Re: Scope Power
Personally I like my 6-18 on my 300 rum. And that's shooting 1400 yards.
On my lapua I've got a 5.5-22 and I feel that is more the sufficient for shooting out past 1600 yards.
I like to be able to see my hits at that distance and with a super high power scope your going to be off target upon firing. But I don't need to count hairs at that distance either so no need for a scope with that much power.
What's your retained energy at 1400 yards with your 7??
My dear boy if 5 miles away they don't sit up in their beds and ask what the HELL was that, the gun is not big enough!
