My mother did not raise her son to be afraid .... long eye relief will get the correct results...
I'd have or should I I do have Schmidt and benders over leupold on my rifle 6x42 is a great scope I've one for woodland stalking brilliant in near dark same as the 8x56
But for driven game and a bush rifle my 375 H&H wears a 1.5-6x42 I can shoot deer to 200 yards happily further if my land would allow close deer at 50yards the magnification on 6 is not to high for faster shots but also shoot running quarry on 1.5.
But I don't think I'd use a 6x42 on a 404
Before I can change scopes, I need to get 26 mm diameter rings for the Schmidt&Bender, this coming hunting season I will hunt with the 404 Jeffery scoped with the 1.5-5 x 20 ....but looking through the Schmidt&Bender today I can not fault it`s clear and crisp glass...I know I need to try it on the 404 Jeffery the next hunting season...I need to know what scope of the two will be the best to fit and use on my 404 Jeffery, this rifle will be my "to go to" rifle when I walk into my safe come the hunting season.
If I can help from Britain just ask.
@Gert Odendaal the S&B scopes are 30mm, not 26mm. At least the Klassik 6x42 and the 1-4x24 both are 30mm tubes.
They come in 26mm older models then
1" and 30mm more modern
I use :
MeoPro 3-9 x 42 on 400Jeffery
old classic Carl Zeis Jena 4 x 32 on 375H&H
Leupold 3-9 x 50 on 9,3 x 62Mauser
Scmidt & Bender 6 x 42 on 275Rigby
Rookhawk, as DM Shooting pointed out, this is one of the older models from the 1980 era..still solid, still clear as a trout stream in the Drakensberg mountains or in Montana mountain range....
Ah. I made two errors. One, I assumed always 30mm. Two, I thought 25.4mm (1") and 26mm rings were the same thing.
Never heard of 26 mm rings until today! Would have thought the same as you!
now guys don't forget S&B PMII's are 34mm tubes and if you want to get really crazy Zeiss new stuff has 36mm monster main tubes!
Some 1" rings can be opened up to 26mm. 30mm rings can be shimmed, not sure how well this would work on the hard kickers though.
