338 snipetac

Getting one of the big 338s built and wanted to know the optics you guys are using on your rifles to get to 2000 yards.

I think its 70,but to be honest I'm not positive on that. Mine is the picket fence style reticle so I also have another 32 MOA available there. I guess I should have been more specific with my answer and state that I havnt shot that far with it yet, only been to 1150 with it so far shooting but have been scoping elk last year at the 2k mark and had no doubt that if I were capable of it the scope would be more than adaquate to the task.

Thanks, I have been wanting to try an SIII for a less expensive option. The 70 moa should get the op close to 2K if a 35 moa rail was used.


To the OP, I would suggest you take a long look at the new Nightforce ATACR for that Snipetac. It has 120 moa of elevation and what I will be using on my new LRKM in 338 Terminator to get to 3K.

Re: 338 snipetac

Broz,
I think you will be plenty satisfied with the SIII
when you consider their price. And that you can get
a 6-24x50 for 650-700 bucks used. Although I really
don't see to many of them for sale. I'm guessing
because no one wants to let them go.

Getting a NF in a month so can't wait to compare
them.
