Re: new scope to buy

I have some moa built into my base. Quite a lot actually. I am way down on the adjustment range of the cheap scope I have now. But just doing the calculation on my handy little online calculator I find I might need 22 ish moa to get to 1000 with my 300. Not sure about the 7mm. So this would eliminate the burris in this case. I wonder about the burris tacticle?

Called burris about the Full Field Tact. 15 inches of up and down. That will not help me. I guess I am VXIII or Sightron or maybe a super sniper?

Re: new scope to buy

25_06,

Forgot about the VX-II's. I would definately like to try one out sometime, maybe if I get a dedicated p-dog rifle someday. Got my 6.5-20 LR for $510 (new), so thats what I think in terms of (considered the VX-II, but figured $60 was worth it). If you find one for that today, buy it, as its a steal (out of curiosity, I wonder what Bill is selling them for).

All told, I wouldn't shy away from a VX-II, but I would want it with offset rings or an offset base, as I have had a few guns which had some negative offset build into their bridge height, causing me to run out of ele. quite quick. Good luck.

If you do decide to go with the VX-III and you want a really cool reticle (don't want to dial) Look at Holland's ART. I have one and am saving pennies (dollars) for a second one.
Of course I use mine on my specialty pistol (8.5-25).
Hollands Guns and then click on ART.
The reticle is not cheap, but I really like it.

Any idea what that reticle costs? Scope + reticle? Can I get in my buget? Looks cool.. Coolness factor counts for lots. Ha!
