View Full Version : Optics

For years I used Tasco Optics, I now have a 300 WM, with a Nikon Buck Masters 6x18 mounted on it, I need new optics for my 308 Model 70 feather weight, was wondering what a decent to good scope would be for under 400$.

the VX-II 2x7 x 33 would be another good choice.

Do you want a lightweight scope that stays out of the way, or do you want to have maximum objective size and magnification so you can harass gophers at 500 yards?

In addition to the Leupold, a Burris Fullfield II is worth consideration.

I really believe this thread will get better response in another forum - - I'll try it in Gear and Accessories.

One thing's sure - - It's not exactly RIGHT for Handloading & Reloading. ;)
