Re: reliable scope on a budget

The 3200's are good scopes, don't feel that you have to spend $1,000 on a scope to be somebody on here. If one has to brag about how much he spent on this and that he must be lacking elsewhere. I've bought a few used scopes through www.samplelist.com Great prices, and about any scope ever made is on there. Good Luck

Re: reliable scope on a budget

millett trs-1 for mid to long range or lrs1 for ultra longrange. the lrs-1 should beable to adjust to a mile on your rifle with no angled base. i have a 20 moa base on my 300wm and get 115 3/4 moa of usable adjustment from a 0 of 325 yrds. this puts the first mill dot up at 100 threw 200 yrds

Re: reliable scope on a budget

''I will prob never shoot over 500 yds'', I think I read that in your post;

Burris FF2 all the way for afordability/toughness/and waranty
I own a few and stand by them 100% out to 600 yds +. I own Nikon too but prefer Burris hands down for an affordable tough scope and they have the Bplex reticle and start under $200!

Re: reliable scope on a budget

You mentioned side focus, I only have side adjustment on one of my varmint rifles (.204 Ruger) everything else I hunt with purposely is variable but fixed focus. I practice getting my eye lined up with the center as best I can and it's just one less thing to mess with. The most power on any of my deer rifles is a VXII 4X12 w/ LR reticle and I think 10X is as much as I've ever ramped it up to when taking a shot on a deer. With that said my longest shot has been 360 yards and at least for now my personal limit is 400 as that is as far as I've practiced.

Re: reliable scope on a budget

Nikon and Burris both have drop reticles in relatively cheap scopes that should easily get you to 500 yards, I use nikon's bdc out to 635 with a wsm, If I remember right Burris's reticle doesn't give as many reference points but should still get you close and the 3200 would be the most specific in elevation adjustment if you don't mind mind fixed 10X ..............................I'm always more impressed with the guy that got the same job done without taking a second mortgage. The results ,discipline, knowledge,awareness and skill are impressive, The Money spent sometimes baffles but never impresses me personally.

Re: reliable scope on a budget

So you guys think the Mueller scope can handle the recoil of a .50 or .338lm?

Looking for a temp scope to put on the savage 110BA. I am looking for tactical turrets with variable zoom.

I have heard good things about Mueller, but someone told me that they werent magnum approved. Guessing that means not for large calibers.

I have also heard good things about Falcon scopes, but they are hard to find it seems like. They are supposedly approved for the 338LM.

Any advice would be appreciated.
