100 to 1000 yards scope.

Recommended Posts

Gents, 

Bit of advice please I’m looking for a new scope to shoot targets between 100 and 1000yards, not sure what to go for?

Im hopefully mounting it on a 308 RPR so many different options out there, I have a budget around a £1000 new or used.

any advice would be great?

Thanks

I have  been in the same situation as you , in the end for various reasons I settled on two 

vortex viper PST gen two   5x 25x50 FFP ( mine are in MRAD ) with matched rets and turrets . Cost me a grand each .  

took them out this weekend to set them up at , both zeroed at 100 yards 

i have two tikka Tac A1 s 

one  .308 win 

and the other in 6.5 creedmoor 

 

after zeroing the scopes today the results are as follows  from zero 
6.5 creedmoor ( with a 25 moa mounts ) comes in at 
Amount : 21.5 milli-radians (mrad of angle)
Equals : 73.91 minutes (' , MOA / angle)
Fraction : 73 91/100 minutes (' , MOA / angle)


And the 308 win ( with a zero moa mounts and flat rail ) comes in at  from zero 
Amount : 12.5 milli-radians (mrad of angle)
Equals : 42.97 minutes (' , MOA / angle)
Fraction : 42 97/100 minutes (' , MOA / angle)


 I cant moan at those figures , they will get me out to wherever

I’m torn with the tikka and Ruger at the moment haven’t heard they are great rifles but heavier than the Ruger how do you find them? I have my eye on a 20” Ruger locally bit different but a bit cheaper to begin with.

cracking setup though 👏

Big Al was selling his 8-32 Sightron for a good price and it would be well looked after. 

Between the Tikka tac and RPR, by all accounts I’ve read,it’s the Tikka hands down.

That scope was sold a while ago now.
