Thread: Scope magnification you last squeezed the trigger with?

  1. #1

    Scope magnification you last squeezed the trigger with?

    A simple question, if you use a variable magnification scope for stalking, what magnification did you have set last time you shot a deer.

    I have a 3-12x but seem to find that when stalking I shoot more with 3x than any other magnification.

    Not on deer but 2 charlies I shot tonight.
    Both on 32x with the nightforce/envis/laser nightvision setup on my.243.
    A 250yd dog and a 170yd vixen. Both head shot. Well pleased.

    Last deer was off-hand 80-90yds, 6 mag, the two before that were 261m and at 24 mag. Same rifle.
    I often adjust the way I hunt depending on what rifle I take along.
    Had a lever action 30-30 with iron sights in my hands the other day, might get it as
    it will be usefull for our rainy weather.

    I happen to like fixed scopes of around 6x but do have a couple of 7x scopes although one has never been fitted to a rifle since I have owned it. The Variables are all set on 6x and that's where they stay. I do have some older 3x and 4x scopes as well and was getting used to shooting with receiver sights (aperture sights).
