Many shooters say that the mere Winchester Magnum already spells disaster on your budget and finding the best scope for 300 Win Mag would right away refer to the higher-priced bracket of $500 dollars or more.
It could well be true considering that 300 Winchester Magnum sniper rifles are known for their fire power and excellent performance when hunting big game. You wouldn’t want to waste these qualities on mediocre scopes.
For hunting long-range, an oversized tube instead of the standard 1-inch would be preferable and a 50mm front lens would provide first-rate light-gathering ability and crystal clear images especially in low-light situations.
This is crucial when you’re out hunting at dawn or dusk when most game animals are on the go in large numbers. You would also want wide fields of view for following swiftly-moving games.
Also, you’ll need a zoom lens that starts at 4 or 4.5x at the most, where it’s most effective, especially at 100 yards. Find a range of up to 12x-16x magnification to pull you through 400-600 yards.
These and other basic requirements for your Win Magnum are vital to your safety and wellbeing when hunting in the wilds.
