Posted in thread: $200 for a scope on 07-20-2009 at 02:39 AM
Take a look at opticzone.com or Bruno Shooters Supply. Some of the best prices on the web. For
that price point, another good option is the Bushnell 3200 3-9X40. It is priced at $189 at
Optic Zone. Go...

Looks like a Modelo 1935 Argentine Mauser 98 made in Belgium and shipped to Argentina in
1935-1936. Obviously, it was sporterized with a new stock. I would have to look at the markings
to confirm it w...

Not sure I would be admitting to stealing a Governmet firearm? Wouldn't be the first war this
has happened but not too cool to admit it to a relatively public forum.

Great optics! Great value! Should satisfy your shooting/hunting needs. I really like the
Conquest series for general hunting, durability, and great German optics. You can buy better,
but not for the p...

I don't have near the experience with Elk that the gentleman who has taken 33. Personally, I
would not engage an Elk with a 308 past 200-250 yds. I just don't feel comfortable, even with a
168 gr bull...

A couple other relatively inexpensive options are the Bushnell Banner and the Nikon Prostaff. I
have 3X9X40s on a couple of my 22s.

I have hunted for over 50 years and have never been called a sissy for hunting with a muzzle
brake. My wife might agree with moron for some of the chances I have taken in pursuit or bear
and boar. At ...

I reread the other posts and believe you are getting good advice regardless which way you go. I
own two of the Vanguards in 25-06, and 270. They both shot sub-MOA out of the box. My theory is

I own the Mark V 7 MM Weatherby Mag with a muzzle brake. The recoil is stout, but manageable.
Definitely, not a bench gun unless you are using a sled or a thick recoil pad. It will take out

A really good starter rifle would be a Marlin XL7 in 30-06. They sell for less than $300. Would
leave you $200 for a scope. The Bushnell Elite 3200s can be bought for under $200. Would give
you an exc...
