    red dot reflex sight

    hi folks, have any of you stalked deer with a reflex red dot sight. all my stalking is in around heavy cover and in forestry blocks. all the shots are 50 yards give or take. im thinking of taking the variable scope off. all shots are off the shoulder as there is no time for sticks etc..

    only boar but have used Aimpoint to good effect - you won't go wrong with one of these and they are cheaper than an Eotech
    For Gods sake - don't tell her how much I've spent

    I saw RED DOT and thought admin had a rush of blood

    As regards you question with no mod and some practice I would look at as a solution....

    Stalking is very much like going to the night club

    I use an Eotech on my AR type .22,for plinking,never hunting,they make it very quick to aquire your target,but accuracy wise I certainly wouldn't want to shoot live quarry at much over 50 yards,but for under that,it might work well with practice.

    I have quite a few on rifles and pistols hunt with them all the time. I prefer the smaller dots around four moa or the triangle, you can get surprisingly accurate with the tip of the triangle. Favorites are Aimpoint, Trijicon Reflex (nice because no batteries), and Leupold. Hunt coyotes/foxes and deer, no problem at any range. I use a tripler on some setups for the longer shots.

    I Have been using a aimpoint micro 2 with a 2 moa dot at a 6 inch bull at 200 yards very accurate,

    I use an Aimpoint 'Hunter S34' on a Steyr Scout .308 for exactly that same scenario. (Dense woodland, shots usually 30-50 Yards). Excellent piece of kit, holds its zero, does the job it is designed for.

    2MOA aimpoint, works a treat in the woods.

    Does anyone here remember the original Singlepoint reflex sight?

    A friend had one on an Webley air rifle and it was very good. Wonder what happened to Singlepoint?
