Any recommendations on scopes for 25 mtr outdoor bench rest
Falcon T35. For a cheaper scope lovely clear optics. I nice target dot ret. Can be picked up 2nd hand quite cheap
I've heard that they are very good or very bad its pot luck on which you get. Unless you try before you buy
loads of 35 or 36 x scopes perfect for Benchrest.
Falcon will do 10m for 10m Benchrest, the sightron 36x42 will not.
Best scope I had was a EB36x , found the sightron a disappointment by comparison.
Seen a few older Leupold come up recently, very good vfm for Benchrest.
Now I run Leupold comps 35x on both PCP, and an old bushnell 6-24x40 on my Benchrest springer.
Herbie, look at the Sightron 36 mag, I had one on review a while ago and found it did the job perfectly.
It's a shame that new there is very little choice, I suppose because people are no longer buying dedicated BR scopes, the Weaver T36 and the Leupold BR36 can be found S/h as can the Falcon T35. Alternatively pretty much anything in the 20 to 35(ish) will do the trick provided the optics are nice and clear and the reticule is fine, I use a Burris 8-32 with a fine plex reticule, but I also have a boosted Leupold EFR which has a fine hair and dot reticule, both of these work well. I did do a card recently using one of my Leupold Comp 45's, it was OK but a little IN YOUR FACE!
Ok thanks Neil
Have a look at Athlon BTR 10-40x56
use your ft rig herbie take it down to 30 mag
Sightron SIIISS Competition 45x45 ED
I picked up a new Falcon X50 10-50x60 a couple of weeks ago and find it excellent optics. I compared it to my big Nikko and optically there's not much in it.
Incidentally I was told that the X50 is basically a S3 in a different coat.
Hello, it is my first post.
I come from Poland, so sorry for my English.
All what you need you find in Weaver T36.
This scope was designed for benchrest competition.
