I didn't realize it was open to any caliber. I've just read so much about it in connection to rimfires that I didn't give it much thought. I suspect some places emphasize the rimfires due to range restrictions and youth involvement.BlueMntCeltic said:Eil,
I believe you can bring any caliber, the QRT that they use, pardon me if I'm wrong, was developed for the M14 .308. I know I've shot it with my M1A and informally qualified as a Rifleman (never had a witness,
I found the 400 yd (m) targets (those 'postage stamp sized ones) to just sit on top of the M!A's front sight. I think you'll want a blade front sight rather than the gold bead front sight for those smaller targets.
I read that Ayoob shot this last year and did alright with his 10/22 and optics, brought the wrong mag (25 shot) and had perfected the one post monopod technique with it, only... his favorite prone position wasn't allowed . I was surprised that they let you use a scope.
I see where the Lewiston, ID club is sponsoring an Appleseed event in mid-May. Boy I'm tempted to go!
No. They have a standard LOP. They do feel slim and maybe a tad barrel heavy since the butt stock is so light but after you handle it a few times they feel real nice.medic07 said:Erik
Did your 795 feel short in the LOP to you at all. My Academy here is currently out of stock so I could not shoulder one to see. They just look a little short in the pictures.
Like Eli Chaps, I put tech sights on mine, a USGI sling, and got an extra mag. I should have gotten a couple more, but money is tight. I was hoping to hit an Appleseed this spring, but it looks more like it won't be until the fall that I get the time. But Appleseed or not, I really like the tech sights.medic07 said:Considering a 795 for Appleseed this summer in TX.
What have you guys/girls done with yours for Appleseed?
Also, anyone use optics versus iron sights (low power like fixed 2.5 or 4)?
