Scope for F-Class

3584 Views 12 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  jagermaster
Which scope should I buy? I just bought a Remington 700SS 5r Milspec in .308. I would like to participate in F-Class competitions one day with this gun. Which scope should I buy for $1,000 or less? I have three in mind but am open to suggestions. The three I'm currently considering are:

Sightron's 8-32x56 (SIIISS832X56LRTD) ~$850; or
Sightron's 10-50x60 (SIIISS1050X60LRTD) ~$950 to $1K; or
Bushnell Elite 6500 4.5-30x50 ~$900.

What type of reticle should I pick?

1/4MOA is 1.5inches at 600 yards. Usually plenty good enough. It is hard for me to tell if I need to move the POI .75 or 1.5 at 600 yards. I have a 12-42 Benchrest and the 42x comes in handy some days. Others I don't turn it up past 30. My first scope was 5.5-22 and I still managed to shoot in the high 180's so what I'm trying to say is ......... well I don't actually know but when in doubt do what I do and "google"
I have a stiller action with the integral rail and use stiller rings. Most of my load workup is done at 200y and it is nice to see your groups without having to go down range.
