How much scope power is need to shoot small groups at 300 yards. Bought a 6.5 Creedmoor Target rifle and need a scope. The range were I shoot has a 100, 200 and 300 yard range. Thanks
OK, you don't give a lot of information here... so let's go with the basics... you refer to "small groups at 300 yards" which leads me to believe "target shooting" at that range. So, the basics: "You can't have too much glass on the bench"!! Let me put that into perspective... I use a 12X42X56 NightHawk Benchrest scope at 25 and 50 yards on a 22 LR! The better you can see the target detail, the better opportunity you will have to shoot well! I like being able to "look into" the previous round hole in the target. In my opinion, purchase as much glass as you can afford... and remember... if you have multiple rifles, buy ONE EXPENSIVE scope and move it between rifles!!
