Shotgun Scopes for Rifles?
There is a new-in-box Leupold scope for sale near me, an Extremeslam 3-9x40 (or somesuch). Leupold lists it as a "shotgun or muzzleloader" scope. Does that mean it would be unsuitable for a rifle? Why, eye relief or shock/recoil absorbing ability? If suited for a shotgun, wouldn't it also work on (e.g.) a .22-250 or .223 rifle (low recoil) or maybe up to a .243 Win?
Probable eye relief is greater, maybe built a bit more stout inside. Sometimes they have 1/2" at 100yds click adjustments which to me means slightly less precise???
Seems if it was accurate to minute-of-turkey it would be good enough for minute-of-deer precision.
oh ya, I have a Leupold scope with 1/2" per click adjustment, great accurate scope. I have it on my TC Triumph 50cal!
If I remember correctly the largest difference with the exception of a specialized reticle in some is that they are set with a parallax correction of either 75 or 100 yards. This compares to a rifle scope with a normal parallax correction of 150 yards or meters. The adjustment of the reticle is often 1/2 inch per click as was already listed in pervious post.
So for close woods of Alaska, where shots range from 60-80 yards, the scope would serve just fine, no? Not thinking of it for the sheep mountains, just the fjords and islands.
good buy, it should serve you well for what is intended.
? did you buy it:vs_worry:
Not yet. Was iffy about the deal so I ordered a new Vortex 3-9x40 scope for the meantime. I know the Vortex will stand up to the recoil on the Marlin 375 Winchester levergun that is it's intended resting place.
