Been lurking for a bit trying to find a suitable scope for my rifle.

I use cast lead in a 30-30 ss carbine. Mostly loaded down to pretty much 22 tartget velocities for most of my shooting. Have a few flat out loads for when the situation requires them.



Me 'ol 4x k4 weaver aint bad ..but I can only shoot to about 150 yrds with subsonics.
Beyound that my hold over aint to scientific,. :(
Now Iv'e been thinking...Whacko
Some sort of "tactical retinal" lens be nice. Mil dot or marks etc.
Can maybe get a M8 4x leopold with the coin slot and maybe use a "something creek" turrent knob on it.
Would the scope stand up to constant twirling????

Cant seem to find anything in a fixed 4x with marks or mil dotty thingo's.
Have seen a couple of cheap scopes but the croass hairs seen awfull thick.

Thinking with good optics I can resalute enough image out to 2-300 yrds with out having to lug around the extra weight of a big scope.
I don't need to count the hairs on the nose of the quarry I'm aiming at to place a shot in the right zone.
I think a  4x 36-40mm scope would be about right for twilight shooting as well
as light and trouble free.(read simple... no brainer shooting remembering which power setting etc)

I know this will have been asked a heap of times before.

Veiws / ideas any one

Thanks from Oz

Oops for got to add a low ish turrent knob maybe for the verticle at least might be good.

Not wanting to by a low end scope that will wear loose after a bit and be usleless.
Not into crap like  batteries and stuff either...

YOu could always have Leupold put a mildot reticle and add bullet drop dials based on your ballistics in their custom shop to a 4x scope of theirs.

Seems like leuoplod don't allow the tactical scopes out of the US.

Wonder if I got a 2-7x leo and put a tartget tarrent on it.
Would it then be the same as the Tactical??? Innards etc??? Just wondering.
Don't know  much about the secret squirrel inner workings or such.
And I get confused with all the who makes what with whom when ..then goes cheap and nasty..etc etc.

I suppose a leopold be good but what other choices are out there of at "least" the same optic ..and innards duability.???

This scope will probably see a lot of shooting and twirling.
I don't plan on buying another!!!

I'm drifting over to a lowish  variable say 2-8 with turrents to twirl and still be good
If I do up grade I think either this or a 4x power better be the "ducks nuts" to be worth bothering with besides just having a  marked rectinal.The 4x seems to be about in the same league as me old weaver or not that much better. While the newer v111 have a least multi coatings.

With 2x it may be better for a close quater charging pig than trying to find one in the 4x .With a sinlge shot I prefer not to miss unless I can reload in time to put one in its ear as it runs past.WinkBucky

Any clues for those willing to take this on???

The FX2 is not a tactical scope.  IT is a hunting scope, just get that one and have them put the knob on it you want.
