  1. Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    Just purchased my FIRST gun! Hooray! The Savage 110 Scout. Please no "why did you get that", "why didn't you get this" stuff. I spent PLENTY of time looking into price point vs gun type, etc. Anyway, I now need to fit it with a scope and have NO idea what I'm looking at. I've seen "no...
  2. Firearms Training
    I have shot predominately open sighted for most of my life, with both eyes open. Now I find myself shooting more and more through a scope, and I am really struggling with sighting. With both eyes open I find I often see double, and have a **** of a time focusing downrange through the scope than...
  3. Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    I recently purchased a ruger percision chambered in 6.5 creedmoor and i am looking for a scope for it. I have never tried shooting at ranges longer than 300 yards so when a friend offered to sell me his rifle i thought why not try it. I am really out of my depth here and have no idea what to...
  4. Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    I'm looking for some opinions on a rifle scope. This optic will go on a cz527 currently chambered in 223 that will be rebarreled for 6mm-222 in the future. Im looking for something that can pull predator duty to 400-500 yards, pig hunting duty at 50-125 yards, and spend most of its time on the...
  5. Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    I recently purchased a Marlin 1895 45-70 and after an afternoon of shooting I decided that I don't much care for the sights on it and am looking for a decent scope to put on it. I plan on using it mainly for deer hunting and looking for something with low magnification, possibly adjustable as...
  6. Rifles and Rifle Cartridges
    Hello, I'm looking to mount a scope on my CZ 550 FS in .308. I have only mounted one scope on [I]anything[I] and that was my CZ 452 Trainer on which I mounted a BSA Sweet 22. I only rarely hunt, and that is almost exclusively varminting (nutria, coyote & fox) so this will be a paper hunting...
  7. Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    Hello, Since I got so much help with choices for a scope for my CZ 550FS, I thought I'd try y'all's patience again. Can someone explain to me the following (in English - truly, I'm not stupid, I earned an MA in history, after all - it's things mechanical I have trouble with): MOA, Parallax...
  8. Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    Hello, I've been shooting, in one way or another with wildly varying degrees of frequencies since I turned 7 and was given my first rifle, a pump-up bb gun. Just to brag a tiny amount, a friend of my father's took my brother and I to a match when we were 14 (me) and 13 (my bro). We competed...
  9. Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    I"m just wondering if anyone has a gunsite scout in 223 preferably and what they did for a scope. Im leaning more toward the forward mounted scope but a good intermediate over the receiver wouldnt break my heart either. Thanks in advance for the input.
  10. Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    I am looking for a riflescope for my father with improved light transmission over the Leupold VX2 3-9 x 40mm as he told me that he wanted a brighter scope. Based on my budget I am thinking about either the Leupold VX2 3-9 x 50mm or the Zeiss Conquest 3-9 x 40mm. Leupold’s 50mm may gather more...
  11. Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    Hi! I’m a translator from Germany, currently working on an action/thriller novel by an American author. There’s a passage in which he describes a shooter taking aim at a long range target using a mildot reticle. Either that passage is written too weirdly or I’m just too stupid to figure it out...

  14. Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    I recently bought a savage mark II just for some plinking and squirrel hunting. I bought a set of weaver mounts and a set of weaver 30mm scope rings. I'm not sure what kind if scope is good for a savage mark II, so I was wondering if anyone has any thoughts or recommendations. Also, I'm opposed...
  15. Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    Hello, I'm looking for an extremely low budget scope, but a scope that can still hold a decent zero, with the tactical look to it. I've narrowed down my two scopes to a Nikko stirling target master 4-16x44 and a millett trs-1 4-16x50. I'll be putting this on a 308, planning to shoot maybe a 3...

  17. Ex-Military Rifles & Cartridges
    I just started hand loading for my 45-70 Trapdoor Carbine. All the factory lead black powder ammo I tried produced tumbling bullets. My rifle has a good bore in specs so I knew I could create a load to produce accurate round holes in my target. After many iterations I found the Nosler 300 Gr...

  19. Rifle, Shotgun and Handgun Scopes
    Hi- I have a question, and forgive me, I am clueless about rifles so I will need a very dumbed down answer please! My boyfriend recently bought a Tikka T3 SS Lite rifle, and said he needs a scope for this. I wanted to get h a scope for Christmas - but I tried to research it and I don't...

    So far I have a Remington 7600P in .308 with a magpul fixed carbine stock, a magpul MOE K grip, Mesa Leo adapter, with a Mil spec buffer tube and a 10 Shot Wild Dog Magazine. I was wondering on what I should do to it next? How I could mount a sling for example and things like other accessories...
