Mal Birrell

I've ordered my Howa in 7mm rem mag. Now for a scope and mounts.
Thinking sightron 6-24 but unsure which reticle. I want covered turrets.
Would like a pic rail. Anyone used the steel warns one ? And which mounts and height ?
Thanks, Mal

Hi Mal. Check out my thread if you want too? I imported mine from USA .
I got a 25133 Sightron from 4Scopes. It's a fantastic bit of kit.
Here's the info page for it

From the Sightron USA Web Site, here is a link to one of their newest STAC scopes.

They also have 4-20 power versions as well.

Here is the 4-20 version link with their MOA3 reticle like I have in my own scope.

Re: Which sightron
Thanks guys. What do you see as the advantages of say the 4-20 as compared to the 6-24 ? Just the lower min power ?
Thanks,Mal

Re: Which sightron
For most hunting you actually do not need a lot of magnification unless you are shooting way far out as in 800 yards and beyond.
I like to see a decent field of view while walking and keep my scope on a lower power then. Am more than pleased with the
2.5 to 17.5x56 in my scope for any shots. Focus is good from 10 yards to infinity as well.

Steel Warne Rails are good kit Mal, happy with it on my 06 and it is still working perfectly on that rifle and it gets knocked around in the bush.

Burris Medium Signature Zee rings are the go and you can cant them if needed with the supplied insert.

And Reticule type will depend on intended use and to some degree your eye site. Nathan recommended the Mildot for me as it is a little heavier in the crosshairs for bush-twilight work.

I'm starting to gear up for a 6.5mm build and that rig will get a MOA reticule 6-24 as its is for Varminting, Spot lighting & LR target work. May even get an Illuminated if the budget will stretch that far.

Can't comment on the S-tac's never seen one but we where shooting Nathan's Edge out to 1km with a SII 6-20. Not quite as nice as our SIII 6-24's but every bit as effective & accurate. As the guys have said lower min power the better for walking but lean towards the extra power if it's a LR rig.
