tactical scopes with drop in turrets?

Recommended Posts

I have been looking a while at tactical scopes. the ones with the drop-in turrets that let you set your gun to a certain caliber/grain bullet. Anyways im buying a .308 savage bolt. I just want to be able to adjust if needed because im going to buy a range finder also.

the only one i have seen really in my price range is the ATN but it has the illuminated recticle. I really dont want the illuminated recticle. the thought of the battery going dead when im sighting in on a big buck, or anything else in that matter kind of scares me.

I see cabelas carrys one but im kind of leary of their scopes since im not sure who makes them. Also i see they didnt make the .308 turret. Any other suggestions on a scope anyone

You will still be able to see the cross hairs even if the battery goes dead, so dont let that thought alone detour you from your purchase. I know once a guy has to go without it seems like the end of the world, but trust me as a owner you will be just fine even if!

I believe Nikon maybe makes there scopes, either way there all 100% guaranteed!

thanks for the reply guys. I had no idea that you could still use the scope once the battery was dead.

    • By the smaller size of the trees around it may be a Bob Cat. 
    • looks like one to me. on son inlaws trailcam. date not right. probably may or june. 
    • and a good hanging it was
    • There is no reason he should still be alive! I liked Maggie’s way of dealing with things...good ol’ fashion hanging!
    • Okogie and KBD are both healthy, but sit due to Thibs having his head in a dark place. I sure hope they get some playing time tonight. Looking at the minutes given to Butler, Rose, and Tolliver, I doubt they'll play for awhile.    Bummer, since they both had a good preseason. I can see Okogie developing into Butler 2.0 so why not play him while he can learn from 1.0?
    • Near that same area, I watched a guy from Pennsyvania hit a huge muley buck totally demolishing his truck.  His hunt was definetly ruined.  Consider yourself lucky. Good luck on the rest of your trip and continue keeping us up to date. 
    • It wouldn't be an elk hunting trip if something didn't break.  At least you got the vehicle damage out of the way early and made it to your hunting area.  Should be smooth sailing from here.     Don't forget to let your insurance company know of the accident.  
    • Bummer on the deer- that's a major hazard on these trips. I've been very lucky after several close calls (knock on wood) going out west.    Sounds great so far otherwise. Good luck and have a blast!
    • Nobody knows ice better than an Eskimo. Don't try to slip a foreign language into the conversation to muddy the water. 
    • We arrived to camp around noon. Got my first mulie buck around 2am just east miles city. Will need 2 new doors and a new service door on the trailer. We survived with minimal damage and continued on after getting the buck off the freeway. We dropped our gear and headed right out to start scouting! Made it to the first area I wanted to check and found a 5x5 with 18 cows and a spike. We backed out quickly and hopefully they will remain close for Saturday morning. We are headed back out in the morning to check a few other spots and then come back into town to enjoy a wonderful wild game feed put on by the city. My son is having the time of his life. Can’t believe the amount of wildlife he’s seen so far. Heading to bed after a long night and day of driving. Hopefully tomorrow brings more areas of opportunity.
