Just wanted to say thanks to everyone on here for all your advice and answering questions. Its been a great source of info.

Scope arrived this week, put it on this morning. Had to mount it back as far as I could to get the eye relief right. The illumination isn't that bright during the day just a dim red when on max(8) but should be fine as light fades. Don't really need it during the day anyway. Glass looks really good to me.

Choosing a new scope can be a bit addictive, I could always upgrade in 12 months or maybe buy another rifleBig Grin.

That's a better thought one cannot have to many rifles!

He he he! You will find that once you break into the higher quality glass where you realize how much more you can see, it is highly addictive. You have a nice view from your place. Congratulations.

views are pretty good , ocean views out the front and these guys started turning up last year out the back. Hence the new rifle was required.

The scope is a long way back. Is this right? I turn it up to x10 and adjusted to get the perfect picture. I reshouldered the rifle few more times to make sure it was right.

Don't really want a 3rd eyebrow.

Should be OK for upright shooting but you may want to remeasure for prone, It really depends on how it fits you.  Everyone is different.

I'd like to say "ditto" to that thanks.  I picked up a lot of great info here in narrowing down scope choices.  Koshkin and MeoptaSurujh especially went above and beyond the call of duty in answering specific questions that Customer Service reps from a couple different manufacturers were struggling to answer.  The collective knowledge and experience on this sight in regards to good glass is great!

3-tens ,

I played around with it a bit this arvo, your right standing was fine but other positions it could be forward a little, so I've moved it forward about a 1/4 inch.

Nice rifle, scope, and scenery, Oyster!

Am I correct in saying those are Sika deer?

Very nice playground you have around your house, sir!

Yep Rifledude,

Sambar. They were released 130 years ago. They are normally found in the state south of me , but a few have turned up on my place in the last year. There is the odd fallow getting around too but they are normaly abit more north.You can also find pigs or goats if you go for a drive. ferals are a major problem over here, there's no natural predators. You can hunt all year round on your own place and most of the year in other areas. Spent a few years over in the states mainly northeast ,Vermont area, my buddies were deer crazy and alittle must of rubbed off.

Rancid Coolaid ,

 its a 30-06.Ammo easy to find and cheaper. 7mm rem or a wsm would be good too but ammo can cost you double of the 30-06.In the state south of me the minimum calibre for sambar is 270. Sambar are about the same size as elk and with thick skin, so its good to be able to use heavier projectiles if you want.  

Saying all that, one poked its head out the other day and I had a 222 handy ,may of got lucky but it did the job. Shot placement is key.
