Ask Uncle Nick

You might think about a .223 Rem. as Winchester loads a 64gn bullet and OSA loads a 63gn bullet.

I recommend sighting-in 3 inches high at 100 yds for a 250yd. zero and drop of 4 inches at 300.

Parallax can be detected by placing crosswires on the centre of a target at say100 yards, and while looking through the scope, moving your head from side to side.

Of the many forces that affect accuracy, barrel vibration is probably foremost.

Give those varmints hell!

It was replaced by the Eklund-Ljungmann rifle in 6.5x55mm.

I've also used the 130gn Speer spitzer in my 7mm-08 with excellent results at ranges from 50 to 250 metres.

It appears that the .270 WSM has about a 150 fps velocity advantage over the venerable .270 Winchester.

I consider either one an excellent choice for elk and moose.

In 1986 Thompson/Center included it in their Contender line, both handgun and carbine.

For extended range conditions such as open country in the mountains or on the plains you should sight-in your rifle to zero at 200 metres or more.

Scope mounts pose no problem since the action is the Mark X Mauser.

It is a sloppy practice to fit Weaver rings in a 1913 rail because round recoil lugs aren't a snug fit in a square slot.
