I might actually go deer hunting hunting this year so I went to the club on Saturday. I figured I would shoot the M700KS in 30.06 I got from my brother since I haven't taken anything with it yet. I have a Kahles 1.5-6x42 on it in Talley QD mounts. My other 700KS is in 7 RM with a Kahles 2.2-9x42. I really like these discontinued custom shop offerings.

I was using Hornady M1 ammo with the 168 gr A-Max. It was raining with some 20 mph gusts. It was still fun and I was happy with the results. Oh, the club had North Peak IPA on tap too.

Good shootin' Doug. Sounds like the 19th hole was good also!
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.

Thanks guys.

I have gone through the offerings at SWFA and see the Kahles C is still available in 2.5x10x50 http://swfa.com/Kahles-25-10x50-Helia-C-30mm-Riflescope-P77375.aspx. This is a really good thing because it is a premium scope for only $1399. When I look at the Zeiss and Swarovski offerings in this class, they are far more expensive. I now have four Kahles 30mm tube scopes and I think they are awesome. Too bad they only come in 2.5-10 now.
