On that gun there I have a Leupold Delta Point on it. I love it. When the gun moves the sight turns on. It will stay on until it's sit still for 5 minutes. Brightness is auto. Very clear dot no star burst. I wouldn't have been able to afford one brand new but I got this one second hand on a pretty good deal. I have a Vortex Venom on my 12ga and really like it. I was gonna put another on my .410 but I found a broken Burris Fast Fire 3 for $100 last week. I sent it back so they will fix it or replace it. So I got a new FF3 basically for $100. I couldn't pass that up. But I really like the Vortex Venoms.

Have you tried the same load with a roll crimp? I always wondered if any load patterned better one way or the other?

Good looking rig. Pattern's a bit snug for my taste, but impressive none-the-less.
