X3

I’ve got a Leica Scope for the TBH build and a Sphur Mount for my AR build. I was in the process of finishing out my AR when the TBH build came up. I’m now going to have 2 uncompleted builds

I hear you. I had mine twisted specifically to shoot the 150g SMK’s and all of a sudden Sierra is having QC issues so I guess I’m back to Hornady.

And mine (outside of group build) is in the mail

I got a Leupold VX3 LRP with 50mm objective. Do I need medium rings? Probly going with Seekins, or ARC.

Everything in the pic I have bought on sale so far. Bullet choice for me has come down to two, but you aint getting me to post which two

I have another build due in July or August from WTO, unfortunately brass and dies for that one have not been on sale anywhere.

Med is what you will need on a Remington action, I am not sure about the Curtis. I actually got lows to work on one rifle but it is so close that slip on scope caps won't even go.

I hate to here Sierra is having quality issues. Is it a process flaw or a new owners issue?

The vx-5 has other reticle options. Personally I won't get a non-illuminated scope anymore, but I do know what you mean about the reticle itself.

Rumor has it that the 5hd will get some additional reticles around may as well as some other small options. I really want the 5hd with the illuminated 6hd varmint hunter reticle. until then I guess I gotta keep saving.
