New Glass for my STW

Any suggestions for new glass on my STW? I put a Swarovski Z5 3.5-18x44 on my .270 WSM last year and quite like it, it has the ballistic turret which suits my needs for hunting. I have heard mixed reviews on the Huskemaw scopes so not sold on them. Any input from the Hood would be appreciated!!

Re: New Glass for my STW

I would highly recommend what I have on my twin Remington 700 Sendero SF 7mm STWs.

Put a Vortex Viper PST 6-24x50 FFP EBR-1 MOA Reticle Scope on it. I absolutely love mine!

Sightron S-III 8-32x56 with the LRMOA reticle. Best bang for your buck out there IMHO. Do some digging and check them out...Good Luck

Nightforce NXS 8-32x56 MOAR reticle is my dream scope for my 7STW.

Unless you need the up close magnification, in which case the NF NXS 5.5-22x56 MOAR.

Re: New Glass for my STW

I need up close magnification also as I use my STW to moose hunt and some of the shots are really close so trying to stay in the 3-4 power on the low end magnification. Thanks for the input so far.

I have a Weaver Super Slam 3.5x15x43 with the ebx reticle on my smokeless ml. Its built like a tank, glass is excellent, also tracks well. Then there is Zeiss which is a step above.

I am currently putting on a Vortex Viper LR 4x16x44 with BDC. Will see how it works out.
