I am having a custom rifle
made for me, 300 wsm
, for my trip to Alaska.
I am wondering if anyone has any good scope recommendations for a lightweight scope that is capable of shooting 600 or more more yards if need be. I am not expecting to shoot a sheep or Grizzly at that distance but a wolf is certainly possible. I am concerned a 5-25 may be too high of power on on the low end for Grizzly and maybe sheep.
Can anyone comment on the max low end power I should be looking at and and the optimal high end power for my situation? And also brand and model of scope you recommend.
I am building a low weight rifle and want a relatively lightweight scope to match. I like being able able to have a ballistic turret on elevation but a capped turret on windage for hunting situations.
I should also add that I would love to stay with $1,000 or so but for for the absolute right scope, I would consider 1.5k on the high end.
I will take any and all suggestions and advice.
Thanks for your help.
