Spot asked Has anyone shot out of the remington 7600 pump action rifle, and can they tell me how good it is?

I want to use the Remington pump action rifle for pig hunting in scrub at close range, and in open areas where I may need to take shoots out to 250 yards. Are they accurate at long distances? What size scope would you suggest I fit to this rifle, which would be suitable for both applications? Which caliber?

And got the following answer:

I think 250 may be stretching the range a bit on a pump, but then again you will need to do some range work on a target to see how she (and you) shoot at that distance.

Since I think you will wind up with a realistic range of under 200 yards, I’d suggest a fixed power 4x or 6x scope like the Weaver Classic K4 or K6. You get what you need for that range distance and you also get a lot better optics than a variable power scope in the same price range. Most people don’t need variable power scopes anyway.

No one ever regrets getting .30-06, however .270 is a fine caliber as well.

Brian V asked What kind of scope would you recommend for a Saiga 308, with a 21″ barrel?

I understand that this is NOT a target rifle, but I’m hoping to eventually be able to score combat accurate hits with this gun at medium to long distances at the shooting range. I think it’s capable of putting together a decent pattern on a 14″ target, at maybe 300 yards or more with the right scope on it. I just need some suggestions for the right scope. Any advice, or better yet. Do you have one of these rifles, and if so would you share you opinion of it as a distance shooter?
Thanks in advance!

And got the following answer:

A fixed 4 or 6 power scope will work fine, you won’t need anything more than a 3×9.

Jimbo123 asked How do I hold a rifle steadier when shooting standing up?

Every time I try to aim, the scope hairs are shaking all over the place. Are there any ways of stopping this, possibly drills to help my hands and arms get steadier.

And got the following answer:

First of all, you have to be in better physical shape than most people to shoot well standing. Work on that. Walking at least 20 minutes a day, each day, will get you there with time.

Turing the zoom ring to its’ lowest setting helps loads in early shooting with a scope. Reduces scope jiggle. Limits scope movement. Same with shooting with a low power -fixed power scope.

Placing your body with the foot forward opposite the shoulder butt stock rests on with attached trigger finger is good.
As is resting your weight comfortably balanced on your feet spread comfortably apart.
Plan on moving body slightly forward from your waist for shooting your firearm.
And plan on having only to move your body at your waist to adjust for center scope reticule on target.

Having your body placed squarely in line with target takes little practice And that is the one crucial step I purposely left out.
Practice this by lining up your body as described above. Do not turn at your waist to line up with target. The only movement of your waist allowed is to adjust for vertical travel to put scope reticule on bulls eye. Close your eyes as you place firearm in shooting position. Remember. Do not turn at your waist to line up perfectly with target.
Open eyes. Take a look see. If your scope reticule is not exactly at bulls eye on target, but to one side, reposition body toward that side. Get comfy. Close your eyes. Lift firearm to shooting position. Open eyes. Check see if scope reticule is perfectly lined up with bulls eye. If not keep repositioning your feet until scope reticule is lined up perfectly each time you raise your firearm to target.

In this position, you are ready to practice shooting in standing position. You are a shooting machine. Perfectly positioned, firearm centering on target each time you raise your arms!
Now all you have to do is practice your breathing and trigger squeeze to hit target right on!

Holding your arms outstretched for a long time aiming is not good for accuracy. Aiming/viewing through an iron, electronic or scope sight tires the eye. Six seconds and longer is just long enough to tire holding a firearm or trying to view through sights : both make for poor accuracy. Plan on squeezing the trigger before six seconds. If you go past that time, lower firearm and take a few breaths, look at something, relax a moment and do again.

Why so much emphasis on placing your body with sights exactly in line with bulls eye? Repeatability. Muscle memory. Habit. Shooting posture.

Your body is balanced, more at rest even with muscles tensed some. (remember the good physical shape thing). The only movement is for you to raise or lower firearm to center reticule on target. Turning at the waist causes your body to become off balance.

This also trains you to shoot your prey animal when hunting only when it is at rest, not running. I have always been told hunters who shoot their prey when it is running do so out of desperation, trying to injure/down /or kill prey animal without to much damage to edible meat before it runs away! The one sure mark of a poor hunter, stalker, poor wood-outdoor craft, technique,etc. With the only defense a sheepish or brash boast…”i shot the thing while it was on a dead run…” and try to make it sound so heroic, manly, sports manly, or shootingly expert…or something. Even publish their apparent poor hunt procedures and desperation shot(s) with a boast about their shooting skills. Go figure.

Editorializing aside. Youngsters and other just beginning shooters can be trained to shoot with both eyes open with all types of sights. Only the one eye open/one eye closed group has trouble doing this. Habit. Muscle memory. There is those words again.
Shooting with both eyes opens up a whole world of awareness and safety in front of and to the shooter!

And shoot comfortably. Limit shooting/practice to until you begin to tire, get miffed, or loose interest, or shift focus elsewhere And shoot with a firearm that has low cost per round and low recoil and blast noise.
Once you get the basics, switch to the thunder-boomers to fine tune your skill.

jake asked Does the US army sniper units use a bullet drop compensator in there scopes?

