Re: What scope for new 6.5x.284 Cooper Rifle?
I have a Cooper Phoenix 6.5-284. On top of it, I have a Nightforce 3.5-15 and I love it. It's on the heavy side for that rifle and if I was to have anything else, it would be a Vortex Viper of some configuration(either the PST or the HS LR).
I had a Zeiss Rapid Z on a 340 Weatherby I used to have. I really like it at the range and thought it was wonderful. Once I saw a big buck and had to take a quick shot, it became somewhat overwhelming. To top it off, I prefer scopes with a 30mm tube. Just bigger, heavier, more durable components in the 30mm tubes.
If money is kinda tight, go with the Viper HS. I have yet to own a Vortex product that I was not impressed with.
