Re: Need some opinion!!

Robin, to answer your question, when looking at comparable scopes, we sell more 50mm scopes than 40mm. That is why the first line would be the 50mm.

4Horn, below would be a tentive price structure for an example.

1.5-6x42 $369
2.5-10x50 $399
3-12x50 $479
4-16x50 $599

These are subject to change as price is being negotiated.

Re: Need some opinion!!

I am new at this, but I think I would like a 40mm Jon you and I have talked about a scope with a 50mm but recently getting my son's .270 ready for hunting season, his has a 40mm and mine has a 50mm. I prefer his. I got caught up in the 50mm craze when it first started and I think my shooting has suffered from it. Just a thought. Oh and I haven't bought one yet, so let me know when they are ready.

Re: Need some opinion!!

How about a reticle that has hash marks in mins? IOR, Nightforce, and others offer these types of reticles. They would certainly make range adjustments a lot less complicated.

Also, choke style rangefinding is showing up in some high end scopes. A blast from the past but it does work very well and is way quicker and easier then ranging with mil dots. So that would lean you towards etched glass reticles.

Low profile target turrents are always nice. Really enjoying the Nikon buckmaster and Elite 4200 turrent heights when hunting.

Good luck with your venture...

Those prices are good for an excellent scope. With those features I'd consider it yes. My preference would be mildot, 4-16x50 with side focus and low profile target style turrets.

The 4x16 would interest me the most. Who's making them for you? With those prices I would expect at minimum leopold quality, and an iron clad warranty.
