After that, I'll give you two very simple reasons: 1. More recoil!!!!! and #two is one many do not think abouut 2. MUCH larger trophy potential! I'm still trying to remember when I heard someone say that they were devastated that the squirrel they missed due to bad parallax, or low light performance, or their scope simply getting out of "sight-in" occurred. Now, when it comes to a .270 and deer, antelope, elk, moose, bear, or... well, you get the drift..............Thanks Guys.
I can buy a more expensive scope, but wanted to know why. I have a 3 x 9 Bushnell Dusk Dawn on my Henry 22 and it is great for plinking at around 50 yards. I was wanting to know why I needed more scope on the 270.
Your solution is easy. Get a Weaver K4 or K6. (K4 if you hunting woods/brush - K6 if you hunt more open areas).I just bought my first rifle, other than a 22. It's a Ruger 270.
I plan on deer hunting with a long shot being about 100 yards. Is there any need to put more than $100.00 in a scope?
Rainman, For around $100, after its $50 Rebate, you can buy a Nitrex TR1 3-9x42 from www.natchezss.com It is a discontinued scope that once sold for around $300. Heck of a buy for a scope with good glass and well built. It is basically a Weaver Grand Slam scope. Check out this webpage.
