Re: Compact long range scope

Thanks, lots of good info. Yes I won't be shooting 800yds. I prefer the lower power. Side focus is just so nice and handy but good optics can help. Going to look at the swfa and the leopold. I also need one for my smokeless muzzle loader, should work for both.

Re: Compact long range scope

Horus hawk, best bet, i'm thinking about going to the h-25 or 37 on all my scopes. Dialing is for 600+ and you need above 16x for real precision over that. Another option shepard 3x10. Awesome for hunting.

I have a NF 2.5X10x36 on my 270WSM. Great glass, Reticle, and very compact. No side focus though, but no parallax issues to 700 yards.

Leupold 6-18x40 with whichever reticle you want. Short, lightweight, and in the power range you can use.
