    S&B scopes

    Hi there,
    I have 2 scopes, an 6x42 s&b and an 8x56 s&b. just woundering which is best suit on a .308 which is used mainly for stalking around 100-150 yards and the other will go on my .243 which is used for foxes, but also night shooting ie lamping.
    all throught would be great,
    many thanks

    I would put the 6x42 on the .308 and the 8x56 on the 243 just because it gathers loads of light and has a touch more mag when lamping. Great scopes.

    I agree.

    S&B are so well built - make my Zeiss look like a toy.

    I also agree. Still have S&B 6x42 on .308 for stalking. Had 8x56 on .243 as my first foxing rifle.
