    stalking scope advice

    hi all, what would be the best budget scope for a .243 rifle for stalking i dont have much left in the cash pot so needs to be budget. i have a 4-12x50 nikko game king, 3-9x50 swat and a 4-16x50 MTC mamba but its 30mm and the rifle only has 25mm rings on it.

    any advise or sale suggestions would be helpful

    Wouldn't new rings be cheaper?

    If you fancy a new scope the Leupold VXR's really are excellent value for money. but they are 30mm too.

    It has to be a change of rings as the Nikko Game King will be ideal for stalking with your .243

    i will prob need new rings anyway coz they are lows and the scope thats on it is a burris 3-9x40 but its a bit tatty. dont really want to put the mamba on it as its on my hmr and i will be use that 2-3 times a week

    sorry its a mount master not gameking my mistake lol and it has 25mm tube and the rings on the ruger are 25mm, only prob is they are low holding a 40 close to the barrel and the nikko is a 50.

    Close or touching?

    I reckon as close as poss without touching is best, both mine are just a couple mill off the barrel.

    about 5-6 mm so in theory it should be ok as long as the AO dial dosnt touch

    If it already has a Burris on leave it, it is a lot better than a MTC or Nikko.

    maybe someone will swap your rings for 30mm one

    Get a Nikon prostaff mate 3-9x50 brilliant value,dont know how they make scopes this good for the money,I think optics warehouse are the cheapest at the moment,about 160.00,you wont go wrong with one of them.
