Gear & Equipment / Re: TRACT OPTICS

   Thanks Yari.  When I get it mounted it will be easier to evaluate. it is very bright. I will mount it this weekend and sight it in. Did you use the tall turrets or use the short turrets?

good question. i don't think there were choices when i got mine. i would guess mine is tall. whatever came w/ the scope at the time.

are there choices now?

i didn't get custom turrets either. i just tape the 'clicks and yardage on my stock(black fiberguard stock) get a yardage reading, look at my stock, make the clicks and bang. it's very easy and i don't see a lot of reason for a custom turret, especially if you have multiple loads

i think you will like the light gathering. i will put it against $3000 scope all day. enjoy

  I owned a Ruger #1b in 22-250 years ago. The rifle shot 1 inch groups but did not feel or fit me like my other rifles. The velocity was very slow for some reason. 50 grain bullets at 3500 fps with a beyond max charge of h380 so it went bye bye. I still have a couple single shot pistols that I shoot every so often and have shot a couple deer with the 7mm BR.

  I recieved my Tract Toric 3-15 with the T-plex. I was hoping to say WOW when I looked through but that didn't happen. It is very bright and clear and when I get it mounted it will be easier to evaluate. I'm going to mount it on my 22-243 AI varmint rifle. its a 500 yards and under rifle so I wont need to spend $100 to have a custom turret made. I spend more time in a year with that rifle then any other in low light conditions and hunting in the dark. By next spring I will have spent many many hours with the scope in my hand. I normally don't want a scope with the adjustable objective for under 500 yard hunting but the 3-15 only comes with an AO. This just my opinion and time will tell. So far so good.

I love wood also, nothing like a great wood pattern on a rifle....man it looks great, but the weather will determine what and when I take wood to the stand..I have an old Winchester 70A that has the old wooden stock on it and have finished it off one time before have shot plenty of deer with that rifle, but when I would first get it, it went to the woods with me regardless of the weather...it would be a good down pour and it would be at my side and tried to protect it against the elements....

Now days I will take 2 of the 4 rifles down with me that have Fiberglass or Carbon Fiber stocks on them just in case.....

Not - I own 6 Tract Optics, and somewhere in the neighborhood of 35 to 40 Leupolds, you cannot go wrong with a Leupold, but the newer Tract Optics are just as nice and have spoken with Jon and Jon and they said their warranty is second to none....so either one would be a nice addition to your collection....

The Tract is a direct to consumers and to purchase a Leupold would cost you about twice as much....today (9-23-2021) was cleaning my Christensen Arms short 16.5" 10 BA in 308 and have a Tract mounted on it...very nice and rugged...it is one of my favorite 308's out of a ground blind.....this 308 with the Tract is very accurate at 100 yards....One the other hand Leupold it would be at this time of the year about 12 weeks before you hear anything.......

Love wood, but yeah I now own several which aren't as pretty but are nearly indestructible.  As I look at those which I consider my favorites though, they all have wood furniture - some still beautiful, some pretty rough.

i still have a few wood stocks. my dad has a weathery .300 that is/was beautiful. after several elk hunts, it got scratched up.

for me, i only buy synthetic now. no glare/reflection and i don't worry about scratching it. my guns are utilities and not for the mantle. that said, i sure like looking at a wood stock
