Well today I picked up my Sauer 202 clasic XT in .308.
Mounted a zeiss 3-12x50 scope on it in leupold QD's. This rifle replaced a Heym which I liked but didn't want to bash up and did handle differently to my other Sauer 6.5x55. So the idea of the back up rifle was to have it the same as the 6.5 (my main rifle) in all but the scope on top. Which is also a zeiss 2-8x42, same reticule, mounted in same mounts so could be swapped between guns.
I'm off tomorrow to zero them in and see if they hold zero if swapped between rifles out to say 200 yds.
I hope these are the only 2 rifles I'll need/want for a considerable time. I love the 6.5 so couldn't think of a better spare rifle as one the same. Of course I have the chance to mess with different rounds if I want but on the whole I hope they shoot very similar.
Do you guys think this was a good idea?
Too late now as I've spent the money but wondered if anyone else out there had 2 rifles same as each other?
