tactical scopes with drop in turrets?

4 posts in this topic

I have been looking a while at tactical scopes. the ones with the drop-in turrets that let you set your gun to a certain caliber/grain bullet. Anyways im buying a .308 savage bolt. I just want to be able to adjust if needed because im going to buy a range finder also.

the only one i have seen really in my price range is the ATN but it has the illuminated recticle. I really dont want the illuminated recticle. the thought of the battery going dead when im sighting in on a big buck, or anything else in that matter kind of scares me.

I see cabelas carrys one but im kind of leary of their scopes since im not sure who makes them. Also i see they didnt make the .308 turret. Any other suggestions on a scope anyone

You will still be able to see the cross hairs even if the battery goes dead, so dont let that thought alone detour you from your purchase. I know once a guy has to go without it seems like the end of the world, but trust me as a owner you will be just fine even if!

I believe Nikon maybe makes there scopes, either way there all 100% guaranteed!

I would give Nick Bogdan a acall and talk to him. He will be able to direct you in the right direction.

thanks for the reply guys. I had no idea that you could still use the scope once the battery was dead.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
