My hands are too shakey for the reloading skills anymore.
I'd scatter materials all over the bench these days.
I'm fitting a longer range scope to the Steyr .376
. It has unusual scope mounts...two piece, but integral with the rings for the 3x9x40mm optics that are on the rifle now. They allow the 40mm scope lens to touch the barrel in front, and the bolt is nicking the scope when it is opened and pulled to the rear. So in order to get "higher" rings to allow more clearance, I have to get new two-piece mounts first. Luckily the Browning A-Bolt mounts fit the Steyr, so it is just a matter of swapping them over, then mounting some taller rings. Since I am going that far, I'll increase the scope power to a 6x24x50mm to give me a longer reach for the big caliber gun. I'll do a before and after photo for you to add to this post when I get the work done.
Here is the gun the way it came with the bolt knob bumping the scope each time it is pulled to the rear. Raising the scope will cure that and also give clearence to the front edge of the objective lens which now rubs the barrel.
More to follow when the Mounts, Rings and new Scope arrive
