Scoping a rifle became a dilemma for me. I looked at so many I could no longer make up my mind. I had a shed full of stuff I put on fleabay. Scope fund.

I ended up with the Sig Tango 4. On sale for half price, add the shed money. Came to $170.00 out of pocket. Dilemma done. I can live with the color.

As an older guy, I have been lucky enough to get paid to shoot from the age of 17 to until retirement from DOD at 48 and 5 years of contracting. I am a bit particular on what optics I was willing to bet my life on. I currently own Nightforce (on the Styer .50) Leupold (M-21, AR-10 and work ARs), Kahles (on a Styer .308 and .300 Win Mag) Vortex, Buris, and Zeiss. All are great scopes and make long-range much easier then the Iron sights we shot 1000 yards at military matches with. Whatever scope you decide upon go out and shoot it. Practice reading the mirage and light data on the glass of your choice with different ammo, keep a log.

I mounted a Busnell rimfire scope on my Browning T-Bolt 17 HMR Target/Varmint. This is a limited edition LH model, Monty stock, wide forearm and adjustable trigger. When you live in a RH world you adapt but I always wanted a LH rifle.
  • Barrel - Heavy target • Blued finish • Free floating • Semi-match chamber • Recessed Crown
The scope is a 6 by 18, 40mm and sits perfect. Has the 17 HMR turret caps. Being a T-Bolt helps. As you can see the factory sticker is still on it. Since this is basically a 100 yard rife, if it’s not windy, it’s a good scope for this rifle.
