Re: 30-06 which scope?

the Kahles is just as good of glass as its Swaro brothers. the 2.5-10x50 should be great for gathering light , although bumping the OBJ lens to 56mm and making sure that it has a 30mm tube will certainly make things a little brighter.
the big factor is the power , no mater whos glass you use your going to loose some light transfer to your eye as the power ring is turned up.
with my Swaro set at between 4-6 power I can see things way better through the scope than I can without it.

I don't know how a Khales scope compairs to other top end scopes, because I have never tried one. Although I have tried Khales binoculars and they are not equal to the top end binoculars.
range it,check the wind, dial in correction, aim and only one shot

Re: 30-06 which scope?

Kahles are a good reliable scope withy far better than average optics. Opticaly on par with the nightforce NXS, which isn't on par with the S&B, Zeiss or Swarovski's.
Current pick of the bunch seems to be the S&B zenith series.
I'm not convinced that 56mm Obj is that much better than a 50mm Obj.
