Nikon broke not happy!!!!!!

After reading the long range scopes at affordable prices I saw where many people were using the buckmasters 6x18x40 thought what the heck Ill give it a try. Well maybe 20-30rds through the .300RUM and it has a rattling on the inside. Not happy. So looking for scope suggestions that wont take both arms a leg and half a teste.

Vortex, Leupold, Minox or Sightron. If the same problem happens again these company's would fix it quickly. I have dealt with Nikon in the past and it was brain damage. I sold the scope as soon as they repaired it. (2 months later)

I think the Sightron SII's are a great scope for the money and in you $$ range. Sightron SII 4-16x42mm HHR Scope SII416x42HHR = $336.00 @ bigsupplyshop.com

Re: Nikon broke not happy!!!!!!

would like a nightforce but dont want to sell my boat to afford it! Hope it dont take that long ill be needing it shortly. My uncle went through three on his rum before he found what he liked that still works. Suprisingly a swift like a 6x20x50 with turrets but they no longer make that model, my biggest limiting range is desire for turrets.

Link below talks about shooting over 1300 yards with the toughest scope I've ever had.

It's not a beautiful looking tactical but it's amazingly tough and accurate. Its very low profile turrets are very accurate.

I have had it on my 300 RUM LSS (no muzzle brake) and also on my Sendero 300 RUM (Braked). Hundreds and hundreds of rounds and still going. The link above was
posted about 4 or five years ago!

Use a 20 MOA base and don't forget the scope is calibrated in IPHY (inches per hundreds yards) in other words 4 clicks equals one inch at 100 yards

15 y/o - 1385 yards. A Great Day!

Re: Nikon broke not happy!!!!!!

Also would like to get something in the 6x18 or 6x20 range. Does the sighttron have turrets or has anyone had any experience with the burris tac 30?

Re: Nikon broke not happy!!!!!!

Nikon scopes are always available in large quantities as "referbs". Several different retailers often have supplies advertised at the same time. What does that tell you??

With that being said - I've got a 3-12 Nikon on my braked 338RUM that has been holding up fine.
