Title: Best "Hunting" long range scope....
Post by: BKMFR on November 05, 2018, 06:13:44 PM
What's the best hunting long range scope Wanting a good scope that will be able to dial in at 800+ yds but don't want all the tall turrets, but want high magnification for my old eyes...
Looking pretty seriously at Leupold VX-5, but dang I like my Nightforce magnification....

vx5 is a great choice, super clear and 800 is doable with that turret and most cartridges.

Love my VX-5 3-15x44 on my 300 win mag. Swarovski z-5 is another good hunting scope but doesn't dial to 800

Another vote for the Vx-5. :tup:

There may be other scopes that will dial farther or have better glass, but Leupold is still hard to beat for hunting scopes because of their size and weight.

Iíve run a few different myself and shot plenty of others.  Thereís some really knowledgeable guys on this forum.

Most topics such as these revolve around an important question. 

Whatís your budget?

The best scope is probably going to run you $4-5k.  You may want to mention your budget and I'm sure there are plenty of guys around here that can steer you well.

I have a vx5hd and a vx6hd and with a 20moa rail you'll get close to 1000 if not further.  They are both great optics for longer ranges.

Schmidt and Bender dropped the prices on their PM II, they're around 2-2.5K now, used to be 4-5K. At that price range, there's literally no scope in the world that can compete with it. Mechanical accuracy and clarity of that scope are just beyond excellent.

Your going to get lots of opinions, Iíve had the huskemaw scope for about 14 years. I just shot my bull in Wyoming with one of their newer scopes, very nice and easy to use.  Yes it has a turret, but get your yardage and dial it, if no wind, shoot.  My older scope is on my .300 win mag A bolt.

If a scope limits out on adjustment, there is always the option of installing 10, 20, 30moa base to gain that extra elevation.  If he is planning to shoot that far more than one time I would recommend it from the start, there really is no downside to it.  I knew I might stretch the range on my gun so I went straight to a 20moa right when I bought the gun.

The VX-5 I am showing has 58moa of total adjustment, if perfect zero out of the box that leaves 29moa of elevation to work with, which could be right on the ragged edge for 800yrds with a little hold over. 

OP never listed caliber, my lowly 308 is 9.1MIL (31.26moa) to zero for 800yrds, <2turns of the turret on my scope (not a VX-5) and I have much more than that available with the 20moa base.

Scapegoat Enterprises is endorsed by at least 40% of all recently banned HuntWa members, as well as 15% of all level 5 internet operators. Yeah, we're kind of a big deal. ;) I got lazy and let the website kind of fade away since 90% of my business came from Facebook anyways.

My uncle had a really amazing scope back in the day. When I was younger I didn't really pay much attention. He would always be out in the woods adjusting his scope so it would be perfect and suit him well. Place cans on bricks in the woods and shoot away. I actually understand him now, the scope thing he had. I myself have come to understand and appreciate scopes. Been doing a lot of reading on the topic of hunting optics (https://www.atncorp.com/smart-hd-weapon-sight). Fortunately, all it takes is a little bit of knowledge to make choosing a rifle scope as easy as pie. Whatever your level of knowledge might be regarding scopes, the first thing is to decide what exactly you want from your new glass. Make sure what is your aiming/shooting style.

just like a huskemaw, you could just make a simple drop chart based on one set of atmospheric conditions (a less accurate way to do it, than actually inputting real time data) and it would take the same amount of time as a yardage turret. Been there done that.

Title: Re: Best "Hunting" long range scope....
Post by: Bushcraft on July 13, 2019, 10:58:23 AM
Yardage turrets are for people who don't understand precision long range shooting.  Not a slam. They just don't know what they don't know when in comes to putting a bullet precisely on a target, on the first shot, at long range.

I've had guys show up to my classes with Huskemaws and yardage turrets and promptly get educated...and pissed that they bought into some dumb marketing hype.

The single best thing anyone can do for themselves, if they really want to get into long range shooting is:


We have some of the best shooters on the planet right here in the Pacific Northwest and they can shoot any glass they want. Winning and losing can come down to the difference of one missed shot in a 250 round weekend PRS/NRL match. There's just too much on the line for the top shooters to use substandard glass.  I've yet to see a Huskemaw at any of the matches I've been to.  That alone should tell you all you need to know about their product.

