best rifle scope for elk hunting
You can buy really good optics with long eye relief without breaking the bank.
I zero at 250 yds (about 2.5" high at 100 yards). And out to 300 yds you just hold center mass. Why take a shot longer than 300 yds?
The 6X is nice too.
Don't hesisitate to ditch the .338 if you are flinching..plenty of elk killed with 7mm, 3006,308,270......
Shoot the rifle alot and handle it even more...
Have a great hunt
