Thatís in the works.

Iím trying to figure out the best way of adapting an AAC 762Sd to the m1a. This polytech has weird muzzle threads. A custom adapter may have to be made.

Yeah, thatís 4+ hrs away; I was gonna offer a range out to 300 yds if you needed it once you get here. Iíll likely only be able to do guided down in FL myself . . .

Have a helluva successful hunt!

I have the optic zeroed at 100 meters . Using 149grain fmj right now. But will use 168smk for the hunt.

I’m curious if the ballistic computer on the optic is accurate . I also ordered the auxiliary ballistic laser range finder to speed up the determination of firing solutions to microseconds.

Do those scopes have any delay? Like, could you replace night vision with it for navigation?

No perceivable delay. At 1.3x setting is more like true 1x. I was able to use it to find my way in the woods behind my property.

Soooo. Damn nice set up. Great weapon imo.

Not a pro hog hunter here but have been a time or two. Having said that, my observation is your rig will be perfect for “the big one” (first shot). IMHO, the length will be problematic on follow up shots once the sounder breaks. I’d prefer a shorter rig. Once the sounder breaks, it’s kinda like a video game for follow up shots. Lots of movement in various, unpredictable directions and various speeds. Follow up shots are a challenge.

Good luck!!
