Optics on 7mm RUM Sendero SFII

I'm having a hard time deciding what optics to put on my new gun. I've looked at burris, Leup,NF, and WOTAC. My 1k cut off on funds knocks two of those out real quick. I was wanting a LRS tactical,mill dot, or ballistic plex of some sort. NF tickled my fancy more than any but I cant seem to find any under the 1k marker! I am semi new to this game and any light you guys can shed would be welcomed!

Thanks again,
James

Do a search and read some of the reviews on the Sightron SIII. Very good scope.

Re: Optics on 7mm RUM Sendero SFII

To REALLY take advantage of the ballistics of that amazing round that your sendero is chambered for, you first of all need a scope of fairly high magnification AND clearity. In the $$$$ catigory, you are in the realm of a Leupold mark 4, or a vx3 in 4.5 to 14. . Or you could get a vx3 6-18 target model or the standard version with the boone and crocket X hair. The later will be about half of your limits and is a damn good scope. I have owned 2 of them in the target version which were used on hunting rifles, but you may find the X hair a little fine for early or late day shooting. p/s. how do you like the 7rum, and how accurate is it? Do you handload? Ihope this is of help to you. 7stw

I was in the same boat that you were. I bought the sightron sIII 6-24 with balistic plex. For the money you can't beat it. This is my first sightron sope and I am very happy with it. I think the glass is just as good with my leupold scopes. I also have the 7rum sendero SF II and love it.

If going with the Leupold you really need to look over the scope. There QC has gone down hill since sourcing the scopes. I have some of the older leupolds and love them but the new ones are a new breed, not always getting what you pay for.
