Gotta check this out if you are considering a fixed power.

Better glass is available now but its hard to beat the reliability these old weavers offer and the price aint too bad. If I had the money I'd buy one "just to have". CL

The old Weavers were good scopes.

The old fixed 6x42 was the star of the show today. My 338 LM is still giving me fits, and my 338/06 is fickle at best. The kimber is performing like a champ.

I got a chance to chronograph a few loads today. My 165gr partition load @ 2750, federal fusion 165 @ 2780, and 180gr core-lokt @ 2600fps.

All three loads shot into a 2” group right to the same point of impact. 4” high at 100 yards.

Spent a few minutes hitting the 8” steel at 200 and 300 yards from field positions. Was fun busting out the shooting sticks for a bit. The heavy rifle bipod setups are great when proned out but light and trim rifles from field positions are good practice.

That’s definitely great practice. Sounds like the 06 is working like a champ for you.

1-4x and 1.5-5x is all I have bought in the past 10 years or so. I have higher power scopes on a few rigs, but low power variables or fixed 4x are what have been getting used for all my hunting lately.
