Hello, need advice on what scope to buy that has elevation turrets? Will be put on 300wn.
Need more info such as:
Use case? Hunting or Target shooting? Hunting mainly in heavy woods [SE TX]
Magnification Range? I prefer 16-18
Reticle Type? ?? Original or duplex if I have the chose.
Illuminated or not? Perfect not
FFP or SFP? SFP
Objective Size? I prefer 59
Tube Size? I like 30 but not a deal breaker if different
Thank you sirI would add to Hugnot's post to be mindful about the nature of the turrets ie. locking/zero stop operation etc. For a hunting rifle that will be carried say on a backpack, locking/covered turrets can be very handy. Also, you need to understand how you will adjust for wind, will you dial or use a graded reticle? Adjusting for wind is very important and sometimes overlooked by buyers. Adjusting for elevation is the easy part these days with all the great range finding tools available.
Sorry, but it only matters to those of us that don’t have it....only thing that matters $$$$$$$$
