Scope For Rifle

Recommended Posts

dwag70

I am looking to put a scope on my Deer rifle.. Has a tasco on it now and I get the half dark moon when looking through it.. scope is about 10 yrs old and was a cheap one then... Not looking to spend a fortune and looking for some good names in the 100-150 ranges to narrow my search.

Been looking at

BSA

Nikon

among other...

Looking for a 2-10 or 3-9 and no bigger than 42mm lens ...

Slick looks are a plus hate all the extra knobs and stuff on some models ...

Going on a 30.06 Savage !!!

I use a simmons aetec 2-10x44 on my rifle and so does my wife. I think it is a great scope. They are waterproof fogproof and shockproof and really clear with a good eye relief. I got both of mine on ebay for around $120.

I really love Nikon glass. I've never used a BSA - but they seem to be too cheap to be any good.

Wal-Mart in Vadnais Heights had a Nikon Buckmaster 3-9x40 on clearance for $150 last week....which is an excellent deal on a good scope.

I'm putting a Burris Fullfied II on my Savage .30-06 soon.....I've heard good things about Burris, their glass was pretty bright, and I got a pretty good deal on it. You can get a Burris around $150-$175 on eBay......the Fullfield II is supposedly comparable to the Nikon Monarch.....which is a truly awesome scope. Unfortunately, I couldn't afford another Monarch....so I'm trying out the Burris.

Nikon makes good scopes, I have one and a set of Nikon Binocs that are good. The Leupolds are also excellent value. The Vari X-II on my deer gun has shown the way to many a deer...

There is a pretty good thread here in the hunting thread on "scopes" and it has a good discussion on powers and objective lens sizes too. You probably don't need everything you think you do...

Burris makes a good scope for the money. Would definately recommend checking it out. Thought it was comparable or better than a number of higher priced scopes. For the money I'm very happy with it. Got it on sale pretty cheap and it came with a spotting scope that was decent.

Still bummed I missed out on a Zeiss for around $250. ugh

      That's what I want to hear. Thank you sir

      It’s still a blast to fish
    • Alex wilhelmi
      thank you tom sawyer good to know,

      Walleye numbers are strong. Unfortunate for the fisherman, the perch forage base on the lake has exploded. Lots of 3" - 5" food for the walleye = a tough bite....  
    • Alex wilhelmi
      Ok guys just a question not looking for places to go or tips. Just a question about the fish numbers. I've read multiple reviews that are good and bad, some say the Indians are over fishing it, others say all the sleeper houses are over fishing it. That and when the DNR does their number count. Walleye numbers are really low. Others say it's awesome fishing. But the bass and big walleye and Pike are eating all the young eyes. It's a huge lake it has to be good! Friend of mine went up with a portable Last weekend for the tournament and a 2.5 lb tullibee won the whole thing. And he didn't catch a thing. Long trip from Iowa to get beat down like that. I want to fish this lake so bad, with a portable or sleeper. But is it worth it? Fish numbers good or not? Thanks guys

      Yah, that lake is going to be crazy busier than normal this weekend. Another poster asked about rental wheelhouses a week or so ago and they were pointed toward C l I s t.  You could try that as well since they’re dealer based.

      Not sure who you have tried,  but it can be difficult as a result of the Perch Extravaganza. I have to believe somebody has a shack yet. I'll throw out some name's: Jerry Brandts,  Eddy Lybacks, Kevin McQuoids (Macs Twin Bay), Hunter Winfields, Dickies, Castaways, Agate Bay, Hunters Point, Barnacles, Red Door, Twin Pines, Garrison Sports, Rocky Reef, Appledorns, KJ's Ice fishing, Randys Rentals. Good Luck, hope you find a shack
