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

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
