Looking to find a scope for my 375. I love the German #4 reticle. Probably looking for a 1-6x I think that is probably the best power range for what I'm looking to do. Who out there makes a scope roughly in this power range with the German #4

I have seen those. Ran some ACOGs when I was in the army. That was my only experience with trijicon. Good glass though I assume. I may need to look at that. I have an ancient 2.5x fixed Redfield I guess I could use it. Ha ha

Trijicon Accupoint 1-6 x 30mm. Have it on my .416-shoots 1 hole groups. ~$1K. EuroOptic or SWFA. Also the center dot is always lit (no batteries required.)

'Just pulled it out of the safe and took a look...that photo of the reticle doesn't do it ANY justice-the crosshairs are quite thin (and the top post is barely visible-the heavy duplex on the other 3 are much longer.) take a look at one in the flesh and I think you'll like it very much!! I went to EuroOptic and looked through everything they had prior to purchasing this (including Kahles, Swaro, S&B, Zeiss, etc. etc.)

Thanks man. I had not thought about that. I may very well give them a call but I was just looking at the trijicon triangle post reticle and I like it a lot. They also have the 1-6 on sale at Midway for $951. Is that a pretty decent price on those?

Yes! I got mine as a (show) Demo for $900 years ago. Retail is like $1,100ish. Tell Mr. Potterfield we said Hi (and that He's welcome for our business!) LOL

*Leupold can also write "Jim Shockey" on your scope! Something to think about....

I have a Leupold VX 2 3-9x40 with the German #4 on my Zastava 98, in 9.3x62, and a VX 3i 1.5-5 on my 375 H&H. I quite like the #4 reticle. The crosshairs are thicker than a standard duplex. They don’t affect accuracy in a negative way.

I have a Leupold VX6 with a Euro 4 and Firedot. Really like it. They make this in a 1-6. I also have Lieca 2.5 to 10 illuminated. Like this one as well. It has proven very sturdy...

Hey Jim, I read that you’re from Dequincey and just returned from Africa. I’m from Lake Charles and went there in April. What outfitter did you use and would you share your experience and pics? I won our trip to Kuche through DU.

Hello! Nice rifle! I have IDENTICAL rifle in 375 H&H so i was wondering what gunsmith did the work on it? Appreciate it and if you decide there is anything you are willing to take in partial trade, let me know. I have quite a few pistols, long guns and sxs & o/u shotguns as well.

Let me know if you are looking for anything in particular.

Thanks,
Rob

Nice “meeting” you Rick. I made my first trip to S. Africa this year through Kuche Safaris. We had an incredible time. What outfitter do you use? Neal
