Hi Guys,

I'm new to the forum but saw this topic has come up a few times before. I got a Parker Hale .375 H&H from my father in-law and am in the process to apply for my license. I'm from South Africa.

I will be using the rifle mostly for bush-veld hunting (Kudu, Impala, Gemsbuck, Blesbuck, etc) and is looking for a good scope. I've read that due to the recoil on these rifles, not all makes/brand scope are suitable.

I've seen the most is using either the Luepold VX-3 2.5-8 36mm or or the Zeiss Conquest 1 3-9 40mm. I see the Zeiss is on special for $399 and the Luepold on normal price is also $399.

What would you guys recommend for this gun? And why?

Note, even though this is a big caliber I will never use it to hunt any of the African Big 5. The biggest will probably be an Eland.

Thanks,

  I actually have have more than one .375 and use the Leupold 2.5x8 on all of them.  It is a very rugged and reliable scope, and has proven so for many years.  The power range is very good for use on a .375 for plains game and occasional use on buffalo.  I like the size and weight of the scope - but the thing I like most about them is that they have never let me down in tough hunting conditions.

Using a Leatherwood CMR (1-4) on my 375H&H.  Works very well, quick acquisition, clear, good FOV, excellent illumination for low light...
