When you are dead, you don't know you are dead.It is difficult only for others.

It is the same when you are stupid.

Nothing too fancy, Leica er 2.5-10x42 (4a reticle) on top of a 700 mountain rifle chambered in 7mm.08, Timney trigger. The sling is just a simple Browning x-celebrator, maybe not the most comfortable to some... but I carry my rifle much more than slung over my shoulder and find itโ€™s very quick to adjust sizing for different situations when needed.

The scopes are all Kahles gen 3 K 624i.  Two have SKMR2 and one is a SKMR3 reticle.

The rifle on the left is a Remington 700 trued action with a Hawk Hills 1:7 twist .223 cal barrel.  I shoot Berger 80.5 FBT at 2960.  I use it for some matches that don't exceed 800 yards and practice.  The ballistics are almost the same as my 260.

The rifle in the center is a Surgeon action with a Bartlein 1:8 twist 260 barrel.  I shoot Berger 140 VLD at 2800.  This is my main match rifle.

The rifle on the right is a CZ455 .22 cal Varmint Precision with a Silencerco Spectre II suppressor.  This is the rifle I shoot in my backyard training range.  My distance is limited to 120 yards.  I have steel targets hanging from shepherd hooks that vary from 1" square to 2" x 4".  I practice position shooting from a barricade, barrel, table, golf cart, AC unit and anything else we can come up with.

Thanks gents! I appreciate the fact we had a lot of participation this month! That is encouraging!

Now I just have to think of a topic that will inspire as much participation as Mike's did!
