Any comments or other recommendations would be great. He has 1" rings for the rifle.
Thanks in advance,
I bought a Nikon Buck masters 4.5x14x40 with the nikoplex reticle and side focus for my
17 HMR Custom and I really like it.
Very good glass.fine reticle,low target turrets and side focus.
The fine retical improved the group size @ 100 yards because the standard duplex coverd
to much target.
I had looked at the 6.5x 18 x40 but it had tall knobs and I wanted a lower profile for hunting.
I also looked at the 50mm and it was to big and not necessary at the distances I was going to
With the side focus the paralax was not a problem.
SWFA has them on sale often but the regular price is under $300,oo.
They will both focus under 25 yards and that can be a plus when hunting.
It looks good and works good.
