View Full Version : Rifle Scope Magnification???
June 23, 1999, 06:43 PM
Have been using iron sights but now I am interested in a scope for my Springfield M1A. My question is what type of magnification is sufficient for target shooting at 500 yrds or less? I just want to be able to see the bullet holes clearly.
P.S. Any recommendations for the type of scope mounts for the M1A is appreciated.

Springfield Armory has a line of scopes made for them by Haako in Japan. They have 30mm tubes and range finding reticles. The price is reasonable for what you get. I have one on my Steyr SSG Match rifle. I use the U.S. Optics 10x on my AR-10T but only shoot to about 300 yards with it. If you want some high magnification scopes check out Nightforce, a buddy has the 42x version on his Barrett Light 50. They are also made by Haako.
