So…I bought a used Ruger African in 375 to pair with the 416 Alaskan.
The 416 is great with the factory ‘express’ sight arrangement. I nail stuff with it out to 100, but its hard not to. You wing something, it goes down anyway.
Id like to have some precision on stuff between 150 and a little past 200m. As in being able to get a crosshair quickly on the boiler room. I don’t need to shoot the heart, just the basketball sized area around it, and pretty quickly too.
Lots of eye relief, because I have a big head and long arms and so Im a post code away from the eyepiece. Im an annoying fit indeed.
Ideally a 2.5 to 3.0 fixed with a heavy duplex, but here’s the thing: All the stuff I like killing is BLACK (omg reddit, Im literally shaking rn) so an illuminated crosshair would really really be ideal, but no one in marketing makes a fixed zoom with an illuminated reticle eh? Bit stumped on this one.
Trying to keep it under $900
