    Anyone ever use their illumination?

    Out of all the hunts I have been on, over 30+ years, I have only needed illumination three times. But those three times, it was invaluable to make a successful hunt.

    6.5 Sherman Short

    I love my 6.5SSs. One pushes a 156 @ 2975fps, the other pushes a 150 SMK @ 3038fps. Look at the ballistics of the 150 SMK and you will be pleasantly surprised. And they HAMMER game.

    6.5 Sherman Short

    What about 7mm 184 Hyb F Open or 190 LR Hyb vs. 6.5mm 153.5 LR Hyb or 156 Elite?

    6.5 Sherman Short

    I am actually running H1000 in my 25SST. I will have to look at my load data for charge weight, but I am well below max in my rifle, and getting 3230+ suppressed. H1000 has a good density fill, and is super temp stable which is what I was after. I am sure N565 would wring out the speed, but I...

    6.5 Sherman Short

    I have run them in both of my 1:7.5" barrels, a couple others, and even two 1:7" 6.5SAUMs. They all have shot amazingly. Ran them up to 3100ish with no problems out to 1200+. Berger states "1:8" minimum". "Minimum" and "optimal" are two different things. I have shot them in some 1:8"...

    6.5 Sherman Short

    I have been running the 144 LR Hyb and 156 Elite in my two new 6.5SSs. Both are crazy accurate. My 26" 1:7.5" 6.5SS is pushing the 144 Hyb @ 3086fps for my most accurate load. Even my fire forming loads @ 2977fps are ridiculously accurate. My 20" 1:7.5" was originally built to run the...

    For $1500, in the used arena, that puts you up there in quality. Watch the classifieds here. Used Premier Heritage Light Tactical 3-15×50 Used NF NXS 3.5-15×50 https://www.snipershide.com/shooting/threads/wts-lnib-nightforce-nxs-c527.7001993/ Used Leupold Mark 5 3.6-18×44...

    Used glass options?

    Isn't Nikon getting out of the scope business?

    Used glass options?

    I bought a Vortex Strike Eagle last year for my daughter's 6.5CM. 3-18×44, but I think it is discontinued. Great scope for $300ish.

    Tangent theta where to buy?

    Richard at CS Tactical can, and will, hook you up. I have purchased 5 scopes from him.

    Used glass options?

    If you have anything like a 3-9 now, use it for 400 yards. Save your pennies until you can really step up in quality, like $800+. Heck, I shot my pronghorn last year at 450ish on 7x, and shot a coyote in March at 921 on 7x too.

    Recommendations On a 3-15 Under $1k

    That is exactly what you said.

    Recommendations On a 3-15 Under $1k

    "New 4-20 ZCO for a couple hundo more" than a used K318i? Show me where, and I will buy three......today. The OP is asking "under $1k". $3500 new price is no where in that ballpark, or even the same league. You are comparing Little League World Series to the MLB here.
