    Which red-dot?

    I put this in the Boar section, because continental driven Boar is my first purpose in mind but clearly my question applies equally to use on any running game.

    I don't really see the point of going to the expense of a "high-end" vari-power illuminated scope and I've already got a non-illuminated 3-9x Swaro but it's not quite ideal. Now, since I need/want something else for use at relatively close range (i.e. about 100m and less) on driven, running game a 1x power red-dot sight is what I'm currently thinking of.

    The two obvious types to consider are the Aimpoint tube type and the Docter holographic/reflex type.

    My questions are; Which type, make and spec of red-dot do you guys use and/or recommend for running game?

    p.s. It would be for fitment to a .30-06 Sako Finnbear rifle.

    Heads up for a cheap driven boar sight.

    The reflex off ebay is a damn fine purchase.... John took three in 7 seconds with his when we were in Bulgaria.

    The one that paul posted a link to will work well .I have a opti-mate (edgar bros) red dot that cost £100 5 years ago and is still ticking, it has being mounted on my 12 bore and .308 and now on the .444 and survived hundreads of rounds
    it looks a bit sorry for its self now though!

    Has anyone managed to find a way of mounting one of these on a Blaser saddle mount?

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

    you need a weaver rail for the reflex style optics usually. So a blaser weaver rail is ideal or a weaver base?

    ****, have you seen the price of a Blaser Weaver Rail??

    Cheaper to buy a decent straight tube scope and use my exsiting ring setup.
