Me and Li'l Bunny Foo Foo (my M-14) at our make shift desert range somewhere outside of FOB Bernstein during OIF II. During our train-up phase, I purchased a Super Sniper 16X with Butler Creek Caps through SWFA. I then mounted it with A.R.M.S. scope rings and QD base to my rifle.
This particular day we had set up targets at 100m (to confirm zero) then 500, 600, 700 and 1300 (for s--ts and giggles). We had a 12 mph full value wind blowing right to left and it was getting unGodly hot, like it always did during the Iraqi summers.
After confirming my zero, I dialed in for 700 and proceeded to tag the "E" type silhouette. I was able to place all my shots into the target including a head shot that would've facilitated instant flaccid incapacitation.
Once I had rezeroed when we got in-country, my rifle held it's zero despite countless firing solutions and jarring rides in my HMMWV. The scope adjustments easily put me out to 1300 meters using 175 gr. M118LR. I wasn't able to consistantly hit at 1300 because the rifle was only a 2 MOA rifle (that's my story and I'm sticking with it), but the scope definitely had the come ups to take me there.
On another patrol, we were overwatching a target area and I wanted to test my range finding ability with the mil-dot reticle. We tested it against our LRAS3 (Long Range Advanced Scout Surveillance System--a high speed laser range finder). I sighted in on a "haji" and ranged him to approximately 650 meters out. The LRAS3 read 670. I then ranged on another "haji" further out and came up with 1100 meters. LRAS3 lased him at 1080 meters. Needless to say, I was very impressed with the mil-dot system on my scope.
Since getting back, the scope found a new home on my brand new .308 Winchester M70 Stealth. I look forward to breaking in the rifle and doing a lot of long range shooting with it. I'm just waiting on my reloader to come in the mail (I miss having free match grade ammo at my disposal).
My next rifle (Rem 700 PSS) will sport the Super Sniper 10X on top. I just wish my freakin' per diem check would come in sooner!!
Hugs and Kisses for a great product!!
