  • Which variable high mag AO scope?

    Hi all,

    Looking for a high mag scope for punching paper. (But want variable for possible bunnies etc)
    Want AO which can be dialled down to as little as 10m...

    This is what I've come up with. Any thoughts or opinions? Anything else I should consider?

    The ones in bold are the ones I'm more seriously considering:


    Cheers,
    Zennon

    Your next decision should be based on the amount of elevation and windage adjustments that are available on each scope. Then are the retical in first focal plain or not and how thick the retical is. While you don't want it to be to thin for hunting you do want it to be thin for targets. And to top it off you have to be comfortable looking through it.
    I'm a fan of the weaver 40/44 series and another one to look at in the price range you are looking at is the Redfield range.

      Yeah did look at the Redfield Revenge 6-18x44 for $250 (since the Redfield at my LGS looked good) but it doesn't have an adjustable objective aka parallax

    The Weaver T36 seems like a out of this world price ? It is a really good scope for range work but you will struggle out shootin Wabbits.

      Yeah should have bought the T36 yesterday lol - it was a pricing error - its fixed up now ($445)

      (Prices in my table are from OpticsPlanet excluding postage)

    See if you can get at least 25 times for shooting targets out at 100m you can't hit them if you cant see them.

      don't discount the 'Japanese' made Tasco's either.
      they're not bad for the money.

        Lots of them say
        Parallax Setting: 15 feet to infinity

        So one assumes that means they are AO?

      if they have external parallax adjustment, either in front or on the side, then yes.

      Google "scope anatomy"
      This might help you identify various aspects and features of scopes.

        Ok so visually (I've only been going of the written details)
        if the front looks like it has a ring which can spin (AO), or;
        if it has three turrets (side focus/side parallax adjustment)
        then it should be parallax adjustable

      probably just a typo.
      it would actually be 1/4moa.

        You'll find, that most of those scopes you have selected, will not parallax adjust as close as 10m , more likely 50yd/45m.
        The most important thing in life is not knowing everything, it's having the phone number of somebody who does!

          Column "M"

          (the one I ended up getting (the Mueller 8-32x44) is 10yds)
      Working...
