NEED HELP! WHICH SCOPE SHOULD I PUT ON MY R700P LTR?
 
Hello everyone :) I just got my R700p LTR out of jail today and id like to possibly get a new scope for it! I have a tasco world class scope on it but id like to go out to 800 yards eventually so ill need a better scope. I'm torn between a primary arms scope or a vortex scope. here is the primary arms scope I'm considering https://www.primaryarms.com/Primary_...pa4-14xffp.htm

What's your budget like?

Buy a Vortex if you like sending your scope to get warranty repair. A fair amount of them do. My personal choice is the Bushnell Elite Tactical in 3.5-21 or the 4.5-30. Even the 6-24x is a good scope.

I feel your pain brotha... gf's can be so demanding at times :facepalm:
(she better not see this post) I just called her and thot she was with some people and texted I hear a guy's voice in the background? she called asap and pretty much called me out
I didnt even say anything!


With a Budget of $250 I'd say PA 4-14 FFP, I read a lot of reviews on it and they have a 3 year warranty if things were to go FUBAR
I'm saving for a SWFA 10x42 which is $299.99

that, it's only another $50.

Bushnell 3200 10x40 ($199) or SWFA SS 10x42. ($299)

I believe the SWFA's are backordered right now, but definitely worth the wait.

Get the SWFA 10x and dump the Tasco.

You just got a $1000 rifle and you want to put a $250 scope on it......... If you actually want to get out to 800 yards my suggestion is to save up at least another $150 and get a decent scope. Use the Tasco until you can afford one that you won't have to replace again, and then do yourself a favor and chuck the Tasco in the trash can.

Well see, here's my reasoning...the only ranges that i live near by are 100 yards and no more...anytime I get to go to other ranges i.e. where my other family members live, the ranges only go to about 400 max so i think the primary arms or swfa will be more than sufficient :) By the way, just took the ltr out to the range today and cloverleaved at 100 yards with my reloads!!!! :D And yes, i used the tasco :p

my 700P in .300WM wears a SWFA SS 10x42. Great scope and very reliable. If you cant hit something at 800, you cant blame the scope at that point :) its down to you and the ammo...

HbMarine 05-12-2013 6:23 PM

i dont know about 800yds for 250 or even 400. but i do have a rem 700 vsf .308 i used to have a nikon buckmaster with the bdc redicle on it. i could get head shots at 300yds consitently with federal gold match 168gr. I think it ran me like $300. it was a good scope just wanted somthing cooler.
