Scout Project

The Scout project is moving along nicely.  The brown truck of happiness came in yesterday while I was at work and when I came in long after dark, I decided to open the package and mount the new optic.  In about half of an hour I had it mounted

That's the Burris 2.75 Scout scope with Leupold medium rifleman rings.  I hesitated when I ordered the rings, because I didn't know if the medium would be too high, but there is barely a 1/32d sliver of light under the ocular end of the scope.  I think I ordered exactly the right height.  I get a good cheek weld when I shoulder the rifle and the crosshairs are bright and clear.

I'll play with it more today when I get off work, but I intend to sight it in this weekend, weather permitting.

Can you see the iron sights with the scope mounted? From the angle of the picture, it doesn't look like you'd be able to.

Nope, when the scope is mounted, the front sight is obscured.

Nice! And that's a sign of experience... LOL My luck, I'd have ordered the wrong ones at least twice... sigh
