  • Suggest me a scope

    Looking for something like a 2-7, 2.5-8 or maximum 3-9 that has an illuminated reticle..Looking at $500-$1000 range
    It's going on a Browning BLR .308 and really only used for pigs, dogs and foxes, so I wanna keep the weight down..
    Thinking maybe leupold vx3 or vxr, meopta r1.. Open to any ideas..

      Just started using a vx2 2-7x33 and it's a great scope, lightweight and compact. A vx3 or vxr will be even better.

    Leupold VX-R, I'm not a fan of leupold at all but looked through one recently and changed my tune.

      Mate I was the same, never a leupold fanboy, but after using a couple of the newer ones I've had a change of heart. Yeah there's better glass out there, but for a tough compact scope with a lifetime warranty, no matter how many owners. l reckon they can't be beat. And 7x is plenty for medium size game out to 300m.
      Cheers.

    The VXR scopes are nice, I have the 4-12x50 30mm tube. Great scope and very good for spot lighting with the firedot. The firedot is also great in low light conditions, your budget allows enough for a good scope and the VXR's come in an array of lower power scopes in your magnification range. They are very crisp viewing, look through one if you can before ruling them out.

      Thanks for the reply lads.. Went and had a look at few this morning.. Love the leupolds and gotta admit I liked the compact and light nature of the vxr 2-7.. Dot is def daytime bright.
      Liked the 3-9 as well but the 50mm objective may mean ill have to change ring height whereas the 2-7 would be a straight swap..
      Think the 2-7 will be more than enough for pigs anywhere from 0-300m.

      Fixed, fine crosshairs 25mm tube, not too big in the front end, maybe max 40mm or your mounts may need to be bigger, maybe mildots.

      Leopold 2-7x33 just fine, leave it on 2x, maybe not the Crossbones like I have, crosshairs too wide.

    Not sure if they do an illuminated reticle but I've been impressed with the quality of the Nikon optics recently. Worth a look and within your price range.

      It's interesting cos a few blokes I've been out with have rubbished Leupold, then they shot with a 1-4 I've got an were amazed by the clarity..
      They just seem fantastic value for money and great scopes for hunting

    The leupold is a pretty safe bet.

    BUT if you want somthing a little more high end have you considered the Trijicon
