Thread: Blaser R8 pro success

    Blaser R8 pro success

    Anybody got one,i'm thinking of getting one but haven't got my hands on one yet but wonderd if their as comfortable to hold and use as they make out,my hands are getting a bit stiff these days and i'm getting pee'd off worrying about nice walnut stocks getting scratched and wet so feel the urge for a placky rifle.Another thing would it be ok to have one scope and two barrels or better to have two scopes.
    Thanks Neil.

    Blaser scope mounts may be good but I think your stretching things to expect one scope to work and be zeroed on two different barrels.

    As you already probably know deep down your really looking at two scopes.

    Not necessarily, a good repeatable scope with target turrets (could use standard turrets) will work you just need to make a note of the click adjustments between the two calibres. Yes i would still like to fire a zero check shot before shooting live quarry but there is no reason why that wont work, good scopes such as the Nightforce NXS etc will repeat their adjustments reliably every time.

    I have 2 S&B zeniths already so its not a problem having two scopes just wondering if it was necessary,they don't have ballistic turrets so would be a case of altering between each swap if that means having to check zero then i'd rather have the two,just wondered how good the mount really was at repeatability when swapped between two different barrels.

    I dont disagree one scope would work if your lucky enough to get your loads printing around the same mark .
    personally I have two scopes one for each barrrel 243 and 30 .06 works fine for me without the messsing about
    I have the R8 and think its a fantastic rifle regards pete .

    get a set of set of mounts for each barrel / scope no need to change then just barrel swap regards pete .

    A properly adjusted mount may not necisarily fit other barrels without further adjustment! You really need 2 setups if you are using regularly, if its for occasional use then you could swap and re-zero, but why buy the best and then compromise the concept!

    On my R93 i use a scope per calibre - much easier

    This is an important point which is rarely mentioned.

    Each saddle mount needs "tuned" (for the want of a better description) to the barrel it is fitted too. You really need two saddle mounts if both barrels will be used regularly.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......
