Thread: A do it all scope

    A do it all scope

    Evening all,

    So, after the post on the V8, I thought I would pose the question, is there such a thing as a do it all scope?

    Can I buy a scope that provides low level magnification for boar and is suited to deer stalking? It robust for wet weather and has high enough mag for foxing, with an equally large objective lens (say - 56 mil)?

    I can think of many reasons why a company would choose not to...but..what do you all think.


    Best wishes

    Have a look at Swaro Z6i 3-18x50. There are clearly plenty of other options out there, but I think this one's a stonking all rounder

    Best all rounder for me is a 4-16x50 schmidt

    A high magnification and a 56mm lens is not my definition of general purpose.

    A Swaro PV in 2.5-10x42 is a do it all, a 2-12x50 at the most. Beyond that you are into specialist stuff.

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    This would be my choice too. I have one of these on a Sako 85 in .30-'06 Spring' and I think it makes a pretty good all round package.

    I've not found one yet. I've been looking closely at scopes since around 1970. There are some very good scopes in this article - Best Tactical Scopes What The Pros Use | PrecisionRifleBlog.com Regards JCS

    I am not in love with anything that claims to do it all. Better to have one thing that does a great job than have something that does 10 things badly.

    I have been looking for a while for dual purpose boar and deer scope. This is the closest I've found for my needs. Shame I cannot afford it 1,5-8x42 Stratos

    The best scope ive used is the Swarovski Z6i1.-10x42 on my combination rifle. Ive shot boar, foxes and deer on driven hunts and deer out to 250m. Hell ive even shot clays with it. Best scope ive got.

    My Swarovski Z6i 2.5x15x44 takes some beating its illuminated , low mag (for Boar) and high mag (for target) it's got parallax adjustment , ballistic turret for different ranges and HD glass its a supurb picture day or night and being 44mm obj it's relatively light weight and low mounting its also very short / compact so doesn't look stupidly long like most

    its to rail mounted aswell so solid as a rock

    it may not be perfect but I think it's damn near close enough
