Re: Lightweight scope recomedations

I weighed alot of scopes and investigated the weight of scopes when I was assembling a ltwt .270 outfit recently, and the lightest ones were 2-7x32 and 3-9x32. Leupold makes both. I chose the 3-9x32 ( not Leupold ) as the wt was only 2oz more than the 2-7. I was able to keep the whole rig at 7.7# scope and sling included. If you go anything m,ore than a 32mm ocular you'll be adding lbs.

for sure, but I need the big objective diameter for light gathering as I go hunting pigs during night with this gun as well...

And I have the advantage of having 12x power (If I would buy again, the new Z6i 2,5-15x44 or 3-18x50 would be my choice I guess)

So of course the scope is adding weight, but without a good scope (and this means for me also light gathering scope) I could not use the gun for my tasks and it would be worthless for me...

Re: Lightweight scope recomedations

This is pretty hard to beat for a light weight with enough power to hunt those high tops and timber. The coating and class is up graded for a FX-3 model, very, very bright and clear for the price tag.
