shooter no longer sees the thick crosshairs, but instead sees the (now much larger) circle and precision crosshairs. look at http://swfa.com/images/ss_donut_popup.jpg

    Wish I had known – I would have brought out the Mosin Monstrosity.
