    The spinning virus of the the 22 Hornet claimed dozens of lives today adding to the viral death toll...

    Nice to see a couple of rare items like the Hornet and the 22PPC Deluxe get some real-world use. I don't do safe queens either.

    Interesting juxtaposition of the Zeiss scopes on the two newer rifles versus the Balvar Eights on the two L46's. The old Bausch and Lomb scopes still do the job.

    The tapered crosshairs on my Balvar 8A's are just great. Super fine in the middle and your eye just seems to be drawn to it. Can't find anything like it now.

    The Balvar on my rifle-length L579 Mannlicher has tapered crosshairs and it's one of my favorite scopes. A similar one is the so-called "Leupold Dot," a tapered crosshair with a dot in the middle. I don't even know if Leupold makes it any more, but years ago I had them put one in a 12x for me, and it's now on my heavy barrel .222 Mag Sako. 308-2.JPG

    Years ago......got an O'Brien rifle, that came with a Leupold 7.5X w/tapered cross-hair......in Conetrol mounts/rings. Nice scope.

    Then there's the nice Sako 222mag. HB with a Canjar single-set trigger, that I bought a few years ago from a Sako board friend. It came with a Balvar 2-8X in great shape......with a tapered cross-hair....in Kuharsky mounts/rings. Before my friend.....someone had "red" loctited the base to the receiver. I had to literally hack-saw the base, length-wise, off of the receiver. Don't want to have to do that again!! I replaced the Kuharsky set-up with Leupold Adjusto mounts/rings. Looks great!

    Good move! The Leupold Adjusto sits much lower than the Kuharsky and puts the scope down at natural eye level.

    Most of us who aren't Medicare age don't know that the first Weaver variables had non-moving reticles. The Weaver adjustable mount for their variables looked like something that Rube Goldberg might have imagined in a nightmare. Who is Rube Goldberg, you ask? You must be younger than the A-series!
