Those individuals who shoot both Small bore and Highpower.....

Post by DavidABQ » Sun Jan 10, 2016 7:42 am

This question is for those individuals who are wealthy enough to shoot both Smallbore and Highpower silhouette.

Do you standardize the brand and model of rifle scope across both competitive shooting platforms?

As long as the magnification and dot size are the same, it doesn't matter. IMHO

Those of you who shoot go the disciplines set your variable powered scope to the same magnification or do you shoot strictly wth a fixed power only scope?

That is great idea except it is a Leupold 25x.

My hold is not very steady and the field of view is incredibly small. I am afraid I would just be throwing money away, but that does make it simpler when you switch rifles.

You don't shale anymore at 40x than you do at 16x.

I have different brands of scopes on my rifles. I used which ever silhouette scope I was able to get, when I set up a rifle. I am using Bushnell 4200 elite, Sightron 24X, Weaver T-16, Leupold FX3 25X. I am looking for 1 more smallbore silhouette scope. I do try to have a 1/2 minute dot in all of my scopes.

I have a new in the box FX3, 25X waiting for me to get back to the states to put it on my HP rifle. It is the same as on my Smallbore rifle.

I have found and purchased 2 Weaver T-24 scopes. So now, I don't need and don't have any extra funds to buy any more right now. Thanks
