    Scope ring options for Rigby Highland Stalker in 275 Rigby

    I just recently picked up a HS also and have been looking into this. Apparently Ziegler has very good mounts they claim have 100% return to zero when installed properly and the other brand I heard about was Recknagel. Although I don’t know too much about the latter.

    After searching a lot on AH I’ve got the notion that the 30mm are the way of the future and that the older 1” tubes are getting outdated. That the premium models are all 30mm. And that getting a premium 1” tube is not really a thing. Even though it does help it shave a few ounces. Which leads me...

    Initially I was leaning towards the Z6 line since they are lighter. About 5 oz lighter and would serve the purpose of hitting 400 yards with a 10x. But it seems a lot of people prefer the Z8 line. Is there a big difference between the lines besides weight and magnification? As of now I’m leaning...

    Just curious what kind of 1-6 was it? In this case wouldn’t 28x be too much mag for DG? In my case for 400 yards or less. Isn’t 28x too much? Would you ever even go over 10x? Wouldn’t a 1.7-13.3 serve plenty at these ranges? Or is there something I’m missing?

    This place is a great resource. I’ve checked out almost everything on the HS here and it is very helpful. I don’t know if Stevie is the same person as reg leg but he did mention somewhere a few years ago that he thought a 1.7-10x42 would be good for this set up. Which I wouldn’t mind.

    If glass isn’t a factor since they will all be top notch then I guess it comes to weight and how it mounts. Ideally would want it to be a lightweight set up and the Z6 is roughly 1 lb so I think on that front it might be good. The z3 is nice but I do wanna get something illuminated.

    I’ve been leaning toward either the z8 1-8 or the z6 1.7-10x42. But I would like to use low rings and gotta see if the Z6 would allow that or if it has to be a 1” tube for that to happen. Or even if it’s a big deal at all having medium rings

    I was thinking this. But unsure if it really matters that the PMII is more of a tactical optic. Being how it’s 22.26 oz do you think there is a certain weight I should not be going over or trying to keep the build under a certain amount of pounds?

    For kind of a lightweight rifle would the Z6i 1.7-10x42 be a better trade off since it’s 5.3oz lighter for the trade of 3.3 in max magnification? Or is the Z8 different in someway else that the Z8 line is just better?

    I was thinking of the z3 but is that the best of the 1” tubes? I don’t think they are illuminated?

    Did you feel like the 16 max was too much or needed since you only went to 6x or as the PH liked shooting at lower mag?

    Hello everyone, I’m finally in the market for a plains games build and need some help with choosing an optic. After liquidating some random nonsense, rifles and optics(only a T96 4-16x56mm left to go) I’ve got enough for the build I’ve been wanting. So I decided I’m going to start looking for a...
