George, if you put a Picatinny rail on it and use Medium height rings, you'll have more flexibility with ring selection and when positioning your scope. That is the way I set up my Vanguards.

Optics / Re: Zeiss CONQUEST V6 3-18x50
« Last post by HighDesertHunter on Yesterday at 01:56:11 PM »

Went into town for a VA appointment and stopped over at Cabela's on the way home. I had plenty of time and so did the clerk so we went through a lot of different scope options. I kept coming back to the Zeiss when it came to clarity and light. We took it outside and it looked just as good.

I went with the 3x18x50 with the ZMOA reticle. I found I liked that one the best. They had the 5x30 but the field of view wasn't there so I opted out. I bought a set of Warne Quick Release mounts for it so I can swap it out for the night vision ATN Opmod scope if I want. I'm not giving up on the ATN but I do feel it's best suited for nighttime use.

Hey guys,

Has anyone had the chance to try a silencer for the 6.5x300? I shot a couple hogs last week but wasn't wearing any ear protection, and WOW. The blast from the muzzle break blew my ears away... I'm looking to buy one that would also fit a 270 wby mag. Anybody have any recommendations?



Silencers do work but you need to keep in mind that the sonic boom when the bullet breaks the sound barrier will still be present. The best and least troublesome way to go is with reactive hearing protection. There are several types available and they work well. I use them at the indoor range so I can hear what's going on around me but the gun shots get muffled. Last I checked (two weeks ago) it was taking 14 months to get a stamp for a silencer.

Buy one for the 270 and use it on the 6.5-300 too.

That looks like a great show Doug. Would sure be fun to attend. I see where some here buy from Reeds but I had no idea they were Northern Firearms.
