Apparently I'm an idiot or leupold has their ring finder thing set up to gind rings without a rear sight mounted. I have a mod 70 safari Express in 416 rem, ordered the medium rings to go with my new vx5hd 2-10 like the website suggested, and the scope can't be mounted using those rings with the rear sight attatched. Anyone got a link for a smaller rear sight replacement or?

I just pulled the rear sight off and threw the sight screw back in and said screw it for now. Back and forth BS with late shipping has me pissed lol

I did a little housekeeping in my shop and found some .500 Jeffery ammo that I no longer need. Superior Ammunition and Hendershots loaded them, along with AHR (American Hunting Rifles). Several Woodleigh/A-Square solids along with lead bullets in both 535g and 600g. Message me for any details.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian
