Looking to put some new glass on my custom 280 rem. hunting rifle.
What do you intend to use the scope for????
What is you price range?????
was thinking of a Swarovski, S&B, Kahles.
Maybe even the new Leupold VX7
Anyone of those would be nice scopesyou want turrets are not? If so then the S&B is quite awsome..... in a 3X12 or 4X16..... The VX-7 I am told has excelent optics......
If you want turrets, I´d go for a SB PMII 4-16 x 42;if you want to go lighter and dont care about parallax correction, a PMII 3-12 x 50 with no parallax.
If no turrets, either a hunting SB or a Swarovsky. In the Swaro, beware of the TDS reticle as it s rather thick and in a FFP scope may not be too useful for long shots on small targets.
I`m a Leupold fan. If it don`t cost more than a Leupold it not good enough for me and if it cost more than a Leupold it over priced. Depending on the range you will be shooting would determan the power you want. For mose hunting rifles a VX 111 3.5 x 10 or a VX 11 3 x 9 are ideal. I have them form 2X to 36X fixed and for 2.5 x 8 to 6.5 x 25 vair. Their all great.
