I am a big reader here but not much for posting. I am looking for advice or recommendations for a new scope.
I am having my first custom rifle built up for 260 REM. I will be using it as an affordable long range shooting platform (ammo wise).
(Simlar to this one).
The expected range is a 1000 meter known distance range and (hopefully) two practical tactical rifle competitions next year.
I am looking for a mil/mil FFP, variable power scope that offers the Horus reticule. I have done business with Horus Vision before and suffice to say it was PAINFUL and I will not be buying a scope from them, but they do have a great reticule.
Of particular interest are Premier Reticules Heritage scopes and the new Leopold MK4 M5 ER/T FFP.
I also don't know what power scope to get.
I have and am perfectly comfortable with a couple high power scopes that I currently have:
I.O.R. 4-14x50 30mm SF Tactical Scope Illuminated MP-8 Dot
Bushnell Tactical Elite 6500 2.5-16x42mm
The one thing I wish I had was a Mil/Mil FFP rather than the Mil/MOA I.O.R. or the MOA/MOA of the Bushnell.
I practice with the Mildot Master and the Shooter Ready Simulation. I am much faster and comfortable with the Mil/Mil scope setup.
I don't know if something in the x20 upper range would be: Practical, Useful or justify the additional size and weight that goes with the higher magnification scopes.
Thanks in advance,
