Good looking setup, Jim. I have that scope on my 7mm Mauser, which is sort of overkill. However, it was free at the time I needed a scope.

That scope looks quite at home on the Rum. Nice to see you had the chance to ring her out a little.

Jim, that is a good looking set up and I am sure it will do everything you want it too. The VX6 is a fine scope!!!

Blessings,
Dan

Jim? How does she track?

Also on the turrets pictured... are the turrets lift-unlock and press down-to lock?

The tracking has been spot on to 800 yards.
The stock dials lift to calibrate and push down to lock.
I did send the scope back and had the tactical dials installed.
They look like the M1 dials. Much better but still not a M1.

Nice looking rig you have there Jim. I have the same stock sitting in a corner I bought for a rifle that I later sold. I'll find another rifle for it one day.

Recently ordered a VX 6 2-12 x42 for a 257 Weatherby Vangard. This is a big change for me as I 've been hunting with a 35 Whelen for the past 20 or so years. Recently , with my son, got a Nosler Professional 9.3 by 62 and we put a Vortex !-6 viper PST on it. It will be mostly used by him. Not sure why i got the 257 except that I wanted it. Thanks for reading my ramble :)

Welcome poprly, I have that identical scope and it is my favourite one in my collection :wink:.
I am sure that you are going to enjoy that scope and also the 257 is a great calibre (y).

Blessings,
Dan

The Scope is holding up on the 338 RUM. One week ago Friday, I shot a crop damage deer with it. DRT with a high shoulder shot. The next evening, 4 shots, 4 dead does in 15 minutes! Love this scope.
