Thread: Which scope ??

  1. #1

    Which scope ??

    Hi all

    Im picking up a Tika T3 in .243 next month, which will be used for Fox / Roe & muntjac. Im used to zeroing out to 300 yds so i guess this would be my absolute maximum comfort zone for range !!

    Im generally out dusk & dawn so my question is what scope would be most suited to this rifle ?? and would i be better off with fixed or variable ?? My budget would be about £600.00. Any thoughts on my options ??

    Many thanks

    look for a secondhand quality variable in the 3-12 or 4-16 range, even if it costs a bit more it will save money in the long run as it will be more versatile

    Hi Airborne
    I would go for the Swarovski if budget allows, I have the 8X56 swar on my .22.250 and have comfortably shot roe, I have lamped and shot foxes out to 250m to 300m. I am about to try for a 25.06 and the scope I will put on this will be the swar z6i 2.5-15x56 BT. If you look up Cluny optics, Robin has always given be the best deal and is nice to deal with… I bought a second hand pair of Swarovski el binoculars from him at the Scone game fair this month for a price I couldn’t say no to.

    Zero at 300yds, for stalking that seems a bit strange. Somebody explain the advantage of that one.
