The SR762 arrived and I made it right at home.



I had pre-purchased 80 rds of PMC XTAC 162 gr OTM + a can of IMI 150 gr FMJ. I also have some American Eagle 149 gr FMJ, 40 rds of PRVI Partizan 168 gr HPBT, and some American Eagle 168 gr OTM.





I got a few extra magazines in 20 & 25 rd sizes, then started looking at optics. I am a fan of Vortex and Leupold. But I stumbled across a write up on the Nikon M-308 scope and, since it's basically calibrated for a 7.62x51/.308 HPBT moving at around 2760 fps, I went ahead and ordered one, along with a Team Warne XSKEL mount and a short picatinny rail riser section. All the parts and pieces showed up this past week so I got after it this morning to put it together.

Last weekend I had received the Precision Armament muzzle brake and indexing washers so I got that on as well.



I put the same one on the SR556.

Also, you'll notice the Harris bipod in the pic below.

I think I'm done adding things to this one except for a QD sling mount on the handguard right behind the bipod.

Next...time to get this bad boy to the range!

I see you already purchased the nikon, which is a great scope, i have several, although not the one you have, they have always been great. I have a few vortexs as well, also great scopes, love my 6x24x50 viper pst ffp moa.

The burris eliminator is an awesome scope. I have mine on a 24" custom I built 308, dpms upper and lower. The scope is able to be setup for the ammo you use, just plug in the right drop number. Mine has accurately ranged from 25 yards to 1000 yards. Its built well, and worth the price for the capability. Love mine.

As far as ammo the best over the counter I have used is the 168 sierra matchking which is federal gold medal match ammo. I have seen this round have repeatedly great results out to 800 yards. Have not shot it past that. The black hills is also good ammo. You will get the best results from handloading, which is what I do. Under 1moa is normal in my 308 rifles. Enjoy the sr762. Here is my 24 with eliminator scope.

Very good gun, I've had one for several years though lately I have been considering trading my SR762 in on a Ruger Precission Rifle in 308 winchester with a 20" barrel. Just a thought and I am still thinking about it. Anyway, bet of luck with your rifle !

Congratulations! I've enjoyed mine. The first few rounds through were a little sketchy, failure to extract a few more times than I was willing to accept. Someone on the forum suggested I change the gas setting from 2 to 3, end of problems.

Shot the first 200 rounds with just iron sights then put a NikonP-308 4-12x40 BDC 800 and now I as happy as a clam at high tide. Messing around at 250 yds and getting some good fist sized groups - smaller and smaller fists every trip!

Enjoy your SR and best of luck with her!

Love that .308, Tacky. It looks so purposeful, like it's ready to go at a moment's notice!

Thanx, MsgtRock. The RPR is a fine weapon. I've shot one several times and I keep eyeing them.

I appreciate the info. Sundown Thursday. I don't expect tight groups right outta the box but for what I'll be doing with it, it'll be tight enough with some rounds through it. I have high hopes for the M308 optic and it's capabilities.

Thanks buddy, it is ready to go at a moments notice, but I do not shoot it that frequently, too many horses in the stable. Let us know how the m308 works for you, never used one, but I would add one to the collection, if they are worthy.

Roger that.

I decided that I could not, in good conscience, use the Nikon mount. Too many places for it to come loose, killing my zero, and it was a PITA to mount. So I put on the Team Warne unit.

I understand, a good scope is only as good as the mount its attached with. I have heard the warne is good. I have a liking for the american defense, burris pepr, and weaver tactical 6 holes. The are all stronger than is required, which is a requirement for me.

Here is a 308 I built with the weaver tactical 6 hole rings, and a 6x24x50 vortex pst viper ffp. The barrel came from your neck of the country , St. Helens......black hole weaponry. Its my own improved version of the m110, in 308 of course.

I got mine about two weeks ago, looks fantastic. Can't wait to fire it, it's killing me. Trigger seems good, unfortunately I read all the early reviews and the trigger sucked. So I order a Timney at the same time, but this seems nice (dry fire), but will probably drop the Timney in anyways.

Hi MKIV,
I've been looking at glass for my SR-762 and was considering the Nikon M-308. Was wondering why you didn't get the matching M-308 20 MOA mount. Also, let us know how you like the scope.

Probably because the 20moa is made to allow more adjusment for longer ranges, but sacrifices shorter range site ability.

So in my thoughts if you are planning to sight in 100 yards, you may not be able to with a 20moa base, unless you are running either a 30mm tube, and or have a great amount of adjusment like + 60moa, 30 up and 30 down. In other words the scopes adjusment will probably max out before you can zero at 100. The m308 has 40moa of adjusment. Now if your planning to shoot to 800 or beyond, the 20moa is made for that. My barrett 99 has a 27 moa rail for extended range shooting. My scope the viper pst ffp 6x24x50 has 65 moa of adjustment, and my sight in distance is 200 yards. Hope that helps in understanding.
