    3030 scope

    Hi guys

    just been to range with my winchester 3030 however I could not see much of the target at 100 yards I'm using a leupold m8 x4. Was thinking of changing it but not sure ? Also what I change it for with a bit more mag around the same price as I would get from the m8

    thanks

    Here, that set-up you have would be considered ideal. I guess if you can't see the target though, it's time to switch scopes.~Muir

    I was only shooting at a 3 inch target so probably needed a bigger target and start at 50 yards then I think it will be ok. I could see the target just not zero it.

    Bearing in mind what kind of rifle it is, I'd suggest something in the region of 3-9x40. Maybe a Leupold VX I or VX II. Anything bigger and I think it'd look daft.
    My old Marlin 45-70 looked the business with a 6x42 mounted, and was really well balanced as well.
    You can't say muntjac without saying, Mmmmmm.

    If you increase the magnification then you will decrease the field of view. If you cannot "see much of the target" with a x4 scope I have to ask whether you have got the correct eye relief, i.e. is youreye either too close to or too far away from the ocular?

    i can see the target fine was just having trouble zero at 100. Hence why I said now zero at 50 foray to get on paper