I am looking into building a tactical rifle and was wondering if the army uses them. Because if the army uses them they must be pretty accurate. I am looking to buy the rifle scope through nightforce or leupold.

And got the following answer:

We currently field the Leupold Mk 4 LR/T M3 10×40mm first focal plane fixed-power scope with a mil-dot reticle.

Staap It asked Are modern variable power rifle scopes accurate over the entire magnifacation range these days?

I own only one old Redfield Widefield 3X – 9X on a .22 mag that is variable.

The reason I did not purchase a variable is because it used to be a variable powered scope’s point of impact changed often with a change in magnification selected. Is this still the case in your opinion with today’s modern variable powered scopes.

Thank you in advance, for your help.
oooops, showing my age. This was fixed decades ago ? Guess it shows how many Leupolds, and Unertls, and Lymans I have had laying around all these decades that needed a rifle. Yeah, now you all know I am a hoarder, so embarrassing.

And got the following answer:

I had fixed-power scopes back in the sixties, too, because the variables didn’t keep the reticle centered across the range of magnifications. But that got fixed decades ago, so if you get even some of the cheap ones, you don’t have to worry.
You’re apparently showing your age.

Bill B asked What is so interesting about deer hunting?

I don’t get what the big thrill of dressing up in camo, putting on bottled deer urine, climbing into a tree stand and shooting the deer with a high-powered rifle with a scope is all about. It’s not real hunting….any real man would hunt a deer with his bare hands and if he could kill it….then he’d be a real hunter. Rifles are for pussies.
Even using a knife or spear…that’d be better. At least you’d learn the actual “hunting” skill that would be required if you were ever in need. I mean, after all…if you get lost somewhere how many high powered rifles with 300 yard scopes will be laying around? Be men goddamnit….strangle the deer and then eat it’s bleeding heart.
Yikes, I always thought deer meat was really dry. I don’t mind the jerky though.
And yes I have shot a deer before, and I thought it was really lame. I was there with my cousin in our tree stand and it just walked right out and I shot it. It was far, but with the scope I hit it right in the neck. The meat tasted like crap and gutting and skinning it was far too much hassle. If I were to hunt for meat again, it’d be at the grocery store with the rest of the people that have common sense. But to you folks that think you’re preserving some “hunting tradition”…….good luck to you and your deer (that odds are you’ve been baiting and luring for months now). Maybe he’ll just fall over for you!

And got the following answer:

In that case – You should know all about rifles!

Excellent inexpensive meat.
Let me know which store you can get 100lbs of 98% lean steaks for around $25.

If it tasted bad – you didn’t fix it right.
It’s lack of fat makes it taste different.

Also – if you go for the biggest, oldest deer (with a big rack), you’re not going to get quite as good of the meat’s as you do with a smaller 1 or 2 year old one.

Bill Spry asked What are those scopes like the military uses on combat rifles?

Are they mandatory for all soldiers at all times? Is the quality extremely high? What power are they fixed or adjustable? Can you easily hit targets at 600yards or more?

And got the following answer:

All our Infantry use 4x magnification optical sights on our L85A2 assault rifles and they are mandatory only for our Infantry and a few certain other units.
Effective range with only iron sights is 450 metres (492 yrds)
Effective range using the SUSAT optical sight is 650 Metres (710 yards)
These are only the manufactures accuarcy specs and obviously is dependant on many factors but as you can see, by simply using an optical sight over a iron sight you can increase accuracy by a fair amount

Brandon asked What is the best .308 WIN hunting rifle with a pistol grip stock?

I am looking to buy a moderately priced hunting rifle chambered in .308 WIN with a pistol grip stock. I really like the “Marlin XT-17VLB,” but it is only chambered in 17 HMR. I love the quality and fair price of Marlins, and I looking for something like that.

And got the following answer:

Savage rifles are known for excellent accuracy and value.

How about the Savage Model 10 Precision Carbine?
Weighs 8lbs, 20″ barrel. It’s available in .308.

I have the old Remington 700 VSSF in .308 Winchester.
It has the older var x in 6 power with 42mm objective.

This scope has excellent light gathering capability (42mm). The target is much sharper and clearer than the leupold variable 2.5-8 power fitted to the .338 Win Mag.

At 365 meters (400 yards) I can still see the target clearly. The best groups I have made that far is about 2.5 inches.

Consider a fixed power scope. With variables, the more power you have, the less light it transmits to the eye. Also as power is increased, the eye relief will decrease.

That means the head/eye needs to be closer to the scope with each increase in power to maintain sight picture.

With 6x power I have plenty to reach out to 300+ and low enough to shoot at 40 meters. With any fixed power, you can use the cross hairs to judge distances to the target or animal.

I have variables on other rifles. I keep dialing them to 4x or 6x. I think that is the most useful power range for 90% of hunting.
