Thanks Cheaptrick,
 
No, just am from NC originally.  I'd rather put that as my location than my current duty assignment in FL! 
 
11 years down so far and only 9 to go!  Hope to retire out of Fayette-nam, though!

Nice thread. Would like to add my recipe:
 
Rem 700 Police .308
Leupold variX II 3-9x
Harris bipod
 
42.8 grains of Vihtavuori N140 in a Lapua case (pre-formed; trimmed h 2.006; l 0.334) + Federal
all behind a Lapua FMJ-HPBT 167.3 grains (ocl 2.780)
 
Zero 100 = up 12 MOA at 600 meters 
 
Good fun
 
A+

When using a 10x on a 30/06 target rifle at 900-1000 yards I manage to recover from the recoil to see bullet strikes. It was tougher when I had a Unertl 15x but doable. If shooting at standard 1000 yard paper target I would go with 16 or more.

why did you need to resurrect a two year old thread?
