Looking at scopes for a Remington VS 308. Use: punching paper 100 - 500 yds.

Was thinking about this Leupold 6.5-20X40 (30 mm with side focus). Then send to Leupold for M1 elevation knob. I am +/- mil-dot as for fixed ranges, seems fine duplex just a functional? Total price approx. $670.

 

Looked at tactical scopes, but mostly seem to have 50 mm objectives. Is there any reason to spend extra for a "tactical" scope?

 

Thanks

 

Eric

Eric,

You are basically trying to turn that scope into a tactical scope by adding the M1 knobs.  A 50mm lens is beneficial with that much magnification by creating a larger exit pupil.  The fine plex would do but a mil dot is more versatile as the dots can be used as hold overs in addition to ranging.  Resale on a fine plex 6.5-20 M1 with out a mil dot is tough.

 

If you are just target shooting in good lighting conditions and don't care about resale....the scope you describe would be awesome, in fact we have discussed having Leupold custom make some for us so we can have them on the shelf.

Guys, look at the dates.  This is a thread from 2004, that was resurrected by a spammer.
