Re: New to long range

Welcome to LRH Bobcat Sniper!

There are only about a thousand threads on this topice. Here's one that has just run it's course. Use the search thing and you can read on this for weeks.

I envy you having a 1300 yd range you can step outside to, That would be real sweet.

What is the best scope on the market PERIOD?

Good shooting and keep us posted on your progress.

-Mark

Re: New to long range

I'm building a similar rig. 700 action 30" barrel of some kind. Scopes the sky is the limit or I guess your wallet. I am trying out my first Bushnell 3200 10x40 and so far really like it. Plus only 160-180 on ebay. Let me know how some loads go for ya.

If it is for hunting and targets I would go with the NF NSX 5.5-22 or one of the March scopes in 2.5 - 25 or 5-50x.

If it is strictly for targets just bump the power on the above offerings.

Just my .02.

Re: New to long range

If paper's mostly what your going to shoot I would suggest the NF BR 8-32x @ $1211 or NF BR 12-42x @ $1359 versus for example NF NXS 5.5-22x @ $1632 to $1810 depending on feartures or NF NSX 12-42x @ $1885. Heads up, mirage can be an issue with 32x and 42x.
