Hey Chris,

  can you tell me what the minimum eye relief I would need on a Weatherby Accumark in 7mm STW and an 8.5x25 scope?

Not an easy question to answer.


A lot depends on how heavy the whole set up is and how well the stock fits you.  SInce you are using a huge scope, I am guessing you'll be shooting from some sort of a rest for the most part, right? 


I've never shot a 7mm STW.  For a much softer recoiling 280 Rem in a resonably light weight hunting rifle, I like to have no less than three and a quarter inches of eye relief if I have to shoot from the bench (or prone for that matter).  However, I am a stock crawler, so I tend to like scopes with longer eye relief.
