    Lightweight LR scope

    What's the ultimate scope for a lightweight long range rifle?

    Great results can be had with a 2-12-42 cds VX-6 past 1000yrds.


    The secret to success is practise

    A lot can be achieved with a 12x sight picture in a quality scope

    But you need to get regular practise.

    swaro 3-18x44 good out to 750 odd yards. Run out of dial after that. Not that thats very longrange. Reasonably light too.

    The ultimate scope doesn't exist. Everyone wants/likes different things in an optic, evidenced clearly in the first two replys.

    Currently have 15x on the top end so want at least that. Anyone using a 52mm march?

    Better than the 42(?)mm one by quite a bit. Still a compromise though.

    I can take it to work with me if you want to come grab it.

    Much gain over a light tac, other than the extra mag?

    Smaller and mag range. Turrets are better too.

    Although, I fucking loved looking through my old light LT. If they had a better mag range they would be close to perfect.

    In all honesty, I reckon the March would be an all round better scope if they did a 2-18 rather than 25. Optics would be substantially less finicky.

    I'd buy the shit out of them then.

    With a 200 zero and the use of the post uou can dial up to 33.5 MOA, with 100zero is is 23.5moa

    For me both are sufficient
