Flash forward to the afternoon of Thanksgiving day and my turn to deer hunt. My DPMS with the LaRue mount dropped a nice mature 8 point buck at 150 yards (about the average distance here in central Texas). So, I would pass along the recommendation that I received from the fine folks at LaRue and order an SPR-S mount.
I spoke with the guy on the phone and he told me for my purposes to get the lt 104 mount as I would not be firing at targets over 500 yds. Here in south alabama where I live it is very wooded and ranges of more than 200 yds are very few and far between. A 500 yds shot or longer would only come at a range or firing on a power line route.
Luckily if I decide I need more range I can always get the spr-s mount as I am in process of building an spr type AR15 so all is well. Actually I just looked up the spr-s and added it to my favorites folder for spr-build so I can remember it for laters just in case as 10 moa is pretty nice.
