'Back Up' Scope choices for a Plains Game Safari- 7mm Mag
As it is now trying to get time to go to S.A. next year for a plains game hunt.
Currently using a Win 70 with a 'Nichols' brand 4x12 adjustable scope, mounted in some quick detach rings.
I thought I'd grab a decent, middle priced, scope to take along should the first have any problems.
What are some suggestions for another optic in a reasonable price range?
Ideally I'd like to stay in the 200-400$ range since this will be a back-up and ideally not used much. I thought it might be better to go on the lower side of the 4x12 power range- for any brush areas that might pop up, but not sure.
