Re: Picking a long range scope?
Thanks guys. I was in Orofino Idaho today, that's where Nightforce US is based, small world (the steelhead fishing sucked by the way). How much do they cost? There are no prices on the web, is it like a restraunt that has no prices on the menu [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]? As far as magnification goes, I'm just going to have to go with my instinct which tells me that I need something that goes as low as 6X but I don't know how high it should go. Any suggestions for how powerful it should be to say really see a deer clearly, count all the tines, from say 800 yards or even more?
As far as 100 MOA, first off, I hadn't even considered that that wouldn't be enough depending on the cartridge. Learning here. So there is a way to lift it up to compensate for a cartridge that drops more than 100 MOA, but then you could not use it for close shooting, correct?
One more thing, with those turrets is it cool to sling the gun over your shoulder and carry it through some brush or bang it around a little?
