I’ve mounted quite a few scopes for people with Ruger factory rings. For lack of a better term I find them kind of funky. When the screws start...
Burris is owned by Beretta. So is Steiner. Their U.S. offices are at the same address. Burris is made to a price point. Swarovski has been...
My favorite rifle is my 550 American 6.5x55. I handload 130 grain Berger Hunting VLD’s. I couldn’t get 140 grain VLD’s to shoot accurately or...
I have one scope with an IR, a VX-R 2-7x33 with Firedot 4. I wish I had more. I’d be leery of inexpensive scopes with IR. I’ve looked through a...
If that scope is a Vari X III as opposed to a VX-3i, I wouldn’t buy it. The newer VX-3i has much better glass.
That’s way more magnification than I need.

Henry Long Ranger in .338 Federal with 22” barrel

A 5-25x56 on a .308 hunting rifle? That’s a joke right? What am I missing?
Congratulations on getting your first rifle and congratulations on getting a seriously fine quality rifle.
I’ll stick with the Pachmayr red pad. I have one on a shotgun(pictured) and one on a rifle I don’t have a picture of. The color is exactly what...
Looks like an old recruiting poster for the Greek National Guard. What’s the big deal?
A good bullshit meter?
NIB VX-3i 3.5-10x40 for $319.99
I’m a big fan of the VX-3 1.75-6x32. I wish Leupold wouldn’t have discontinued it.
I debated erasing my post because of the way it might be taken. When I went to do it, it was too late. My apology for coming across with a...
I’ve been a voracious reader since the day I learned to read. You pick up some words along the way.
I don’t believe that to be true. There are many $50.00 scopes that fail under light use, such as the first time they are used.
It also seems...
The scopes on my rifles cost approximately the same amount as the rifle they are mounted on or cost a little more than the rifle. My taste does...
I totally understand.
I have VX-3’s and like them very much. I also like my two Meopta’s better for a 30-06, .270, etc.. Where they separate themselves from the VX-3...
You’ve got to read it. The breadth and scope of stupidity in this article will take your breath away. Everything you ever wanted to know about...
After a long absence the Meopta MeoPro 3.5-10x44 is back at Camera
Land. In addition the price is outstanding. This is my favorite scope by far in...
I like Warne and EGW bases, Warne Maxima and QD rings.
This post says everything that needs to be said IMO.
I tried to hold my tongue but could not. You are so wrong. If you read the background which was provided via link in the first post of this...
I’m glad things worked out so well for you.
I’ll stick with my 30-30.
Never heard of a 6.5 Swiss or 6.5x55 Swiss.
I know nothing about hunting camels but have always assumed they were easy to kill since a straw will break their back.
That ain’t a Swiss cartridge.
I have a 2-7x33 with Firedot 4 reticle. No complaints.

I’ve been purchasing scopes from Camera Land for around ten years. They are the best optics retailer I’ve ever dealt with by a huge margin. Even...
I’ve heard it ad nauseum too.
I’m not but believe I might really like an African.
I have not. I tried two 140 grain bullets, Berger Hunting VLD and Sierra GameKing. The accuracy was abysmal. I tried 130 grain Berger Hunting...
They are excellent. I’ve actually not installed that many but have a high opinion of them. I have a Marlin 336 that was drilled and tapped...
I did not take the photos, they are for illustration purpose only. I don’t care whether a person uses the pointed ends or the rounded ends. I...
I’ve never thought about it.
It’s also not “my” technique. I read about it, it made sense to me so I tried it.
Okay my concern about 1:85 twist barrels not stabilizing 140 grain VLD’s is obviated but that was not the main purpose of my question. I’m...
I don’t believe .5” should make a difference but I’m not an expert. I’m curious, not in a critical way as to why Montana uses the twist rates they...
Please elaborate, I don’t understand your point.
