Thread: Hello All

    Hello All

    Hmm what do I say LOL.

    I am a doting father of 5 and I started shooting just 6 months ago. My mentor has convinced me a stalking trip to Scotland is in order and so that is what we are planning and why I joined here. :-)

    I have, under advice, purchased a 6.5 x 55 Parker Hale and I am now searching for a suitable scope. The scope budget is about 300 and suggestions are welcomed.

    Well that is a little bit about me and hopefully I will get to know a few of you guys......

    Hello mark and welcome
    Im new on here also, plenty of good threads on here and lots of good information. regards the scope my mate has just bought a .243 xbolt and had a MEOPTA 7x50 which had good reviews and cost him 340, other people will have other opinions but it seems a good scope for the money.

    Welcome but be warned, it can become addictive.

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position
