Welcome, I'm from Pittsburgh move to Alaska.
I have thought about that Alaska move for the last 20 years actually
I love the place, and would be happy to give you any info I can. One warning, there is not a moose behind every tree or waiting next to the road waiting to die for you.
The 2 things that have always stopped me were not being able to find a job and therefore a place to call home up there.
Yeah, lately things have been in a recession around here.
Never found a job that was a match for me, zero pipeline/drilling experience and it seems half the good paying jobs are in those fields.
I was a steel worker, but the bottom fell out of that industry
Welcome to AH. Enjoy the forum, it's very addicting.
Any suggestions for a decent not budget busting scope for the .375 Ruger? I was thinking of 2 -3 x 8-12 range with 30 mm tube and 50 - 56 bell. Price maxed at $600. Thanks for all the information and advice so far.
I understand. Though I've yet to work for the oil industry and I'm doing OK, I know a lot of people not so OK. Jobs exist, but it's not easy pickings right now.
For a 375 I would go for a Leupold VX-R 2-7x with a 33mm objective and 30 mm tube. It's going for around $500. The low end will still allow close shots, the high is plenty for the longer distances and it'll still gather as much light as your own eye can see without being bulky.
1.5-5 power Leupold
