suggestions for 6.5 creedmoor tx3 ctr
« on: April 21, 2016, 07:33:01 AM »

I preordered one of the new t3x ctr stainless in 6.5 creedmoor. What do you guys think I should put on it for optics.  casual long range shooter out to 600yds currently.  Will use this rifle for hunting as well.  Would like to keep it around $1000.   I have a vortex viper pst ffp 4-16x50 on my ctr 308.  i would buy the same scope again but am looking for other opinions.

The Viper PST is generally a good scope.  Other choices you might consider is a Burris XTR-II in 4-20x or 5-25x.  Or the Nightforce SHV in 4-14x or 5-20x.

The Sightron S Tac 4-20 seems like a good budget tactical scope.  I plan to get one but haven't looked through this model yet.

I'll bet a Bushnell LRHS would be perfect.

Hello,
 What height rings did you use on the 308 with pst 50mm scope?
