@SakoGuy - glad to have you joining our group. Every new member brings some new perspectives and our policy is not to offer snarky criticism to new ideas but to dissect and debate an idea so all can learn. If you throw a statement out there and it’s getting a gentle challenge it’s not because someone here wants to make you look bad, it’s because we want to know if you’ve discovered something we aren’t aware of yet. If you keep an open mind during that debate you will find you also can learn a lot here. Irrational drama is the fasted way for a member to get “disbarred” from participation. Our senior members know that and don’t practice some of the BS you will commonly see on other shooting forums. Jerry - moderator
I like VA’s suggestion. 16X is enough magnification for your initial shooting at extended ranges. If you decide to get serious about LRP shooting you will end up going to a different rifle and you can then start looking at scopes that get you into the 20X plus ranges.
