Re: Lightweight Long Range Scope

Thanks for the heads up on March, guys! If they will take an almost new BSA on trade, I will probably order one up. It looks like they really have a LOT to offer! I dug around and found some crazy stuff, and a couple of them look perfect for my application. This one is lighter than my 4-16 Hensoldt with almost three times the magnification! Looks like a real winner for an extra long range rig! March rifle scopes Australia & New Zealand Tactical FX 5-40 x 56

LMFAO! I looked at the photos and wondered if you were serious. Great joke. I needed that.

Yeahhh, I can be a bit of a smartass at times when provoked. I do a lot of long range shooting, but I've never been overly concerned with how much my guns weighed. I've also hunted a lot, but I've never really combined the two, so I'm trying to gear up for some ELR hunting, and I want to keep the weight down on this one so it doesn't kill me to carry it up and down mountains if I end up having to do that. Lou made the assumption that I had no idea what I was doing, which got under my skin a little.

Your photo of the scope and note is so damn funny, I laugh whenever I think of it.

Good plan, keep your gear light. I've been thinking about pushing my blacktail range out to 600 yds this season. Currently, I'm comfortable with about half that range. I hunt really brushy terrain in So. Cal. Blacktail here are small and usually only partially visible in the brush. Gotta see a forked horn to take it - no doe season here.

I'll probably use my sporterized Mauser in 270 Win because it shoots sub MOA 5-shot groups. I have to upgrade my bino, spotter and riflescope, though. Still undecided about those details. I may go 15X on the bino. I'm thinking either BDC reticle or mildot. I've been tinkering with both options on different rifles. I need to go light on everything for the same reason as you.

It's hard to keep up. Next week everyone will be wanting April scopes.
