red dot or holosight

Postby Joe Grammier on Sun Nov 16, 2008 11:54 am

I shoot a rem. 30-06 at less than 100 yards from a stand with bench rest. I shoot all deer in the neck. My eye sight is not what it used to be (tri focal) I use a 3x9 scope now (7-9 setting) I would like to buy a red dot or holo for around $200. What would you recommend? I saw a Mueller sport Dot 2x7x32 ???? or any other variable red dot??????
thanks, Joe

Red dots and holosights are not magnified, with very few exceptions going to 2x. You are looking at standard riflescopes with magnification and an illuminated reticle. This Leatherwood Buck Country 3-9x50 would be a good choice in your price range.
