I made it to the Range today. The wife got in a little much needed trigger time.
Elevation was good, however scope cant was causing the shots to walk Left and Right more than I like. You have No crosshairs to help with Side to Side Tilt on a Red Dot.
I put a Bubble Level on my 30mm UltraDot that is mounted on my 480 Super RedHawk a couple years ago.
I really need to mount one on the Scout as well. The problem is the Elevation Dial mounted behind the Rheostat " Dot Brightness Control Knob" on the 30mm MatchDot II. I do not have enough space for a tube mounted Bubble Level on the back of the sight. I will probably need to address this after Deer Season with either another ring set that I can mount a Bubble Level on top of the rear ring, or a Scope base mounted version.
The Scout is really liking my NOE 360-180 WFN-GC Cast Bullets.
I have them sized .357 and the Lube Groove filled with White Label Carnauba Red. I then Tumble Lubed them in Ben's Tumble Lube. (Lee Liquid Allox/Johnsons Paste Wax Blend).
Now what to carry Opening Day? The 357 Maximum CVA Scout, 35 BullBerry Contender, or 6.5 X 30 JDJ Contender? I think the wife will be best armed with the 357 Maximum. She will most likely be shooting less than 70 yards. The MatchDot II should shine at this range.
I have been working with the 6.5x30 JDJ and the Hornady 123 SST bullets the last week. I have it driving tacks. It will be a very good choice on shots that could be a little longer.
See You At The Range
