Looking at a Nikon Buckmasters-opinions?
First off, I appreciate all the information that is made available on this site!
A little history, I have a Sendero 25-06 with a Leupold 6X18 fine crosshairs with Premier Reticles dots installed (15 years ago) at 3,4 and 500 yards. Very nice shooting rifle!
I just acquired another Sendero in a 7mm Remington Magnum and would like to set it up for long range shooting (800-1000 yards). I have a Leupold Vari X III 6.5X20X40 fine crosshairs that I can put on it, but it has two things wrong with it. One, it does not have target turrets (I know, easily solved) and two, it is gloss, not matte (seems trivial, but it just doesn't look right on the Sendero!)
I've been out of the shooting game for a few years, just trying to get back into it. I know several people are going to reccomend the upper end scopes, but right now the budget is pretty limited!
I have run across a Nikon Buckmasters 6X18 with target turrets with the fine crosshairs and dot. Does anybody have working knowledge of this scope? Would it work on this application?
Any other scope suggestions would be appreciated within a reasonable price.
