I went with the Vortex PMR Lows. They are the same as the Seekins Lows. I am using them with a Vortex Viper PST Gen II 5-25X50 without issue. Still had to use a stock pack to raise the comb up a bit for proper eye alignment.

After having some issues with my APR Kryptek Mountain Rifle in 7mm08 and sending it back, I got a quick update from Robert that the issues had been corrected and he was waiting for the rain to quit and range to not be underwater so he could do some shooting.

Yesterday I got this pic. He said this is the first time he's seen a rifle shoot Winchester factory ammo under a 1/4" group. I should have it in my hands this evening.

Even though I had a rocky start with APR, it looks like they took care of everything I was concerned about.

That thing is funky cool for sure. Let us know how it shoots. I don’t rifle hunt much but I love my 300 WSM!

Very nice. Is that an Alan wrench taped to your stock? What's up with that?

Good eyes!

I topped the gun with a Leupold VX-6HD and you use the allen wrench to adjust the zero stop on the scope. On my way to New Mexico I went to the shooting range to get dope out to 600 and didn't want to forget the allen wrench if I needed it. I forgot to take it off for the hunt.

Any issues with the turret adjusting correctly and returning to zero? I sent my VX6 in to have the CDS ZL2 installed. Supposed to be ready in a couple weeks. Have heard people are having trouble with the adjustments, but some also seem to have no problems. I hope the issues are from people that are constantly dialing (competition type, long range target stuff). I wanted a lighter hunting scope than the NF, SWFA, Bushnell type scopes that I could zero at 100 and dial up to 4-500....if needed.

I have haven't had it on very long. I have ran it up and down to 600 yards (about 12moa) maybe 10 times and haven't notices any problem returning to my 100 yard zero.

Finally got load work done on my youngest sons APR that was ordered about the same time this group but took place.

140g Accubonds right at 3150. Group 1 @ .186 followed up by a .298.

It’s more accurate than I am!
