After the initial sight in with that huge scope, I now know the accuracy of my $75.00 Long Branch purchase. I removed the scope assembly in favor of a PH5C with 1/8" click drum turrets. To keep it as simple as possible, I installed a new #502 Gehmann mini iris that is adjustable from .08mm - 2.4mm.
No magnification, just an adjustable peep sight. I did add a Lyman gold bead front sight blade for an additional assist. 
I will be testing this using the Lapua D166 7.62mm 200grn bullets.  I found two unused boxes. The differences between the first test i did with that particular bullet and what I will be doing is the barrel.  I was initially using a 2 groove barrel and getting dismal results.  This time I will be using a 5 groove barrel with fairly new rifling. The load will be using 35.0grns of IMR4064, GM215M primers and a C.O.L. of 3.030". Projected muzzle velocities should be around 2450 fps.
