Vortex scope advice needed .308
|Post Reply Topic Search Topic Options|
I've tried most of the other brands that are anywhere near my price range and I am generally pretty impressed with the vortex line of scopes.
I could use some help or suggestions in choosing a specific model for my use.
Scope price range $400-$800
Use hunting and mid range paper punching/eventually working up to 1000 yards
I need a scope for my .308 but I have to admit iv'e always been a bit perplexed by scopes in general.This rifle is mainly for hunting but I've also been obsessed with accuracy for years.
I don't expect to win any long range competitions but I would like to master the 500-800 yard shots and perhaps get proficient at shots out to 1000 yards which seems reasonable for a .308
Something fairly durable with large solid turrets with audible clicks if possible.
I had a .300 win mag with a Bushnell 3200 elite that I couldn't hit the broad side of a barn with.
It actually put me off Bushnell in general. I have heard they are reasonable scopes and kind of general fair around my neck of the woods but I found it VERY awkward and unforgiving.
The picture through the glass was awful. The turrets were a pain in the *** The lenses were dull and cruddy. It was difficult to get a sight and keep it through the 3200. All the scopes and brands I tried since were MUCH better. I found I really like the Vipers overall.
I know I should have different scopes for hunting and long range target ideally and I should invest a sick amount into my glass but I cant justify all that at the moment. Someday I would like to be able to out shoot my rifle. If I get decent out too 1000 yards I will look into a serious investment in glass and possibly a competitive setup.
This is a one rifle one scope setup so it has to be versatile, durable, reasonably priced a pleasure to use in the close to mid range and reasonable out too 1000 so I have something to work towards. Also if it would do the calculations and place the bullet for me that would be nice lol :P
I would suggest the Vortex Vipers HS 4-16X44 or 4-16X50. I would get the one with capped turrets since you plan on hunting with it. The turrets when uncapped are large enough to function as target turrets and you can get custom turrets for them as well.
