Re: Budget Scope

So you guys think the Mueller scope can handle the recoil of a .50 or .338lm?

Looking for a temp scope to put on the savage 110BA. I am looking for tactical turrets with variable zoom.

I have heard good things about Mueller, but someone told me that they werent magnum approved. Guessing that means not for large calibers.

I have also heard good things about Falcon scopes, but they are hard to find it seems like. They are supposedly approved for the 338LM.

Any advice would be appreciated.

    Check out the Millett tactical's. I had one for a starter scope and they are built like tanks with pretty decent glass.

    Hope that helps.

    I have a Falcon Optics 4-14x44 FFP Mildot scope. It's a good scope, solidly built, and the guys stand behind their product. I lost a screw (me being clumsy) and i emailed them about it, a week later i had 2 sets of 6 extra screws and new turrets! free of charge.

    I am willing to sell it as i have a sightron on my .308 and want a higher magnification scope for my 300 wby imp.

    Glass is good (have shot and done well in numerous 1000yard f-class matches with it) and it tracks perfectly.

    PM me if interested.

    Oliver
