Thank you everyone for the great advise.
Has anyone used a Trijicom RMR on a large caliber bolt action in 458 win mag, it would be used primarily for DG
and at 57 my eyes are not what they were 20 years ago.
NO scope, Small scope or Red dot/Trijicom type?

This is always such a personal preference...

If your eyes ain't what they used to be then it is either the small scope, or the red dot. If it is really for DG and the shots are going to be close then I like the red dot. Quick acquisition and handling. I know Jumbo has been tickled with the RMR he put on his double.

I have a .458 Lott somewhere in my future. It will have a red dot on it.

I use a Trijicon 1x4.5 with the green triangle command post and really like it, leave it on 1 power for the brush and if a longer shot comes you can crank it up

TomC, I have one on my double .470NE and can only rave about it!

Never tried on a bolt gun, but cant see any reason it wouldn't be great! As Royal 27 says.............I am tickled with it and will be using it on my buff hunt which starts in 30 days!!! ;)

will let you know after that!

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
