I don't know when it will be offered or even if for sure.
Here is a pic of it on a 6.5-284 XP that my son used to down a doe antelope this year at the 265 yard mark.

WT. I just finished a .280 Rem that I built for iron sights. Used an old Lyman 48 long slide rear and a Lyman 93 front globe fitted to a Rem ramp.

My right eye, (master of course) had cataracts so bad that I couldn't even bore sight with it anymore. Had cataract surgery 2 mos. ago and am almost back to 20/20. I shot match rifle and service rifle so long that I got very comfortable and confident with iron and I really like the clean look and feel of a rifle with iron sights.

With practice, an aperture rear and post front are very fast and can approach m.o.a. accuracy. Aperture rear and front on a black bull can comfortably beat 1 m.o.a. if the rifle is up to it. I used to love 600 yd belly shooting with both setups and could stay in the 190's with either. I don't expect to do that now, but do expect 1 - 2 moa on targets. We'll see.

On edit: I forgot to ask Plinker if the .17 HMR is still good at 250-300 yds. I like them, but don't know much about them.

Ian, I apologize for getting off the topic, but us geezers got to stick together. I hope the iron works out for WT, and for me too.

Well , the peep sight did not work , at least with my present tri-focals . :-(

If I had a pair of glasses made up with the perscription of my middle lens ..........

Ended up buying a used Fullfiels II 3x9 off of EBay . Have it installed on my new ballard rifleings Marlin .45-70 .

Have not shot it yet .

God bless
Wyr

Another great article! I have used both the Elite 3200 10x40 and the SWFA SS 10x42 with the same experience. I would add the Falcon fixed 10x to the list, I've got buddies that use it with great sucess. Falcon also makes variable power models that could suit guys worried about target acquisition at close range.

Hello to all
I have just been a member of this forum for 5 mins, and i don,t know where to start

I am in Brantford Ontario and am looking out for a reasonable long range scope, i know very little about these scopes except what i have just read on Cabela,s website

i would be looking at a scope that can be used at distancs of 100 to 400 yards most of the time. This would be mounted on a rem 700 sps

Am i right in thinking i would be getting a better deal by buying on line from a dealer from somewhere in the US,,,,,,,,,,,,never done that yet
