I need some help. I am an experienced hunter planning a Mountain Goat hunt in BC this fall. I have reciently purchased a CZ in 270 Win. I am looking to put a scope on it and normally I would chose something like a Leupold, however I am a traditionalist and how the gun looks is as important to me as the glass. This new gun has a Mannlicher type stock so I am looking for something traditional. In my search I ran across these Leatherman ART type scopes. The Sporter seems to fit the bill. It has that WWII look and with the ART it sould solve the problem of range estimating on the goats.

Finally, I am also interested in your thoughts on the inclination/declination problem that is sure to arise on this hunt.

This will in all likelyhood be my last big time hunt (all good things must come to an end) so I am trying to get as close to those fantacies from boyhood as possible. I plan to fly in to Central BC by float plane, horse back until the animals can't go anymore then break out the climbing gear. I have done all this before just not together and not at age 57.

 

Thanks for any thought you might have.

Woooaaa  Cowboy -  Do not under any condition pay money for a Leatherwood scope.

You have a traditional rifle why not a traditional scope - say

At the least, take 2 Simmons, rather than the Leatherwood (case one breaks). Any of the above would be great. The angle problem can be solved by Leo's new rangefinder lll which is supposed to have the cosine built into the ranging. Anyway, you will have more problems, with consistent loads than, any scope problem . I'm assuming you have the mannlicher bedding problem well in hand, and your loads will shoot different at that altitude. Is this a current CZ or an earlier Brno action (which has more of a Mauser bolt)? If current the stock scope rings for the CZ are too high. Check out other makers. Generally this is a problem in that the bolt handle thickness on the CZ is too thick and will hit the eyepiece tube if the rings are too low or the eyepiece is to big. Find a gunsmith that will thin this, and allow lower rings which will result in a better check weld. Have fun.
