Ok this is going to be a scope me out thread. I am going to give you a rifle and a budget for optics. I want you to give me your pick for a scope and and reason behind why you picked it. The rifle Action: Surgeon Short Action Single Shot Trigger: Jewell no safety Barrel: Krieger SS With a #14 Heavy Palma contour barrel finished at 30" chambered in get this 284 win with a tight neck. Stock: McMillan A-5 Rings: Badger Ord. Max-50 rings The use: This is going to be my F-class rifle and also a LONG RANGE Ground Hog buster (Like you didn't see that coming). F-class is shot at 800 900 and 1000 yards. Now the Glass This is an F-class rifle which is shot prone at 800 900 and 1000 yards with any kind of front rest and a bag rear (where I am shooting).Ain't no 3-9x40 gonna cut it for glass on this rifle. Give me your pick if this was your rifle and why you picked it. The budget for the glass is $2900 I figure all together this project would be $4000 to $5000 total maybe a little more. I have looked at Zeiss, Leupold mark 4 LR/T and ER/T, Schmidt and Bender, and IOR. This can be any scope you want for $2900 or less. Please justify your purchase.
