    Took a while I know @Ground Control
    Very happy with it at this stage.
    Only put 12 through since new scope and was very happy with that.
    Dont think I could go any lower without compromising my eye relief. Can see in one pic how close the mag ring is to the base.
    Cant wait to start reloading and developing a load for it. All i'm after is a rig for 10-400m.

    Yeah I like the look of it. I could get lower with other ring/bases but it feels good as is.

    Agreed, I think some get hung up on how close they can get the objective end to the barrel. Its mint. Will keep ya posted with how it goes.
