Thanks. I'll try to swing by tomorrow if I can escape work. Rifle sights aren't my preference, but I'll see if they'll work for me.

OMG yes. Love the one with Hammer on the receiver. Factory ghost rings on the barrel? I may try to carve out some time on Friday to swing by if you've got them out.

Why all the hate? Bryan Litz does a pretty good job of explaining why the 168gr SMK has problems. I've even experienced them firsthand.

Agree with almost everything above, but... stay away from 168gr SMKs. They have known issues with destabilizing when going transonic at 900-1000yds.

Probably wouldn't cycle reliably across most loads. Might be a more interesting thing to try with 40S&W and 10mm ARs, where you've got a lot more energy in play.
