new scope

Hello I'm new to LRH. I have Remington 700 sps varmint came in 22-250. the rifle shoot under 1/2 inch group at 100 yds very good considering the cost of the rifle. It came with a 4x12x40 scope is just the one it came with Bushnell style ok for 100 yds shoots but i would like to up grade the scope. The only thing is that I don't have much money. Do any of u shooters give or used a decent affordable scope I would like 8-24 or something along them lines. Thanks.

Re: new scope

ive got the same rifle but in .223. mine will also hold under 1" most of the time ittl shoot around .75 but with a better shooter at the helm ittl probably shoot even closer that. anyway if your looking for a fairly inexpensive scope i would go with the vortex viper 6.5x20x44 at cameralandny.com mine was 289 and i couldnt be happier. in fact with the new scope i just shot .925 at 200 yds for a 3 shot group.

Re: new scope

im not sure the radical but im thinking you meant retical, as for that im pretty sure they called it the v plex and thats the only one thats 289. basically its a fine standard crosshair. if your using it to hunt it will work fine youll just have to learn to dial in your drops instead of holding over

Hey ya sorry about the misspelling my dam phone's auto spell. I do some chuck hunting and paper and even bring out for deer season. I looked one the web site they are a nice scope sill maybe a little pricey for me.

Re: new scope

Optics should cost as much or more than the rifle. If you cant afford a good scope, save your pennies until you can at least step into the Viper PST range. If you dont, your just gonna be throwing your money out the door.
