i was just wondering what scopes you guys use for your load development, and are they the same as your hunting scopes?
i'm currently useing S&B 8 * 56 hungarians on my .243 and .308 for hunting and load testing having just got rid of a fantastic 6.5 - 20 * 50 leupold fine duplex which was great for targets but lacked light gathering capability and always had me wishing i had the S&B when out hunting.
with my .243 i can shoot 1/2 moa @ 100m with my homeloads which is the thickness of the cross hair (14mm), but i dont think i will be able to shoot much better with the S&B, with the leupold i could shoot single hole groups with premium factory ammo, never really used it in anger with the reloads
i think i need another targetty scope - now that the reloading bug has bitten
so any reccomendations for a good (cheap) targetty scope?
