Putting together my first setup for stalking - on a tight budget as the whole FAC application/buying gun cabinet/DSC1/paid stalks/buying suitable clothing/etc/etc are adding up!
Found a decent looking Sako M591 in .308 that I am hoping to test soon, and it comes with a sling and mod. So I need a scope and mounts.
Happy with fixed 6x mag on the scope if it makes things cheaper, main thing I'm after is good light transmission - on a recent stalk I compared my sub £300 bins with the posh German made scope on the estate rifle, and it was like someone switching the lights back on! Obviously I'm not expecting the same performance as this, but if you were putting you ££ into shooting in the half light, what would you buy?
As this is a budget approach, eBay options will be viable.
