Did I need to order extra parts to pillar bed? Sorry, I am a stock rookie and just learning. The truth is the factory stock is very nice but does not have an adjustable cheek piece like the McMillan. I will probably use both. The factory stock for any hiking shooting and hunting and the McMillan for all the range and distance shooting.
the McMillan will probably be lighter weight. I have one on my 7mm remmag and love it.. the pillars are an option on the mc millan stocks. you can get them separate but you need to do some modifying to the stock in order to use them.

Measure atmospherics.


https://kestrelmeters.com/products/k...ied-ballistics

This one includes ballistic calculator.

Or get this one then add inexpensive ballistic calculator app to your cell phone.

Update. I checked again using your pennies idea and my calipers and I think I get it down further with medium high rings.

Nightforce 34mm Ultralite 4-Hole Picatinny-Style Rings Matte Med: 0.334"

I have a 56mm objective.
That sounds right

Great ideas. I ordered a data book (sniper kit) from Storm Tactical. I keep standard notebooks but want to learn how to do this right with a precision rifle. I have always wanted a Kestrel but $$s. That will have to wait on the suppressor. Rings on the way. Now, to load up some more ammo and study glass bedding videos. I should be able to get this scope right down close to the barrel.

You can probably look into this ballistics program. It's old but it's the most accurate one that I have found so far. It's the old night force program for a PDA. They don't make it anymore but you can still find them. It's made by exbal. The reason it's so accurate is that it adjusts your trajectory in the field. For example you load different ballistic coefficients for the different velocities a projectile will encounter along its path. Sierra publishes it's bc's on their website. It changes as the bullet slows so you enter their BC data and all the other typical data for temp, altitude, humidity, predicted velocity etc etc.
When you get out and shoot at different ranges you enter what you had to correct to for a given range and hit calculate. It changes the ballistic data to match what your round is actually doing.
For example, when I entered mine, I zeroed at 100, shot at 300 and entered the correction, shot at 500 and entered the correction, shot at 700 and entered the correction, shot at 900 and entered the correction and hit calculate. It changed my velocity to 2666 from 2720 and the original BC. I can dial in any time throughout the year and location and it's dead on Everytime... As long as I enter the correct atmospheric conditions of course.

I would get the Kestrel before I get a suppressor. Don't bother with Kestrel that has the ballistic calculator as there are very good, inexpensive, ballistic calculator apps for cell phones. I use the old 4500 with an old HP iPak program from Night Force.

I have a good ballistic calculator on my iPad and iPhone I have been using now for about four years. It is called Ballistic AE. I am missing a good atmospheric tool like the Kestrel. I understand your comment but I want my suppressor sooo bad. I actually had one ordered and paid for and the guy messed with me so I had to ask for a refund after six months of waiting. We will see what wins. For now, I need to get my rings and get this gun shooting again. Midway USA was great about sending the NF Unimount back.

As long as your shooting 300 yards or less Weather meter or anemometer is no big deal. If the suppressor is that important to you, I guess repetitive precision past 300 yards can wait.

You guys are enablers for sure.

Kestrel is on order and I might also order my suppressor depending on how my week goes this week.

Thanks for being fellow gun enablers.

My rings should be here Thursday. More pics then.

Val your in the wrong place if you want us to suggest rational thought especially when guns enter the conversation. You totally set yourself up for this credit billing cycle.....

Thanks from SteedGun
