Just picked up a nice lightly used Rem 700 in a 30-06 for deer hunting. Has some cheap glass on it that I don't want to use ($39). What's a good set of glass to look at for a good price good up to 200yds? Thanks!!
It is a newer 700 SPS model... I will have to look into some trigger work, although it doesn't feel too bad right now. Anyone ever used a Burris C4 4.514x42? Not sure I need the 14x, but it got some really good reviews.I have a Rem 700 in 30-06 and I have the Leupold VXII on it 3-9. Its perfect for what I use it for. 200 yards for at the range and then hunting.
Also, as long as the gun isn't really old you can actually adjust the trigger. Its pretty easy to do, look it up and tinker a little. It doesn't take much to fine tune it to your liking....
Hmm... yea that Burris had me going on the fact that the turret is custom to round/load that you are shooting. BUT if I am going to be making/reloading my own rounds, that seems like not as much of a selling point now as I'll be tweaking my own rounds to find what I like.The only Burris I've used was the black diamond ballistic mildots (worthless).
I'm a really big Millett nut now though. 4 LRS-1 scopes on 3 rifles (2 Rem700, 1 Savage 110BA, not sure where to put the last one...)
In comparable model scope it should be, but I once read someone from Leupold that said the 50mm really didn't make any practical difference over the 40mm in the same scope.Would a 50mm reticle be much better than a 40mm reticle? And if so, would it be worth the cost difference and how much higher it would sit on the rifle?
