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.

      Jayden,   Hey I grew up in Austin! I know of some great places to camp in Ontario if your interested. You would need to bring your own boat 16' would be fine, but it can be done super cheap! I normally camp with a good group of guys and it costs about $250 a week per person. That includes all gas and food for the trip!

           I work during day and live 2 miles from Blue lake ... i get home and hop on the 4 wheeler and have about 1 hour to fish.   The access on the lake is to darn deteriorated ... will see if things firm up next week, 60 and sunny today is the forecast.  Gonna be a close one even if it cools down next week.   We shall see ... Boy does ice fishing help winter pass fast (if that is possible)
