Hi All,

i just wanted to gauge others opinions about my possible scope selection for my Sauer 404 barrel in 375 H&H. Currently my Sauer 404 has a 300 Win Mag barrel which is fitted with a swaro Z5 3.5-18x44.

I've got the 375 H&H barrel on the way and together these two calibers will form a light travel/take down/ easily concealed battery for those trips where i spend time holidaying and sight seeing rather than purely hunting. So to cover all bases I was going to fit a Doctor unipoint 2.5-10x50 scope with the 4 Dot illuminated reticle on it. is this too much scope for the 375 considering?

or what else up to $1k in a 30mm tube would you suggest?

regards

I recently purchased a Meopta R2, 1.7-10x42, 30mm tube, illuminated reticle. Great piece of kit. So much so that I’m considering another one for another rifle.

Yes i did consider that as well actually but a shortage of scopes around atm is an issue now. Everything is on backorder with a 3-5 month wait at least.

I have a couple meopta , a ZD and a meostar fixed power. A friend has the r2 3-12 . They are such nice scopes. Glass is so good, I can't say my Schmidt Bender costing double has better glass.

If you get a chance to look through them it would be well worth your time. I haven't looked through the meopro line myself.

Cameralandny stocks the Meostar R2 in 1,7-10x42.

I'm sure I am a day late and a dollar short but if the deal on the .416 falls through let me know and I will buy it.

Kevin,
Played rookie league for the Yankees in Paintsville after winning the College World Series at Fullerton State, in1979. All I could think about was the movie “Deliverance”- lived up in a hollow with some other players. Refused to go on a moonshine run because it was a dry county-no way. Met some of the nicest people on the planet there! Van Lear the home of Loretta Lynn was highlight of summer LOL.

Mule deer and Colorado elk seasons almost done! Hunters driving farm roads, looking for racks, their PH driving them along, I ask that you not pull into my drive. The buck behind me, on the boundary line of the GMU somehow knows. The hunter laughs, I would invite you in to see my Searcy rifles but social distancing prevails, darkness arrives and the buck slides away into secret tree grove...
