A quick question regarding scope choice for a 17 Remington that I have bought from a fellow SD member.
I am intending to use the rifle for mainly sub 200 yard vermin and fox but would like to remain crow and magpie capable to 400 yards. I am thinking along the lines of a variable with an upper magnification limit in the 16-20x region. I would also like to choose a scope with good compatibility with add on NV such as the Archer.
I have heard good reports when folk use the Leupold 4.5-14x50 with the Archer. I think that this scope would be fine on foxes but wonder if this will limit the daytime range a bit when shooting smaller targets. Would the 6.5-20 Leupold have too much mag for the Archer? What are you chaps using? Has anyone been using the Sightron scopes with NV as I have heard some good reports about them.
Thanks in advance
