leupold scope for .338 lapua

Postby rickyd0911 on Sun Jan 06, 2013 3:59 pm

Considering the VX3-L 6.5 X 20 X 56 for my Armalite AR-30 in .338 Lapua. Currently have a Millett in about a 8x24x50[approx, in safe, to lazy to look]. OK out to about 600yrds. Would like to be able to eventually work my skill level up tp 1000. Will this scope get me there ? Comments or suggestions please.

I'd personally look into investing in the NXS line from Nightforce. They are as tough as they come and a 338 LaPua recoil to them is nothing. NF has a 5.5-22x and a 8-32x that fit right into what you need. If you want to work out to 100-1200+ yards, the 5.5-22x is a great choice. If you want to really stretch out to 1500+, that 8-32x might be a winner. You're getting excellent glass, some of the best coatings available, and a tough constructed scope with reliable repeatability, a HUGE factor in shooting 1000+. I like the MLR reticle for most applications, but Nightforce does give you a Selectric.
