Saw this article and figured I would post it here. A 5-50 doesn't have much use for me but something like a 2.5-25 would sure be sweet.

You think about what our traditional hunting scopes are zoom wise, vast majority are in the 3X-5X range and this is double the top end of common.
I think that's awesome.

What kind of deer hunting are you doing? Are you in the woods or hunting fields,or possibly both? What kinds of ranges?

I'm putting this on a project. The actual price is $750. Seems like it would meet your needs and wants.

I have the 3.5-12 model and think it's a heck of a scope. Only drawback would be weight but I wouldn't worry so much about that in a stand gun.

I think ideally the perfect scope would be up to a 15x magnification however if your like me, I like to be up close and personal.


Only accurate rifles are interesting.

Some folks need/want them for pushing limits. Got a buddy carrying a .375 to 3100 yards. I can only get ~ 2000 out of my setup. Need to put on a 40 min. base to go further.

I'd like to see a 3.5-30 or 35 x56 myself.

I've heard those SAUMs are well liked for distance shooting.
Is your range there in Holly Pond? My girlfriends family live in the Rock Springs area not far from you.

Now we shoot, when we can, in Etowah county. We did a lot of shooting in Jackson county in the past.
