Hello all, I am waiting on my variation for a 17HMR to replace the 22LR mainly for rabbits, but also for crows, the odd fox and general vermin use.
I want to be able to dial elevation and windage for longer shots and want a higher mag e.g 6-24 or similar. The budget for new scope is £400 ish and prefer 30mm tubes. Mainly for day light use and occasionally with the lamp, for dedicated night use I will fit my Photon NV. I like to have an illuminated reticle.
I have looked at Nikkostirling diamond long range 6-24X50, but not owned a Nikko scope for many years and wondered if any owners out there can comment on build and optic quality etc.? I like the return to zero and other features on this scope.
The new range of Hawke scopes look good, but the adjustable turret scopes (side winder) seem more suited to air rifles.
Any feedback on the Nikko or any other suggestions based on the above would be welcome please.
