Thread: which scope ??

  1. #1

    which scope ??

    i currently have a schmidt 8x56 on my 22250 remmy but am finding it increasingly difficult shooting at long range when lamping (400 yds +) sooo my question is how much is my scope worth in excellent condition with no marks to glass and no ring marks to speak of and should i be looking for something up to x16 or as high as x24 ?? i m thinking swaro and dont really want to spend more than 1000 and dont mind second hand

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

    Throwing aside the ethics of 400 yard shots which will no doubt be discussed at length before long.... I would go for a 6-24x for the use described rather than a 4-16

    ok now sit and wait.....

    Did you say 400 or did you mean 40 while lamping?

    It would be cheaper to get your calling technique sorted and work on field craft.

    Lamping 400 yards plus.

    don,t know why so many people are slagging of your idea of 400yds on fox, assuming you carry a wind meter, range finder and have a top quality scope , home load and have a balistics program on your phone, shoot of quad sticks or a vehicle, then you are ready to go, i am not taking the pxxs. 1000 plus the value of your scope 400 may get you a second hand 6 x 24 the make is upto you.

    Never mind new scope, I'm thinking a tape measure might needed first and it won't run to 400m ...

    im impressed you can see anything at 400 yards with a 8x56 let alone identify it!!!
