Dip rail?
« on: April 11, 2017, 09:30:50 PM »
I just purchased a 455 American suppressor ready and I have a vortex viper 6x20x44 ready to go on it.  I'm trying to decide whether or not to use the 25 moa dip rail. The only con I see is it's more parts and screws to come loose. I will not be shooting this gun at any matches or anything however if it's as accurate as I have heard them to be I would like to take some two maybe three hundred yard shots after I have built a relationship with the gun. I'm not expecting to shoot that  distance all the time or or I would have bought a tacticool or a trainer. This is going to be a all around critter getter and fun gun. The pros being able to zero at a further distance and a wider variety of rings. I'm not sure yet but the added elevation might help to get the eye relief correct.  If anyone has any experience I would appreciate your input.

I have 3 455s. Varmint, Varmint Precision Trainer and an Ultra Match. All three have DIP rails. Shot out to 200 with the VPT with no problem. I wouldn't ever change a thing.

Did you zero your rifle at 200 or just use hold over for your 200 yard shot?

I let myself get in a hurry and went on and bought some talley rings. I'm not sure what they will limit me to but I guess I'll find out. Oh well maybe I'll buy one down the road...
