>Freedom Arms and Scope Choices

Steven K. Ledin,

>I blew up a fairly expensive brand name scope on a six inch unported .454 at the worst possible time. On an animal in Africa. Missed the critter, and afterwards saw that the reticle had turned in the scope. My loads were pretty ridiculous, and the scope held up for a couple hundred rounds. Needless to say I have little faith in the brand in that application. The most reliable handgun scopes so far have been the Leupolds and the Bushnell Elites. Regarding the Elites, don’t judge a book by its cover. A lot of people think that Bushnell makes cheap scopes, and they’re not wrong. But they also make medium level scopes and some scopes that are just plain excellent. The Japanese-made Elites fall into the later category. Even Freedom Arms, the makers of the finest revolvers since the beginning of time recommends them. Big gun shooters take heed.
