    What's the best rifle scope for the money

    X 2, saved me typing. Horses for courses, and what you can afford. Bushnell scopes are ok in daylight, but they're relatively cheap for a reason. Quite simply, Zeiss, Swaro, Docter, S&B are all expensive for a reason. German optic/glass which is unrivalled. Bushnell isnt anywhere close. However its its for broad daylight shooting everytime, I guess itd be ok. Personally I'd wait and buy once. PS: Check out the Hungarian S&B Klassik. It goes through the same process and QA as its counterpart made in Germany, but much cheaper.

    Nitesite Viper Or Yukon Photon 5X42

    What would be great is a "sticky" with a summary & score out of 10 against all the NV kit.

    New X Sight?

    I take it the usual Scott Country "This is THE one" advertising on you tube (deliberate)! Every other month they're heralding the answer to the maidens prayers of night vision. Its actually sickening watching punters getting fleeced!

    Photon Xt

    Yes it has a side weaver rail for accessories. Ty. Looks impressive compared with other digi stuff ive seen. Going to stick it on a new T3 stainless wirh a titanium moderator. Incidentally, anyone used quick release scope mounts? Good, bad, accurate?

    Are The Police Allowed ??????

    Normal speeding offenses will be ignored, however if its a ban for going too fast, dangerous driving, or drink/drugs driving they'll take your firearms licence off you. Basically they claim that by getting done for the above, you're irresponsible. This isnt supposition, its fact. Friend of mine got banned for doing 115Mph and they took his firearms licence off him. BASC got involved but (Strathclyde) Police wouldn't budge. That was 8 years ago and he still cant get his licence back.

    Im about to get another .243 for night shooting. As i currently use a Tikka M595, i want to stay with this make as i love the 595. My preference is a T3 lite stainless with synthetic stock. Intend fitting a titanium moderator and a Photon XT 6.5 night scope. The T3 is selli g at £855... But..... Local dealer has a new Browning A bolt for 500 quid, and im tempted. Any advice out tbere?

    Photon Xt

    Does the XT have a mount for another illuminator?
  11. Seems like theres a shortage of Nosler 95g .243 bullets. Tried most places in Scotland but they've been out of stock now for months. Managed to get a box of silver tips, but not tried them yet. I hear the most popular (and cheaper) round atm is Hornady vmax 87g in .243. Although they too are out of stock. Anyone used them?

    DSC 1

    Like it or loathe it, DSC and being able to demonstrate your competence is here to stay. Folk can bump their gums until they bleed, but its only going to get harder to go deer stalking. Either embrace the change, or lose out. Its a very simple choice.

    Butler Creek Size

    Measure tge objective lens outside diameter, pop onto butler creek or outlet shop site & get nearest size, or better still get onto fleabay & buy cheap chinese alternative for quarter of the price. Does the same job.

    Photon Xt

    Isn't the XT zeroed electronically? Ie theres a function for movement of X & Y axis?

    Yukon Photon Xt 6.5 X 50

    Different magnification. The new one is for longer range i assume. The higher magnification may be too much for <50 yds shots.
