Re: Optimum scope for 1000+ yard elk and deer custom rifle

This is what I had built in 6mmNorma BR., but you could do the same in any caliber for the same money except I would put a Leupold scope on it because the extra pound of a Night Force can really wear you out carrying for long distances. The stock that you see is half the weight of laminated stocks and is as good as a McMallian A5. Don't worry about the recoil on a hunting rifle. You won't notice it when shooting at your trophy.

Here is what I did & how I did it to my new build.

PS: This rifle is a "Hummer" shoots way under 1/2" at 200 yds.

I recommend the NF 5.5-22x 56mm; 8-32x 56mm may be better depending on your preferences. Cheek weld depends on the rifle. The two rifles I have one on I have no problems with it. I like the Barrett EX Rings. Light for their size, but super wide and strong. I can vouch 50bmg is no problem with this combo, so I doubt 338AM would be.
