    Hi all

    Just looking at all my scopes and was wondering what to use for the Extreme's , after talking to Mr Lillywhite he has got me thinking and i am not sure what to use. I can blag an FT scope off a few people but not sure i will need it . So what are you lot going to use then or are you sticking with the HFT setups?? I am looking forward to it but not sure of a set still.

    Your thoughts

    Rog,
    I`m going with the 6500 as the leup is fixed and I`ll need all the help I can get especially 15mm@45yrds and with Dave Hats sense of humour might just be taking up knitting as a hobby:D I know Scooby and Ian Harford both use Lightstreams to great effect usually,but then I think most people will use HFT rigs and just reparallax between shoots,
    regards Dave

    ps, prob best to wait and see what replies you get from the better shots mate.
    wouldn`t want to end up like me now would you!!

    If your shooting in the open class there's a maximum of 12 mag allowed. Your also allowed an appeture reducer to help with the close ones. I,ll be using my Leup with a reducer in the front end.

    Burris compact Ra. Set to give a little blur to indicate 53+ yards, no probems on the close ones on 9, might turn it down to 8 though and leave the px set up as I have used it for normal HFT. Have to turn it down to 7 for the 70 yarder though:D

    If you are talking mag, you can't alter that, only the parallax:cool:

    Rog,

    Get yourself a 8-60 March, do a google, set on 12 you couldn't miss, myself will be using my 3-9x33 EFR and will wind it up to 9 if it's a long one.

    Just to clarify,you can only alter your parralex as you aproach the peg, the magnifacation must remain the same for all the lanes.

    Roger and a March scope

    Steve,

    When I was speaking to Mr Lait at Quarry, he nearly fell over when I told him the price fo the March scopes haahaa. Plus he said a few choice words, so I doubt he would opt for one of them haahaa....

    The problem is i confused March scopes with Marchwood. My mate MaT won a Marchwood at Woodlands ages ago and he used it as a hammer so i figure there not the same :D:D:D And yes how expensive?? Think i might just stick with the Mighty Hawke !!!
