Well, I can confirm that the Nikon Prostaff 4-12X40 with Warne medium height rings will NOT fit the 452, whether the rear sight leaf is removed or not. I tried loose fitting it tonight, and it wasn't really close. And I think the bolt handle would probably not clear, either. So the rings have to go back and be replaced with high rings.

So, is it a simple pin holding the rear sight leaf in place, or is there a trick to removing it? I didn't try yet, but figured I would ask for any advice beforehand.


On the plus side, with the medium rings installed, it seemed like I wouldn't have a problem with the scope height/cheek weld. I'll see how it is with the high rings, but the high can't be too much taller than the medium.

Is it as easy as that? The spring pressure holds it in place, I guess?

I got the Warne high rings today, and mounted the Nikon Prostaff 4-12 X 40.









It turns out I did not have to remove the front sight leaf. I took it off, and after the scope was in place it seemed like I could put it back on. I managed to get it on with removing the scope again. I'm glad it is on, now I don't have to worry about losing it. Clearance at the bolt handle is ample, and good at the front sight, too. It makes me wonder if I should have tried harder with the medium rings. Oh, well. I will definitely need a stock pad, I can't get a comfortable cheek weld as it is. I can't find a decent one at Cabelas or Bass Pro, which is where I bought the rings using my Cabelas bucks, plus I have $75 in gift cards to Cabelas. Have to find one elsewhere. Hopefully I'll get a chance to get to the range this weekend to sight it in.

I had the opportunity to get to the range today, despite the wet weather in PA. I sighted in first at 25 yards to start, with a few shots, then shot at 50 yards. I tweaked to zero at 50 with a few shots, then moved to 100 yards. At 100 yards it was 7" low, so I re-adjusted to zero at 100 yards.

First target is 5 shots at 100 yards, scope at 12x. It was raining pretty heavily at the time. Shooter needs practice. I wonder if the rain can actually affect bullet flight. Any thoughts on that?



This target is 10 rounds at 25 yards, scope at 8X. The rain had slackened to just a light rain. The one errant hole to the left was the last shot (arrghh).
