scope

Recommended Posts

Very new to this ............so hopefully will benefit from your experience.

Have used an air rifle until few months ago fitted with Hawke 3-9x50. Thought it was pretty good for 30 yard pigeons etc....

 

But NOW...............

 

ready to get new .17HMR (NOT SURE MAKE/MODEL YET) and have set budget at £300 FOR THE SCOPE

 

Have seen Hawke HK4010 6-24X56 MILDOT and Hawke HK4014 8-32X56 MILDOT at local shop for £262 and £287 respectively.

 

Any good? Or should I spend the 300 quid on another make/model ?

 

Regards

Have a look at the Burris Fullfield 11 range, i use one on a 308 for stalking and they are a great piece of kit, yank ebay is the best prices.

As long as you can see a bit further than the HMR can shoot and it holds zero, then that's it.

 

Anything that starts 8x and goes upwards is TOO high for me, but scopes and mag and reticules get VERY personal.

 

Plenty of choice for the HMR, actually a VAST choice up to £300, and absolutely no need to spend that much either, but if you can/want to, then why not! :thumbs:

 

PS

I'm guessing you already have a scope though as this goes back to April, what did you end up with?
