Got it all mounted up. Between the already low cheek weld and the high base i decided to build a adjustable cheek rest. hopefully i get some time tomorrow to shoot it :bthumb:

waaaaay too far from scope centerline to bore centerline for me

what's the purpose of this mount?

it has 5 settings that you can set anywhere from -5 to 110moa

seems really unnecessary to me

especially on a .22LR

Some may think so. I have fun plinking out to 500 yards with my .22lr, this mount should make it even more fun. Think about holding croshairs on target at 500 yards!

Only on a windless day or indoors

No wind makes it alot easier, there have been days that I have hold up to 10 feet for wind

Its alot of fun and not as hard as you may think

I was thinking that looked goofy, but after you described what it did i see the point. If i ever get around to building a suppressed rifle (and moving to another state :s ) ill have to get one of those.

Went shooting today, the new target is fun, Hit the small one a few times, the bigger one is not as hard to hit as i thought it would be. it was fun. I have the VGM set up to hold right on at 500 yards. works great!

also shot some groups with cci sv. all are 5 shot groups using front bipod and rear bag. laying in the dirt lol.

50 yards

I know that mount seems weird, but check out his videos shooting 100 - 200 -300 - 400 and 500 yards down that canyon. Fun !!!

At those ranges down that canyon, scope height above bore centerline is meaningless. But if it ain't your cup-o-tea just pass on by.

ants, this mount is going to be sweet for that. in those videos i was using just the old tasco scope. lol now i can go from my 50 yard zero to 500 yards with out cranking the scope dial. takes about 1 second to change lol. once i get it all figured out I will make another video

I had a set of literature on that mount from probably 20 years ago, I did not know they were still being made.

It would work well on a flattop AR where you normally need risers on a scope anyhow.

Clayne, couple of guys are putting the VGM's on their specialty pistols and compete in LR matches with them...and do very well against the rifle guys, so...keep on truckin' man!!

U know what u need to do is to get a ground squirrel with that rig of yours at 500+ yds. Now that would be reaaalllyy cool Man!!
