Same scope on my HMR

BSA Essential 6-24x50 Parralex Adjustable
£70 delivered with Sportsmatch UK high mounts included (rrp £20)
2nd hand but in new condition from ebay


So scope cost me about £45, and it would pass as brand new if you said it was (mint condition)
Bargain :thumbs:

I have a 4.5-14x50 LR Leupold on my Hornet. Which is not HMR for sure, but has similar ballistics and I use it like one :)

I used a variety AGS 4-16x56, Optimate 4-16x56 and eventually settled on a fixed power meopta 7x50. I couldn't exactly see the whites of their eyes but it has a nice, fine crosshair.

Same here, they're great day scopes and work well with nightvision.

mamba 3-12x44 with german 4a reticle.

same optics as the viper but without the huge target turrets and cluttered reticle. cheaper as well.
