1- 1.5-8 or 2-10x Scope recs with BDC

11 posts in this topic

Old eyes. Tried a search.. not really getting  the info I need.

I see the big heavy IOR Val Trident 1.5 - 8 with a good BDC out there...looking at options out to 10x with a BDC for .223 55-77 gr stadia, preferably  with thin stadia lines. Shooting out to 450...suggestions or threads  welcomed.

 

Running  a Vortex HD Razor 1-6 now with good results,  but I needs to see at 300+ better.

I am aware of the pending  release of the new strike Eagle...1-8. Thanx for looking.

If you don't need the 1x on the low end, I have been using a vortex viper hs 2.5-10 with dead hold BDC reticle for open division at matches with a lot of long range. The reticle works great with my 69gr load. Simple easy to remember and great glass. I prefer the hs as it has capped turrets.

The vortex Light hunter 1.5-8 might work as well

You might be able to get a good price on a burris xtr ii in 1.5-8x.  I have a 1-5x on my .223. Wouldn't mind at all putting a stronger one on my .308. 1.5-8 is a little roo low for my pirposes but the grass is super clear and their bdc is good.

A friend of mine is using the same scope in Tac Ops, has a set of iron offset sights on his rifle.

You will see better with the Razor on 6x than you will with the Strike Eagle on 8. Its not all about magnificaiton its about clarity which is dependent on the quality of the glass. I have a new Swarovski 1-8 and its awesome but its not cheap.

I had an IOR.  Loved it.  Schott Glass!  They eye box was a little short but manageable. I used it at RM3G.  It worked great.  I gave it to a friend.

 

I run a Swaro 1.7-10.  Awesome.

Tried the dual focal plane Burris 1.5-8, unforgiving eye relief, not a good thing for 3gun imho. Now have the PA 1-8 in 2nd focal plane. Solid scope, very nice reticle, positive click adjustment, great glass for the price + lifetime warranty. What's not to like?

Yep PA makes an excellent scope for the money. I have two of the FFP versions
