OK! I don't know how you plan on getting a consitant or even an acceptable cheek weld with your scope mounted that far back. I mean... most knowledgeable shooters will use the Nose To Charging handle method to ensure a consistant head position on the weapon, and thus consistant POI.

Don't take this as a slam. You asked, and that's just my opinion. 99% of the scope mounts I see on this sight are the exact same way.

A good way to set up a scope on a rifle is for the shooter to get into position with his head where he intends to have it when shooting, and then mount the scope to the gun where you get the proper amount of eye relief.

Also, your BI POD is too tall. How would that work in the prone position.

The varmint scope was mounted using this method. Eye relief is fine for me & cheek weld feels right on the ACE stock. Installation assistance was from a reputable local gunsmith.

Don't plan on doing any prone -- only sitting, kneeling, or bench.

Dig it! If it works for your need.. cool. My perspective is coming from the precision rifle realm where you're sitting prone on the weapon for longer periods!

Hmm, sitting prone on the rifle, must be why you have so much time to make posts.

I wonder if when it goes "bang", it feels good? Maybe we're onto something "kinky"?
