i also want to know if i should get a nikon prostaff or a leopold rifleman?? i want to replace the stock bushnell sharpshooter i have on my rem. 770
i want a 50mm and i like the price of the nikons! only 309$ canadian for a 3x9x50mm
I've had 4 over the years. I currently have 2 that I purchased more than 25 years ago at a sale. One is a 4X M8 that is on it's 3rd rifle, a 700 BDL in 308 win. The other a 2X-7X VX1 that is on it's 4th rifle, a Browning A bolt in 300 wsm. I've never had a problem with either.
Both have exceptional clarity. I was wondering what they would be the equivelent to, in the current grades. As mentioned, both are in excess of 25 years.
The VX1 is probably the vari-x 1 and that is equivalent to the rifleman. The M8 4 power is most equivalent to the FX series scopes.
I own more luppys than any other scopes. I have one on my M-4 and one on my sniper rifle. Both have "been used hard and put awy wet" and never given me one issue. Cutomer service is the finest you will ever see.
Picked up a leupold vx III 3.5x10x40 that is very clear its got the limited edtion gun metal paint that matches the new browning its pretty nice anyways just wanted to say thanks and that you guys were right about the leupolds they are way nicer than the nikons
What does "gauge" mean anyway? As used here gauge means the number of round lead balls the same diameter as the inside of the barrel (aka the bore) that it would take to weigh one pound. It takes 12 lead balls the same diameter as a 12 gauge barrel to weigh a pound. The smaller 20 gauge would require 20 balls of that barrel diameter. The larger bore 12 gauge would require 12 lead balls of the bore diameter to weigh one pound.
In general the number of pellets in a shotgun shell...
