Re: Suitable scope for 257 Roberts or 25-06

Hi Richard, there are two Nikon threads on this forum which will help you. One is titled Nikon Buckmaster impressions, the other is titled 'scope for a .260'.

Please read the threads and have a think about things. I do highly recommend the Sightron brand but in saying that, factors such as errors in Nikon scope turret calibration will not be a huge issue on a .25-06 if it is only used to say 500 yards.

If you are able to afford a high end optic and are looking for something around 10 power, I do highly recommend the Sightron SIII 3.5-10 model. It has a 30mm tube and fantastic turrets. But, the 3.5-10 is a premium priced scope so it depends on what you can afford. This is a very good scope for mid range cartridges and works exceptionally well on the .308's where intended usage is to ranges of around 650 yards.
