Re: Scope for Sheep Hunting Rifle
I've been on two sheep hunts. The first I had a 3x9 Leupold Compact on a 700 30-06. Next one I had a Rem TI in 06 again, topped with a VX-III in 2.5-8. Both guns are gone now, replaced by a custom 7-08, which had a 2.5-8, but just got upgraded to a 3.5-10 CDS that's only 2 ounces more, but better latitude for mounting, and perfect for the max ranges I'll shoot to. Long way around to say you might wanna consider that one or the 4.5-14 CDS version for a dual purpose rig. I'm a huge Nightforce fan, but I don't think I'd run one on a sheep/goat rifle.
