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.

      Last year I went to the show to buy and thought Reed's would be the best and they came through again. I bought a Helix 10 from them and I got a free mapping chip. Below the price everyone else had at the show or outside the show. Also got a cheaper price on a new MinnKota that integrates with the Helix 10. When all the smoke cleared, I had everything in about 10 days.

      Is the access on 22 still open at least?  I was hoping to get the boat out and chase a few cats Sunday, maybe it won't be an option?

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....
