    Remington 700 adl varmint/.308win/ Leupold M8 4x

    I can see at some point that the Magpul stock wonít stabilize the action for the longer shots. Once I reach out past 600 - 800 Iíll reward myself and get a new rifle. With mdt chassis or something like that.

    Yeah I see that too. Gonna look at the 2-7x33 I have laying around. Already have rings for it. It was on my .270 win and was awesome.

    At 600 to 800 yards you are going to want at least a 6x34. Lower power only for bad mirage.

    Went to range to try it out.

    Iím probably going the 6x route. After I get some more rounds down range and some money. The 4x was so solid this one feels loose for some reason. But I couldnít calm down. I may put it back on if it makes me crazy. The high mag makes me shake. Iíve always done better with low power scopes.

    Like this 1.5 inch group with open sights, if I see to much of the target I start over correcting and canít hold still. If I see just enough I can hold all day.

    To help stabilize the shake, you could make a "sand sock" for a rear bag to help stabilize the heel of the rifle. I have a rear bag that I purchased (empty) and filled it with airsoft bb's from Academy Sports, and it has worked wonders to settle down the rifle.

    A quality front rest and a correct rear bag will really help. Currently setting up my new SEB NEO rest.

    I also use Palma brass in .308. The small rifle primers handle the heavier loads better from my experience.'

    Iím not really shaking just over correcting. Because every little movement is emphasized. I really am going to let the rifle tell what it likes. I mean if Iím out shooting you at 100 with a 4x then so be it. I also think I rushed into putting the 2-7x33mm scope on it. I should have waited.

    At 600 yards or more even your 7 power scope will not allow you to see the target well enough to truly center the crosshairs. You may get spread based on aim point then in addition to other factors.

    My 50 yard RF BR rifle has a fixed power 36X on it to make weight.
    My 100 / 200 Yard BR Rifles have a fixed 40 or 45X to make weight
    My 300 Yards rifle has an 8 x 32
    And my Palma, F Class and 600/800/1000 yard rifles have 12x42, 15x55 or 15x60X scopes on them.

    At long range you also need to be able to dial back magnification when there is serious mirage.
