Hello and thanks for your input.  I just picked up a Remy Sendero in 25-06 for white tail hunting.  I am looking for suggestions for a scope.  We typically hunt from ground blinds and tree stands over large alfalfa fields,  with shot's ranging from 75 yds out to 350.  Some criteria I am considering:

 

       1.  I would like to keep the objective size between 40 and 44.  I have a couple of 50mm scopes and the one

             knock is the the overall mounting height.

 

       2.  Do I need an adjustable objective for those 350 yd shots?

 

       3.  Illuminated reticle?  Are they worth the exspense or not? 

 

       4.  Scopes I am consdiering:  Zeiss Conquest, Burris Signature select, Nikon Monarch, Lupy VX-III, and

             Khales (off of the sample list).

 

Thanks for your help and input.

 

Sincerely,

 

OUrabmen

A Monarch 4-12 or a Zeiss 4.5-14 would make a good combo for your needs. 350 is along ways out there. Make sure YOU along with the gun and scope are up to it.

25-06 is a great white tail cartrige with the right bullet, do your self a favor and use a bonded bullet or a controlled expansion bullet such as a partition or a Barnes triple shock or something similar. The 25-06 is very capable of 350 yrd shots if you do your part and you use a good bullet. with lighter bullets or thinner bullets ( such as ballistic tips you might not be as happy with the results, especially at close range.
