2 rifles and one scope?

Hey fellas, I was wondering if I can use the same scope on 2 diffrent rifles. I'm considering either the Huskemaw or g7 scope and running it on my 25-06 this fall on mule deer then purchasing and moving it to a 300wsm next year. I feel it would be much cheaper and I will only be running one long range rifle at a time then could switch back and fourth as needed. Is it possible to trade out turrets between the 2 rifles without screwing up the whole works? Thank's, Brad

since my range is 136 miles away - for me no. if your range is your back yard . yes.

I don't have personal experience with either scope however because the G7 is made by Nightforce that would be my pick. You can have turrets made for both rifles you just need the detailed ballistics for each. Average temp and elevation that you would be shooting in is also important. If you do choose to go the one scope two rifle route it sounds like alot of time is going to be spent switching the scope frome rifle to rifle then switching turrets then rezeroing.

Re: 2 rifles and one scope?

I have no issue at all switching scopes between my rifles using picatinny rails.

Bolt it on.

Bore sight if you like. But, mine always seem to be on paper at 100yds with the first shot.

Adjust the turrets and the second shot is dead on.

If you're using custom BDC turrets for each rifle, then you have an extra step or two.

It's not something you'll want to do in the field, but it is workable with quality optics.

And, if you use 20 MOA slope, then you'll want the same on all rifles.

I used to do it on my Encore rifle with the rifle bbl and muzzleloader bbl. I used leupold quick detach bases and wrote down the adjustments from one to the other. I was using a Nikon Monarch and would just swap the scope dial the adjustments and shoot a test shot. The encore wasnt what i would call a tack drive but it was always dead on every time i switched.

I have been switching my NF from my 25-06 Sendero to my 300 RUM Sendero and back as needed. Keep in mind, you will need to sight it each time. I dont have the BDC turrets and that would complicate things, but it is doable.

Re: 2 rifles and one scope?

Thank's fellas, Just the info I was looking for. If this is the case maybe I could put a NF ballistic or velocity reticle scope built to 600 yds on my 25-06 now and go with the G7 on the 300wsm next year.
How accurate are the ballistic and velocity reticle scopes? I just don't see them being very accurate without being built for a specific bullet rifle combo tested at the range. What say yal? Brad
