Re: 111 Long Range Hunter in 300 Win Mag

Thanks for the information, I have been using a Zeiss Z-Plex 1000 but have found out that the reticle design is truly for a 308 cartridge not a 300wm I made the mistake of not checking into the exact specifications plus the point of impact changes with different power settings and they tell you to zero @ 500 yards @ 20 power, Try getting target acquisition @ 100 yard deer.Yes long range hunting is a lot of fun and a great challenge but if you have a nice buck or bull at 100 yards that's also very nice.I don't want to make it sound like i,m bashing Zeiss scopes if you own a nice 308 rifle and looking for a great scope the z-plex 1000 is a good choice, just not for a 300 wm. I think I pretty much decided to buy a Huskemaw 20-50 they told me elevation should not be a problem with the 2 turrets and your point of impact doe,nt change with the zoom I would like something for faster target acquisitions and strictly hunting. thanks for the information...............

Ya I think the vortex is a good buy for the money my friend has one on his 7mm that is milldoted. Their was a salesman at sportsman warehouse that also sold him the vortex bino and was trying to tell me they were better than the Swarovski 10x42 I said I dont think so any how not bad glass for the money.

Re: 111 Long Range Hunter in 300 Win Mag

Uh yeah. I have played with vortex spotters and binos and have nothing bad to say but they don't hold a candle to my Swarovski 10x50 EL with swarovision. At first look they are very nice, like many others, but after 10 hour days, day after day, big differences are felt and seen.

Re: 111 Long Range Hunter in 300 Win Mag

Well everyone talked me out of a huskama scope.I bought a Knight Force 5.5x22x56 zero stop,time to start some hard-core learning m.o.a. I think I,ll start with a 300 yard zero and then use m.o.a. out to 1200 yards.Hopefully they have a good ballistic program. Any suggestions

Re: 111 Long Range Hunter in 300 Win Mag

IMHO, you don't need a zero that far out unless you have specific need to do so. The reason I say this is simply that you can zero at 100 or 200 and use a program to manage the rest. I use Shooter on an iPod and it works awesome for me. I also make my own chart for quick reference if I have a quick shot to make happen. The computer program could care less what your zero is, it will calculate everything for you to whatever distance you can shoot.
