Telescopic Sight Poll

#1 Postby AlanF » Sat Aug 06, 2022 6:57 pm

There has been a request to run a poll on telescopic sights. This is mainly for the benefit of shooters who are looking at purchasing a scope. You're welcome to leave comments about what your favourite scope is and why. All scope disciplines can participate.

To cater for those of you who say too many scopes is not enough (apologies to Roy and HG), you can choose up to 4.

And also you can change your choices, so to some extent, the data will stay current.

If you have a suggestion about another brand that you think is widely used enough to qualify, say so and after a week or so we may add a couple more (there is a maximum of 10 choices in the poll).

F/Std and F/Open - March High Master 10-60x56 and Nightforce Comp 5-55. Both excellent scopes.

Sporting/Hunter & PSR - Vortex Diamondback Tactical 6-24 and ZeroTech Trace 4.5-27. Too early to tell but both nice and clear at 500yd and producing pretty good results.

Started F Open (with realistically a SH rifle) with a Meopta Optika 6 in 4.5-27x50.
Within a few months - a secondhand NF BR 12-42 was added to the rifle.
I still think the Meopta was clearer - but with the additional magnification - you can play with “aim off”.

I was using a S&B 5-25 (FFP) last time I was shooting F class.
Won an NT Queens and then the following Queens I gave AlanF a bit of a scare.

So, probably not the ideal scope but I has honoured to come second to AlanF when he came to play.

I remember it well Casey #-o .

Yes S&B is possibly one of the two brands we could add. Other possibilities are Kahles, Weaver, Lynx. We'll wait until there's a few more mentions.

Quite a few people are using the Kahles these days I hear.
