308 Winchester scope selection for hunting in Africa
Fantastic to get onto a forum like this!!! Good job!
Gents, I live in South Africa and do hunt in open flats and some bushy areas as well.
I just bought a new 308 Winchester Coyote Varminter with 24 inch barrel.
The shooting distance vary from 100 yards up to 550 yards.
We shoot springbok(about 3 to 4 feet high, foot to shoulder) and big antelopes such as kudu and eland(up to 7 feet, foot to shoulder)
I need to decide on a reliable, accurate and easy manageable riflescope.
My boy(14 years) also uses the same rifle.
I was looking at the BURRIS ELIMINATOR III, but they are incredible expensive. I am willing to pay high bucks for a good scope.
Can you please give me some advise and maybe some recommended models please.
