Have you considered some type of red dot? Depends on what you plan on using the rifle for I know, but I really like red dots both for getting on target fast and as an option other than open sights on a big bore.

Just a thought.

Royal27 you read my story about the Trijicon RMR.

That's what I would use.......in absence of experience with the other red dots.
Mine is great and as you say, quick and easy!

I did, and I agree. A couple of years ago I kind of rolled my eyes at red dots, but my opnion has really changed.

And if anyone wonders if I really like them on a big bore just look at my face after I shoot.... :)

I used scope Schmidt&Bender Zénith 1,1-4x24 with FD7 reticle for my last buffalo hunt in very thick bush.
I think use this one for an other dangerous game trip.

Hi Bob, how's things going in Wyong?. Down your way a couple of years back but haven't been in NSW since Ebor for the fishing. just getting over some nasty storms up here in Qld, seeing the sun for the first time in a few days. I'm going to NZ in the spring and hope to clean up a few buns while there and perhaps shake the spiders out of my old .303LE (currently owned by my BIL). Cheers Brian

Did you purchase your hunt at a US SCI fundraiser?

Heard you may have load data for the 500 Jeffery,.....any info would be appreciated. Was thinking 535gr, but already had a response that the 570gr would be a better way to go, not sure why.
