    We’ve all done it. 3” x 5” cards taped onto our rifle stocks, on the bench, or like my version, under the objective scope cap-

    Well, like all things Airguns, new improvements have come along. Say hello to the recently produced dope card holder from MK Machining-

    Its a top rail picatinny mount. It can be mounted at both left and right side of the rifle. I currently have an email to MKM to see if this also can be produced to mount on the side rail, like what’s on the current impacts and Mavericks.

    At the swivel it has a ball detention system with positive stops, so your dope card isn’t just flopping around in the wind, or each time you pick the rifle up and move on, like to your next field target.

    Two powerful earth magnets hold the white steel plate on. Your dope card, if you made it as wide as the plate but made it longer on the top and bottom so you could fold flaps on it, could easily be held on with this magnetized plate, or, depending on your ammo type and weight, you could order more of these plates and just label your dope onto these plates with a label maker. Your choice! You can see the purpose made half round punch outs on the plate holder, to make pulling off the plate a breeze! Very well thought of, I want to add. I also see a pre punched hole on the steel plate so storing a bunch of these together like in a key ring makes it easy to organize.

    More views of the dope card holder off of the gun. Believe me, once you e held one of these in your hands you’ll see how much thought went into its design. Somebody at MKM knew what they were doing!

     

    And for those of you who have never heard of MK Machining, they make all kinds of throw levers for our scopes, along with my favorite parallax type wheel. I have these star type wheels on all my PCP’s. Just check out MKM’s catalog of throw levers and parallax wheels, and if your scope isn’t on there, do what I did and ship them your scope and they’ll pull dimensions off of it and you get your throw lever and wheel compliments of MK Machining! They also are a big seller of Athlon scopes, chronograph add on parts, reloading equipment parts, all sorts of stuff for the shooting sports we enjoy.

    If you decide to look for one of these dope cards, when on their site just punch in DOPE CARD HOLDER in their search section.

    Nope too heavy and bulky for me. Lol I'm sure it's great for bench rest or blind work for various distances. I'm sticking to a sticker on the side of my stock.

    Looks like a very good design and light years away from painter's tape!!!

    I use painter's tape but for bench or FT its the bees knees.

    I'll keep mine in the scope caps, where they've been for a long time.  But, some will probably do well with those.

    I love this idea, but I don't use caps, but I can do a sticker on the scope behind the power ring. My turrets are set for 44.5 hybrids but I also want a dope for 44.8 pellets. This gave me the perfect idea for having both on the rifle. Thanks!!

    MK Machining got back to me on the white steel plate, and that that is to be where your dope is marked up on wether with a sharpie or a label maker. Use both sides and you can create the dope for two different ammo types. If you need more, like to transfer onto a different gun, caliber, etc, they sell more white steel plates as needed. 

     

    Like I mentioned, there’s nothing wrong with the older traditional ways of storing scope turret dial ups, wether it’s like I did meticulously underneath my scope cap, or the tape on the stock, or even the Tom Brady style playbook on the wrist. It’s whatever suits you. In my case with my notes under my scope cap, I thought I was stylin’ till I realized these dope notes were only for the Vortex supreme 44.75g 30 cal pellets, which were discontinued last year. I recently found out my 30 cal wildcat loves the new Haydes, so now I need to check if the dope on the Vortex will match up with the Haydes, and now that FX came out with the hybrid slugs I’m in another predicament. When I saw this dope card holder from MKM, and saw how easy it was to transfer info and even have multiple cards, one for each type of ammo, I had to share in my findings!

    The guys over on MKM are awesome to deal with.  Have a few things from them for the powder side of things.

     

    If there is an issue they are great at getting things fixed and correct for you.
