I picked one up yesterday in good as new condition for R6000. Thought it was a reasonable deal.

I’ve got a Leica 10x42 Geovid thats tge good ol faithfull, as well as a lovely Austrian military green 10x42 Swarovski Porro prism binoculars, but sometimes I just want to go for a walk with a light rifle with open sights and then the bigger binos seem cumbersome.

Anything I need to watch out for in the baby Ultravids, or are they the real deal? Anyone with experience please chip in.

Hi Luke. Just saw your message. I am in Dillingham, and have been since 2002. I took an elementary teaching gig here, taught here five years, and then got a job with Togiak National Wildlife Refuge as their education and outreach specialist. Recently I just got a promotion and now I'm the Visitor Services Manager. Prior to DLG I spent 6 years teaching for Lake and Pen in Nondalton.

I am glad you found some useful info in my posts. Hard cast WFN with GC will do the job fine. I trust Veral Smith (owner of LBT company) - I believe that he can provide you with some finest HC bullets. Many companies are coping his design. I can help you from here in developing max loads (40.000psi) just let me know which powder you are using (I use Quick Load software which turns to be very reliable).
