Turrett first field test...Very cool!!!

Postby Hognuts on Mon 30 May, 2011 2:12 pm

Here is some videos of the first outing with the Turrett mount on the quad, pretty cool, Four hits on the elk @ 725 yards with an 800 grain barnes bore rider, used the same dope as 750 amax, elevation was perfect, four different shooters and we had a perfect horizontal string on the target, elevation was right on. There was a little wind right to left, (5mph) I had dialed 3/4 moa and held center, I hit behind the popper, Beau and Vegas shot and hit close to my impact kind of bracketed mine, then Joe shot and held an additional 2 moa of right wind and drilled center mass on the popper, the mount seems to work as designed, you definitely get some spring vibration and if your teeth are clenched it is undesirable!

15 moa elevation with 225 grains of h50bmg and 800 grain bore rider. 725 yards, :camo:

Here are the impacts on the elk.

That's awesome! I sure hope photobucket can hold up, cause I just shared one of the videos on the Barrett Facebook page.

Thanks for resetting my account Kevin. After my computer took a crap a month ago i had been unable to log in.

The quad mount works well and looks bad ***. The spring reverb is hard on the jaw and teeth but takes up almost all recoil.

Belive it or not mounting a Barrett to your quad is NOT illegal in Nevada, provided you are not on a public road or hunting from the quad.

That is cool, I had meant to put some up on the Barrett page once we got it all painted and finished, it still looks pretty mean "in the rough" But it should look really good once we get it fine tuned and throw a coat of flat black on it and have the rear rack finished. (there may be an electric over air rear adjustment for the monopod if I get all of the engineering logistics of that worked out!) I think it may help with the spring reverberation too having another point of contact with the rifle.
