Re: Info for Guys Just Starting Out.
I've also found with scopes, you get what you pay for.
In the long run, you are way a head if you save up and spend the same money on the optics as you did for the rifle. My main hunting rifle is a .17 Remington. It has virtually no recoil, but gets carried and used almost daily for 7 months a year. It's worn a number of scopes until I finally broke down and bought a good quality scope 3 years ago. The other $200 and cheaper scopes, just couldn't handle the daily use. Some would last most of the season, some not even a month, but sooner or later, they all started having trouble holding zero.
For all I spent on the junk scopes, I could have bought two good ones.
Who makes a good set of weaver style tapered base for a M 70 LA?
If I can kill that coyote from here, Will you walk out to get him?
