Been looking for a lightweight hunting scope for my 6.5 Grendel deer rifle, and I've mostly settled on the Leupold VX5hd 3-15x44. I really like the htmr reticle, but it seems to never be in stock, as well as not having the firedot. The standard firedot duplex is in stock however.
My question is...
I have just acquired my rifle license in the UK and am looking to start off right and buy one of the absolute best optics I can buy.
I would say I'd be 50/50 hunting deer and vermin or target shooting.
What I'm looking for is scopes with the absolute best clarity.
I was thinking a...
Why Meopta Optika6 5-30x56 in its .308 reticle stipulates that measurements are only valid in 6x, as FFP is to show the same graduation measure regardless of magnification.
Only L6 and L7 would change their size with different magnifications.
or I'm wrong?
Thanks, and stay safe (y)
Looking at leupold's website it appears that the illuminated tmr option has a floating center dot while the non-illuminated version has a solid center crossair. Can anyone confirm this is correct for the non-illuminated version?
I am looking at buying a ZCO scope for my .22lr. I have never used a tree like reticle. I am interested in trying one and was looking at the MCPT3 but am wondering if I should just stay with the MCPT1 will be using for NRL 22 and taking it out to distance
Ahead of the arrival of my ZCO 527 today on the brown truck, I was researching this subject a little bit in an effort to get the most out the optic.
I heard ZCO recommends setting the focus at the lowest magnification within the range. I had previously been told the opposite and to use max...
For those that have used both, how do you like them?
Im about to order my 300wm scope (TT5-25) that only comes with the Gen2xr, but the more i look at center dot reticles (MR4, Mil-C) the more I think I'd really enjoy it.
any issues like losing the dot, hard to see, etc? Worth the upgrade over...
I had a question about adjusting the zero/level/alignment of the scope reticle to the action. I have tried searching but it has been vague in answers. I have a Burris MTAC 4.5-14x-42mm scope. I am going with a solution I am able to do at home inexpensively. (I may change my mind and go to a...
Given a budget of $2K-4K and parameters of:
variable magnification: 5-ish to 21+
generous eye box
bright sight picture at max magnification (exit pupil)
What would you buy?
The eye box and brightness are a big deal for me. I would go postal if I blow that kind...
A few months ago, I posted some info on the hide about the gear the top 50 shooters in the Precision Rifle Series were using, including caliber, cartridge, scope, gunsmith, action, barrel, stock, bullet, powder, suppressor, muzzle brake, and rear bag.
In case someone isn't familiar with the...
I sent my older 2001? (can't remember) 4.5-14x50 Leupold Vari X iii Long Range Tactical in for a new reticle. They said the MOA reticle for SFP 14x was ready. I like it. Cost me around $150 and they cleaned and checked out my scope.
I don't post much, but learn a lot. This may be old...
I have an older Gold Ring that has a mil-dot reticle with round dots and hash marks every half mil. The Leupold web site shows the Mark 4 spotter with a mil-dot reticle with no half mil hash marks, but the image is just a drawing. I have not found another image online.
Do the newer Mark 4...
I was using my TMR reticle scope to range a garage door of a house. Now I've laser-ranged that garage door and it's right at 723 yards. But when I use the TMR reticle AND my mildot master calculator, I get a range of about 800 yards. Now I've looked on the internet and it says that most...
I am very interested in first hand experiences with the NP-1RR reticle for 1000 yard ( and 800-900 too) FT/R competition.
What are the Subtensions?
how do you actually see ("feel") the V-bull with the dots on the sides?
Does it help you with heavy winds?
I find the concept interesting...
I have been using the USO MPR Mil reticle and have found it user friendly for ranging but have not had a chance to use the Gen 2 XR. I was wondering if anyone has compared the two and what you like or dislike about either one. Thanks.
Looking at reticles, and USO has the option of using a red or green reticle.
I know that green is easier on the eyes, etc. reducing fatigue, but I would like to hear from users of both.
Any reason to go with one or the other?
Pricing is same, so apples or oranges?
Thanks for all input!
I know USO can install a Horus H-38 into the scope at time of production, but can it be installed after production?
Does it compromise the integrity?
Does it still cost $400 to install later as time of production?
I wanted to put this out there and see if it is just me. I have a NXS 5.5-22x50 with the NP-R1 reticle. I love the reticle and the application of it with the 1 MOA increments. The problem that I am having is that the reticle is going fuzzy / blurry a large percentage of the time and it just...
