This is not exactly a Schuetzen rifle but I thought I would throw in my two cents.

577-450 Martini reworked to Creedmoor style. 10x MVA model A scope. 29" original barrel in excellent condition. So far I have three, five shot groups under one inch at 100 yards benched.

Federal LR Bench Rest Primer
22.1 grains Nobel Sport Vectan A0
4 grains Polyfill
Lee .429" 500 grain 3R unsized 16-1 alloy
Paper patched with tracing paper - Bore Butter patch lube

I tried searching for it too and it didn't come up. The post is there because I did find it. Strange.

Here's another picture:

Art,

So far I like the scope a lot. I have two of their scopes and they are both pretty good all around. Clear and focused to the edges with a sharp crosshair. The field of view isn't bad but it is restricted somewhat. I don't remember the specification for it at the moment. I have a full length version on a Romano Spenser replica in 50-90 and it has held up well to the recoil. Their mounts hold zero and track well. I would likely buy another one if I needed something period correct.

Thanks, ratseye
