Do any of you guys use a scout scoped rig? I am building one up and I would like to put a scout scope on it. What bases & Scope do you use?

The rifle is a .416 Remington Magnum, built on a Remington Action.

Did a search on the Optics and came up with no results.

Thanks,

Headhunter

Headhunter- I don't have a scout-scoped rifle, but my brother has a 416 Rem on a Mauser square bridge with a Burris scope, 2 1/2 power or thereabouts, and is quite happy with it. Don't know the mounts, but if I remember correctly they are QD.

I remember seeing a scout base in either the Midway or Brownell's catalog; made for a Rem 700 and uses the rear sight screws, so it shouldn't be too hard to fit it to most.

Thanks Jmbn, I have been looking around and should not have too much trouble finding the bases and rings. Having a hard time deciding on which scope to go with.

I've just been playing around with the Leupold 2x7x33s and I am quite impressed. Bought one for a Xmas present for a young man and ended up going back for another to keep myself!

These are the basic VX-1 series and sell for about $180. One of the last great buys in America!?

I'm trying mine in a Ruger 500 Nitro Express that currently wears a peep and bead. Whether I'll keep it on there remains to be seen but I really wanted a scope for load development.

I used it on my 375 H&H for a week and all went well. Non-critical eye relief is over 4" at 2X (2.5X actual).

All in all, a nice looking little scope that certainly preforms.... and I'm not a Leupold fan!

Regards,

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