Here's a great link for reference purposes:

https://precisionrifleblog.com/2018/12/21/best-scope/

(Note that Huskemaw didn't even make the list and no one is using dial turrets.)

Ive got some learning to do but isnt yardage turrets based off of MOA?  I understand that atmosphere can change which can/will have an impact on what distance you should shoot for, but unless you go full enchilada with a range finder that puts considers atmosphere and angles why go with MOA turret?

Yardage turrets can be made on MOA or MIL turrets, but you usually see them on MOA-based elevation turrents. Unless your just going to be shooting under 400 yards or so in generally the same hunting area, they are a gimmick and you should avoid them per my prior post.

Theoretically, one could pack around a big sleeve of custom dials with every conceivable combination of environmentals and use the dial that matches those conditions (hint: and you'd have to gather the environmental data anyway to determine which custom dial to use for the prevailing conditions), or they could simply gather the data, get the dope (manually or automatically via blue-tooth or a ballistic rangefinder), spin the turret and press the bang button. It can be done in seconds.

Curious to know how many shooters that rely on these speed dials also buy the windage dials.As far as i know the windage dial (we will use Kenton for example)use 1 wind speed for compensation.If you use the pre conceived wind speed past 500 yards you could be off your mark buy quite a few inches.

If you want to hit the target cheat sheets work and are very fast.  :twocents:  :tup:

If you want the ability to consistently dial in yardages and have repeatedly Iíd go Nightforce, or maybe swaro or maybe a nicer vortex. The the scope you mentioned left a lot to be desired in that department for me so I switched to Nightforce and have had nothing but great functionality and clear glass !
Title: Re: Best "Hunting" long range scope....
Post by: BULLBLASTER on July 13, 2019, 07:46:37 PM
Iím not a fan of yardage dials, but for the correct conditions and with some know how they can be effective. Iíve seen a huskemaw dial and shoot a bull elk at 1000+ yards. 2 shots in the kill zone and it was over. That said the conditions matched the turret and it was verified.

I prefer and use a rangefinder that spits out moa or mil corrections based on range and atmospherics collected at the time of ranging. They will give you wind holds as well. I personally like to know what a full value 5 mph wind hold is and then decide what my hold will be at shot time based on what I see through the scope.
Title: Re: Best "Hunting" long range scope....
Post by: Bushcraft on July 14, 2019, 10:33:38 AM
It should be noted for those that are interested in long range shooting and may not know, but the "speed dial" yardage turret dials are just etched by a laser for distances by the manufacturer with the custom inputs you provide them.

They are just external reference marks.  They don't have anything to do with the actual operational internal guts of the scope turrets.

Every click adjustment is going to coincide with the specification of the scope.  So, even if you are using a dial whose custom engraved enviros (or even the bullet load data) are way off for a particular shot, you can still count the "clicks" necessary to make a precise shot.

The problem that comes into play when using custom turret dials that don't fit the existing enviros is that you will have to patiently and precisely count through a lot of those small individual clicks, particularly if your turret clicks are kind of soft and mushy.  And, heaven forbid if you don't have a zero stop feature on the scope and get lost.  Not good!

For example, let's say your dope at sea level for a particular bullet load suggests coming up 41 MOA...that's counting in 164 clicks if you have elevation turret gradients of 1/4 MOA.  Tick 1...tick 2...tick 3...etc., etc., etc.,

So yeah, you can do it, but if you're taking a long range class with a high round count or are thrust into a situation where you need/want to make a shot (when your speed dial turrets inputs don't match the current enviros) and time is of the essence but you have to sit there and impatiently count ticktickticktickticktickticktick 164 times... :o

:sry:   :bdid:    :bash:

So much for "speed dial". :rolleyes:   No thank you.

A normally graduated dial that you can just quickly zzzzzzzzzzip! in your elevation dope (and windage if you don't feel comfortable holding) is what I would recommend all day, every day.

Interesting thing about wind that I had to learn was that wind direction doesnít just move the bullet more or less horizontally.  A left to right wind moves the bullet down and right.  Tail wind moves the bullet up.  Etc.

People actually count clicks? I just send a sighter shot in the general area of the target then hold a little high and left. :dunno: No matter what gun I'm shooting, my wind hold is always "a little left". :chuckle:

If memory serves, I think I just grabbed a short-barreled 30Hate with a rainbow trajectory out of the gun library. 984ish at sea level.

Super lethal on baby mice at that range. Haha!
