Charlie,

On another note, do you need any brass for you 257 Roberts? I have 200 pieces of once fired Remington brass that is doing nothing here since I no longer own a Bob I'd like to get rid of. I also have (85) 117 gr. Hornady SST's bullets and a partial box (17) of Hornady VX 58 gr. factory ammunition I'd toss in with the the deal if you're interested?

I have a 2.5-8x32 Zeiss Conquest which they stopped making 4 years ago. Best scope they ever made for big bores, if you can find one! Recoil proof and clear as gin!

Arrived at a temporary, no-cost solution today. Took a look at my hunting rifles, figured out that I had no plans to hunt this season with my .30-30 so I removed the 2.5x Leupold from it and mounted it in the QR Talley Rings and now it sits on the Model 70. It is one of my favorite hunting scopes, as it is lightweight and clear with excellent eye relief. Yes, it's a little lacking in magnification for long-range shooting. Still, it has done quite nicely at 200 yards before.

At least I've got a scope on the rifle and I can start getting a better idea of how it shoots!

With that nice looking quarter rib, there's not a lot of room for a large objective bell. I tried mounting an older 3-9x Leupold, but the objective lens wouldn't clear... I'm thinking a 36mm objective might be as big as this rifle will take without going to tall rings.

Look for a range report sometime in the next month or so.

Guy

I think it looks perfect Guy and for shooting out to 300, I'd be just fine with that 2.5X Leupold. Almost got one for my shotgun, but I ran across a used 1.5x5 a fellow traded to me. I like that little 2.5 though. I think it's probably about perfect on the shotguns, big bores and 45-70 for the durability standpoint. Not much to go wrong with it. That's for sure.

Looks like a perfect match to me! This is where pairing the right scope for the gun comes together, and where a low power 1" objective bell belongs..... on a medium-large bore quarter rib barreled bolt gun. You'll never need anything more, but if you put a 1.5-5x on it.

Yes, I've got a 1.5-5x Leupold on the other .375 H&H and it's working out really well!

What a problem to have, dealing with a pair of good .375 H&H rifles! I'll try to cope... :grin:

I put one of the same on my slug gun. Pretty nice scope. First one I have owned. Those lower powered Leupold's make great hunting scopes and they don't take up a whole lotta room. Should be pretty tough too. I think the one I have is an older VXIII though..

These small scopes are not great for shooting small groups at 100 yards but they are great for hunting. At least not mine with the #4 reticle in the scope.

I agree 100% Charlie. Maybe not awesome for shooting tiny groups, but hunting is where they excel. I wished I could have gotten a #4 in mine as that has become my favorite reticle for hunting, but I got this scope in a swap, so it didn't cost me a dime. Maybe down the road, I will have Leupold retrofit a #4 down the road.

It's funny, all the sudden, in todays hunting, people balk at a 4-5X scope for hunting. I had an old Redfield 4X on my 7mm Rem Mag and it seemed to shoot fine. Killed alot more stuff with that combo than any other and man, was it is a tough combo.

Time to resurrect this dinosaur thread, even though we may bring a tear to Guys eye since he sold the rifle. Seriously though, has anything changed in nearly 8 years?

Does anyone have any first hand intel on Trijicon Accupoint 1-4? I have been reading feverishly in recent days after my last trip to the deer woods and not being able to see my crosshairs.

I don’t own the Accupoint, have a couple of the 1.5x5 Leupolds. Buddy of mine really liked that 1x4accupoint for close work in Alaska and Africa. Took his record book bear on the Peninsula five or six years ago with that scope.
I ran trigicon ACOGs on my patrol rifles for about a decade or so. Very reliable. Second gulf war vets clamoring to change to EOTech, in any event my experience with the brand is limited but favorable.

Thanks salmonchaser. The lack of batteries with the Trijicon is appealing to me. I’ve had more than one battery leak and ruin what housed it. But maybe that’s not an issue with this stuff though.

I imagine the same technology applied to the hunting scopes and the ACOGS. That dot always worked, middle of the night, middle of the day, didn’t matter.
Scott did say to get the red illumination, he did use the green on one of his trips and thought it could be frustrating in the alders, heavy cover.

Ended up with an eBay Trijicon 1-4. Open box special $200 less than new. eBay and alcohol is sometimes expensive

LOL! Yes... (y)

But I think you made a great choice anyway.

Nice looking set up gb. That should work for anything you want to shoot at. 4X will always do. CL
