  2. Budget accurizing a SA Scout

    Howdy all, In an effort to get ready for boar hunting, I am looking to fine tune the accuracy of my SA Scout, with walnut stock, and Burris Scout scope. I usually use 147gr M80 surplus, and typically get about 1-2" groups (more 2" than 1", I admit) from the bench with bipod. At less than...

    Modern M14

Now that I put the CASM mount on, if I look down the mount it's way left of the front sight. Today at...
