Ive been lurking around the forums for a few days. Ive noticed you all like Schmidt and bender, Leupold. i wish i truly could afford, but i cannot. so i need something in my range.

couple ive been looking at.

http://www.competitor.net/millett-6-25x56mm-lrs-1-matte-illuminated-multicoated-reticle-1-4-moa-click-long-rang.html

http://www.competitor.net/vortex-riflescopes-vpr-m-05fp.html




ive been eye balling some big power scopes for okay prices but i am relatively new to scopes. more of the AR-15, AK-47 kinda guy i only have 1 bolt action soon to change. im looking at buying a 7mm Rem mag model 700 Remy so i need a heavy scope to help.

weight is not a issue i like my equipment heavy to help me stay steady i have noticed since shooting by buddy's 30-06.

also i just registered my account, and i apologize for horrible grammar my major definitely was not English.Big Grin

  With no idea what the rifle will be used for it makes it hard to answer your question. Is it for hunting, punching paper or both? Need to know your budget also then the opticly unchallenged guys on here can help.

Welcome to the OT. Your budget appears to range up to around 450.00 so you have some options for your interest. I don't think you'll get alot of encouragment on the Barska since your budget does allow you better choices. The Millet and Vortex line have a good following but I'm not so sure about the Sightmark. With your AK and AR interest you may consider shopping lighter on the higher power scopes. Unless you intend on shooting beyond 500yds. a 10 or 12X scope will do fine. That also helps you get into slightly better glass and tactical options. The first thing that would help is to try to better define your goal. Your thinking of getting a 7mm and the long range scopes are worth considering. So let us know a little more detail about your goals. Thunbs Up

SWFA SS 3-9x42 Tactical Riflescope Mil-Dot SWFA SS 3-9x42 Tactical Riflescope
Stock # - SS39X42
  • Matte
  • First Focal Plane Mil-Dot
  • 30mm
  • OK for .50 cal
  • 0.1 MRAD
$599.95
This is what I have on my 300 Win Mag and I really like it the glass is real good and I like the features it has like first focal plane which allows you to use the mil dots for known hold over marks - like a balistic reticle that works at every power which is cool.  The knobs are real easy to re set to zero once you have it sighted in you just remove the top screw then set the knob back to zero. After that you can use the knobs to dial in correction to compensate for trajectory at long range.  This scope is way nicer than any that you mentioned and probably worth twice what it cost.  I would definately buy a third one the two I have bought are awesome.

You can get 7mm mag rifles with different profiles of barrels some light some heavy. 
http://www.savagearms.com/firearms/models/  Savage just came out with some that have a muzzle break that can be turned on or off which is a nice feature and they shoot well.
http://www.tikka.fi/pdf/specs/LiteStainless.pdf    SAKO/ Tikka T3 rifles are a rather light profile barrel but have a guarantee they will shoot groups under one inch.
http://www.remingtonle.com/rifles/700p.htm  Remmington 700P police sniper rifle comes in 300 WM or .308  as does my favorite Remmington the R5 Mil Spec  both of these have a heavy barrel which I like.  If you hunt it you may want a light or medium profile where if it is a bench gun a heavy barrel might be better for you.   I would suggest you consider the .308 cartridge the ammo cost about half as much and I would suggest the R5 or the 700P for bench guns.

Right, im looking at possibly hunting coyote eventually. but for now just punching paper and trying to learn how to shoot long range id like to reach out to 1k but thats more of a pipe dream then a reality.

for now more punching paper and learning. 450 USD is very top end. still have to by the other stuff also.

Coyotes ---  You should be looking at a .243 at the most a .308 nothing heavier you will likely not enjoy a magnum rifle.

 Savage offers a couple great varmint rifles in different calibers with different twist ratios and most varmint rifles have a heavier barrel contour. Plus with the Savage system for a couple hundred dollars later on you can switch to a different caliber by changing the barrel with out the need of a gunsmith. With the money saved buying a Savage you could afford to upgrade your scope and have the best of both rifle& scope.
 Not many can argue that Savages are probably the best "out of the box" for accuracy, and with a little tweaking and load developement you can end up with a rifle that shoots in the .2-.3 grouping as long as you can do your part.
