    17hmr scope

    hi lads

    I have been given a fair few acres of land to clear of bunnies and the calibre i have been asked to use is a wee 17 hmr (this is due to land and bulidings as well as houses nearby etc) so i pinched a bit of my .243 budget and got a cracker off this forum,

    i sold mine a long time back when i was out of work and i can't for the life of me think what glass to place on it now, i had a old nikko 4/12x50 that was as clear as day but i am trying to hold onto my budget for the 243 as well as get a nice wee scope for the hummer.

    So

    what are you guys using on your 17 hmrs.

    it will be used both under the lamp and in daylight

    thanks

    bob.

    i used this on mine and on a few other rifles An Olivon ranger x56 mil dot ir Attachment 47453,
    try'd one of them scopes made for the hmr !! for me they were a fence post , just get a big x 56 with what ever ret you like , a dot or ir is nice day or night, don't need to bust the bank to get a good scope for the hmr boss just a clear and big obj will do the job very well. i was selling this one but i have put it on the .22 and retiring the old white tail .

    The mtc mamba can be picked up for a reasonable price and are well suited to the hmr 17 or a falcon Merlin or menace had both . Also good with add-on nv if you ever go down that route in the future like shelling peas if not been shot before

    I use a Trijicon 3-9x42 cause I like the "always on" illumination. But that's not going to do anything good to your .243 budget....

    The HMR does not need an expensive scope but I have Nikko Sterling laserking 4.5-14 x 50 for mine, but I use a Pulsar N550 mostly.

    That's what I use on mine

    It does 'white out' a bit at the highest mag settings when compared to high end glass, but like most variables mine spends most of its life between 6-8, occasionally 12!
