Re: Long range scope
The first thing to be considered when scope "shopping" should be the intended target.
Deer/elk?? Then you don't need a 5 million power scope....700 yards can be easily done with nothing more than a 10 power scope. And to make it easier, it can be done with a Luppy TMR reticle, of something like it.
Too many folks get bought up on "super-power" scopes, that call the Hubble telescope their father, yet folks have making shots of these types for years with less.
Don't get me wrong, I like the big scopes too, but if you want a mountain rifle, and weight MUST be a consideration, then yes, a Luppy "M" series scope with a TMR reticle, will definitely get 'er done.
Now, if we're talking about long shots at ground-squirrels, then lots of power on a big scope will definitely be needed.
Again, for deer & elk.....don't tell me it can't be easily done with nothing more than 10 power, it can.
