Quote from: Luis Leon on January 05, 2019, 10:58:01 AM and consider attaching a light with a red filter to your rig.I hope I'm not starting out too O.T. right away; but since you mentioned this, how do the pigeons, rats, or other animals react when you shine various lights on them?I don't have any experience in this kind of hunting, but I'm sure you'll want a very large exit pupil. My first (cheap) scope's exit pupil was considerably smaller than my own pupil is when there's little light, making the scope all the dimmer. I'd say large objective lens, hold the magnification down (like 4x?), large exit pupil, and illuminated reticle.
I thought I would update this thread. I have tried several scopes, Bushnell, Nikon, Mueller, Discovery and finally settled on a SWFA fixed 6 power. It has great glass, super bright and a fast reticle that meets my needs. I am totally happy with this one and see no need to try anything else. Next Iíll be looking for a scope for EBR, 100 yard target shooting.
Well much has transpired since this thread was started. I moved from a fixed 6X, to a 10X and finally ended up with a fixed 12X SWFA on my hunting rifle. Tried many on my 100 yard rifle and it wears either a fixed 36X Sightron or 40X Mueller. Simple thin cross hairs with a micro target dot in the center. The busy Christmas tree and hash mark reticles were too busy and made it difficult to see holes at 100.
