Looking for a premium scope for a whitetail gun. .270 rig used for foodplot hunting. Long range for me is 300 - 350 yards. Most concerned about clarity and brightness as many shots are at dusk. Any ideas on the better scope?
If you need an illuminated reticle to take the shot then it's too dark to be shooting 300m.
IMHO it is not necessary to have a fancy reticle at 300-350 yards. People are taking shots like this all the time in Scotland with a 270 and 6x42 zeroed 1.5" high and holding a bit higher as it gets longer.
56mm and illuminated reticles have their place in the woods at short range at the end of legal shooting light.
