Re: Which scope for the new 6.5 Swede?
On my Savage 6.5 Swede I have a Leupold VX-I 3-9x40mm. This year I sent it back to the Leupold Custom shop and for $120 I had them install custom target turrets....and the for another $40 I had them make me a custom vertical turret for my handload of a Hornady 129gr. bullet.
I gave them the MV as measured ten feet from my rifle's muzzle. Now, all I do is lazer the distance.....and for example if the target is 250 yards away, I just "click" the turret to 2.5, put the cross hairs on the target, pull the trigger and BANG....its dead on.
Something to consider.
