lets talk optics
so ive got this winchester model 70 chambered in 338 win mag , i am looking for mounts and glass for it

What's your price range?

I put dual dove tail mounts (because of the recoil) and a Leopold 1 3/4 x 6 scope on it and loved it. It was my 'Alaskan 30-06'! ;)

Make sure to use steel dovetail and rings. A low power scope is the way to go. Keep it simple and it will be deadly.

I have a bushnell banner dusk and down 3-9x40 that I really like accurate and the reticle lights up and has five shades of red and green the mounts were given to me by a friend so I'm not sure what brand

What about for longer range stuff

Nateroftheriver 04-09-2013 08:35 AM

Nf rings an bases, as well as a NF scope thats what I run on a christensen arms 338 ultra, but I like the 5x20, or 4x16 power ranges, but my choices may never fit the bill for you. Start buy whats your budget an whats the best within your budget. Only your eyes can tell whats the best for you, go look at as many brands as you can.

oh about $600

Zeiss conquest or bushnell elite 4200 doa 600. Check out the vortex vipers too

thank you guys for your input so far , i am thinking i can speed about $600 i have looked at a few differnt brands so far i know that the high end stuff is good but you cant get a good lets say 6-32 power scope into that much money
what i am thinking is that i am going to use this rifle to hunt big game with but i also want to shoot something whearth it be paper or something alive at grate distances like 800 yards or so
i just want to be able to use all the potential this rifle has
