Re: Excellent read on scope selection
I'll go with a 2X7 over a 3X9 for PA hunting. I also mount it as low as possible. The 2 power gives me more field of view in thick cover and the 7 power is more than enough for long range. Heck I killed a ground hog one time at 400 yards with a 257 Roberts set on 7 power. Will admit it took 2 shots cause I under estimated the yardage on the first shot.
I have a Remington pump that wears a 1X4, have killed more deer with that rig than any other gun I own.
The way that you wander is the way that you choose,
The day that you tarry is the day that you lose.
Sunshine or thunder, a man will always wonder.
Where the fair wind blows.
