Marsh-- You might want to think twice about drilling and tapping your BPCR to mount that Unertl. In the first place, that particular scope is not legal for NRA BPCR competition if you want to shoot it in an approved or sanctioned match. In the second place, your rifle will probably shoot as well with a good set of irons as it will with the scope. I've seen about four different guys mount a good scope and find that their groups stayed about the same, with and without. In the third place--and here's the real kicker--if you DO get the rifle shooting lights out with the scope, the load ain't gonna shoot in the rifle when you take the scope off. The scope alters the barrel harmonics so drastically that it is a different ballgame without it. :roll:

On the other hand, if you truly have a vision problem and simply must use optics to shoot, go for it. Just don't expect your rifle to be significantly more accurate than a good set of irons, and realize that the rifle/load combo is scope dedicated. Shoot straight, rdnck.

IF YOU USE THAT SCOPE ON WHATEVER RIFLE.....DEACTIVATE THE SPRING THAT SUPPOSEDLY RETURNS IT TO BATTERY. YOU CAN DO THIS BY COMPRESSING THE SPRING AND LOCKING IT WITH THE KNURLED SCREW FOR THAT PURPOSE. MAKE CERTAIN THAT YOU HAVE THE SCOPE PULLED FULLY REARWARD BEFORE SHOOTING AND AFTER SHOOTING....REACH UP AND RETURN IT TO BATTERY WITH YOUR HAND AND GIVE A VERY LIGHT TWIST CLOCKWISE WHEN DOING SO! THIS ASSURES THAT THE TUBE IS TRULY ALIGNED AS IT SHOULD BE.

WHEN WE SHOT THESE SCOPES AT BENNING WE DISCOVERED THAT IF WE ATTEMPTED TO UTILIZE THE RETURN TO BATTERY SPRING IN IT'S INTENDED CONFIGURATION THAT GROUPS WOULD OPEN UP AT LEAST 1 1/2 TO 2.0 MOA SHOOTING OUR LONGRANGE BOLT RIFLES. DEACTIVATE THE SPRING....AND IT OUGHT TO PERFORM WELL!

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO YA!
