Re: New Rifle, Need some Advice on a Scope
Alright so I think I have pinpointed my scopes down to two.
The Nightforce ATACR 5-25x56 SFP (~$2300 street) or the yet to be released Vortex Razor HD Gen II 4.5-27x56 FFP (~$2500 street).
But, I need a suggestion on an absolutely CHEAP scope I can put on my .338 Lapua, so that I can at least throw some rounds through it (make sure no defects in rifle) while I wait on the release of the Vortex (so that I can compare it to an ATACR).
I am leaning towards the Vortex because after viewing their videos and reading reviews, I am really liking their turret/illumination design. The Zoom range is negligible as there is not much difference. Also I do prefer the FFP but it is not a must.
But yeah, anyone know a cheap scope I can throw on while I await the Vortex release? I just want something that will hold its zero and not explode after a shot. I wont be using the dials on it. It will be a set it and forget it scope so that I can shoot some targets and maybe work up some sort of load for the rifle.
Thank you in advance for any input.
