The big day’s conditions were semi-favorable: hot and humid with winds below 8mph. However, a recent rain left the ground soft, with little chance for dust. As a result, we had a difficult time walking our projectiles onto target. Once we got on, though, the previously untested Savage 12FV made repeat shots with both scopes. The inexpensive fixed-power SWFA SS 12x had plenty of turret adjustment to get on target, and the excellent mil-quad reticle made wind adjustments easy and precise. The Nikon FX1000 4-16x50mm got on target quickly and landed two back-to-back mile shots before I ran out of ammo.
