Hi,
    Which super sniper should I get?  I am mounting the scope on a WWII rifle that shoots a 7.62x55 round, so a bit more than a .308 Win or 7.62 Nato.  The round has good balistics and so longer ranges will not be out of the question.  I am not hunting with the rifle.  I am target shooting with it right now in all light conditions out to 755 yards.  Most of the time I will be practicing head shots at 300 yards.

There is not a major change in field of view between the 16x (6.98 feet) and 20x (6.2 feet), a little less than a foot at 100 yards.  The 10x has a much wider field of view (13 feet) but I will not need that wider field of view as I will be target shooting at the range.

I love how super snipers have an extreme amout of internal adjustment and I love the knobs.  I wish the variable power scopes had come out by now but it looks like I will have to get one of these.

I have found that in order to get a variable power scope that is 4-16 or 6-20 or something similar, that the scopes lack internal adjustment.  If the scope does have the needed adjustment range, then the price is very high, upwards of $600.

I have used fixed 10x for so long that even my variables sit on 10x and very rarely get moved. I have successfully used fixed 10X to engage targets at 1000 yds.

 

The larger the power of the scope the more picky it will be with where your face is on the stock.

 

Since you are target shooting with the rifle any of the SS line will be an excellent choice. The best advice that I can give you is to try and look through some different power scopes and see which one you like the best.

 

Good shooting,

 

Joe
