For those of you looking for new glass to compliment a new gun, or folks who need an upgrade, I want to tell you about one of my all time favorites. For big game hunting
purposes one of the best I have ever used is the Swarovski AV 3-10×42 with a TDS reticle.
The AV means “American”, and uses a one inch tube. The whole package weighs just under 13 ounces, and is so clear and bright it’s shocking. If you’re used to non-European optics, you need to see what some of these folks can do. This is Austrian quality at it’s best. The TDS reticle
is a hold-over type reticle that is unobtrusive and useful. To find the distances the stadia lines are set for there is a chart, or you may call Swarovski
for specifics. Of course, like any BDC lines
, you have to actually shoot the gun with your given loads to confirm and adjust yardage. This rifle scope leaves nothing to be desired, and is a world-class offering from a world-class company.
