Re: Quality of different brand mil dot scopes?
I assume the mil dots are calibrated at max power and I think 24x would be way too much for a shot at 500 yds. The particular area that I elk hunt has lots of cedars and pines and the elk appear in small openings sometimes. I would prefer lower power for that kind of range while still having my mil dots usable, and my max will be 1000 yds assuming that I am confident that far. I have not as of yet practiced farther than 600 yds but intend to stretch that out when the 300RUM is done. The 265 gr Wildcat ULD RBBT at around 2900 fps (more?) ought to be impressive downrange. I'm just guessing on the velocity, I'll take what the rifle gives me safely. I'll check out the Super Sniper scopes you suggested.
The critters have to win every time, I only have to win once.
