Thanks! But check the barrel price first, they are currently through the roof and 200% of when I got in to Blaser.My daughter would like to know the music you use at the beginning of your older videos at the beginning. She says she could do a program for figure skating with it, especially with the gun shot for the ending.
Thank you for the music.Thanks! But check the barrel price first, they are currently through the roof and 200% of when I got in to Blaser.
The music is "Will you follow me" by Tiny Music and I put audio from both a hunt and a shooting match at the end.
Pretty much this. #4 is the most important to me. If you successfully offer up this combination, I will have a safe full of them.Here’s the recipe-
1). Mid power 3 or 4x in the low end, 12-16x on the high end.
2). 30mm, 42-45mm objective.
3). sub 24oz weight
4. Specifically designed and built to stay zeroed through impacts and drops.
5). Locking or zero stopped low pro elevation turret, capped windage designed and built for consistent and repeatable use
6). Front focal plane, Mil/Mil with a reticle that is specially designed for low and high power visibility. Cut to the chase and use the THLR reticle from @THLR
7. Large, forgiving eyebox, large FOV if possible.
Then take that scope and actually test them versus the “tests” that everyone does, before placing on the market
You can buy the LRHS-2 through GAP.Just copy the discontinued 3-12x44 LRHS. Bonus points if you can build a sub-20oz version w/ ED glass, without giving up durability & reliability. Maybe add illum for guys who want it.
I'd buy several. There is basicly nothing currently being offered that occupies this niche.
Yuppers. But I strongly prefer the 3-12. And not crazy about the added throw lever or that they ditched the capped windage.
Any changes to that for the LRHS-2? From what I understand, they pretty much just swapped the glass.
If I could get a sub 12-14oz reliable, durable, 3-9ish scope that didn’t dial but had an MOA or MIL reticle for holdovers and wind holds, I’d buy several. No weird BDC reticles. Scopes built to dial are heavy and a lot of folks don’t want to put a 30 oz scope on a lightweight mountain rifle. I think most of us could do just fine under 500 yards with what I’m describing.Ultralight reliable sub 12 ounce scope

I am still working to get my head around mine - but - it's clear that it's a reticle that pushes through into helping you make quick decisions and quick shots.As a dull fun-fact I can offer some background for that reticle. It was privately financed and put on the market by myself (I see no money from the sales).
That reticle is not made to sell. It is made to kill with speed and precision as it supports decisions compatible with system 1 thinking (reflexes or simple decisions like 2+2=4). It is not for everyone and with limited input I'm pretty sure it's not perfect either. So it's not something I push in it's current state (i.e. no adaption to perceived market need).
- First edition was an uncompromising shooters reticle: Try and engineer a more direct link between training and the decisions needed for a killing shot, regardless of range and magnification. For lack of a better explanation, I wanted CQB (not a good description) and precise LR shots to stay on the same "decision line", no separate drills. If you want background, Daniel Kahneman (psychologist/nobel prize winner) wrote in "Thinking Fast and Slow" about how the mind works, espescially in high stake situations.
- Second edition (as seen in this post) polished some dimensions and implemented the standard MRAD format, but no commercial/market adaptation was made.
What do you want in a rifle scope that you either don't have now or aren't seeing on the market?
