View Full Version : Need help picking a wide field of view scope for my father

Well i noticed he is not really happy with his scope on the gun right now. So i think it is time to repay him for all the good hunting memories by getting him a better scope.

He needs a scope that has a wide field of view (to help with target acquisition) and is easy to manipulate the power adjustment. He shoots a 300 Win mag and we primarily hunt pigs and elk with the occasional deer or coyote also.

I am really not sure of what brand to get or specific model but I was thinking something in the 3x9, 3x12, 4x12, 4x16 area. I appreciate any help, thanks in advance.

that looks like an awesome scope, you think it will hold up to the 300 win mag just fine? The gun does not get shot a whole lot, maybe 20-30 rounds a year.
