    i once explained that i no longer have full use of my left hand so the shift key is pita to get to. i'm not coming up with excuses, if it's an issue tell me and i'll pony up.

    fair enough, but anything better then 1 moa is imho good enough. you need 5 moa to hit a man sized b-24 target consistanly at 500 yards, i can do it with an ak/sks all day long. military deal in minute of man so a semi that consistanly delivers >.5 moa is gonna cut it. with a rifle that accurate, ranging and reading the wind is going to be a much bigger variable than the platform. which is why most of the hsld users upgraded the optics on the nsn supplied sr-25's, they found that the rifle was out-shooting the leupold glass.
    oh and fwiw, i've recently gotten my first gray hairs.

    Ok, my memory has been jogged. Im pretty sure the Timberwolf rifle you mention is the favourite of the 3 contenders for the new UK sniper rifle. Ill confirm on Monday.

    Last I heard, they still use the M14DMR version of the M14.

    Yeah, it looks like they are. I thought that they hadn't used it in sometime. I know that SS do not use them, but I guess recon still does.

    in that case here's some prairie gun works long range fcukstick goodness for you (the newest timberwolf is available with a folding stock):

    notice the top shelf canadian spec'd uso scope (with erek knobs and all):


    notice the awesomely cool maple leaf on the end of the can:


    off to the stan:


    this rig will hit a man sized target at 1860 yards:

    What is the twist-looking machining on the barrel for? does it help with heat dissipation?

    I rememeber berthing with a EOD team in 2003 on a westpac float that had two m14 dmr's. Have not seen one since but wouldn't be surprise if they were still i service.
