    Default Lynx LX3 2.5-15x50 first scope

    Evening, so today I bought my very first scope for a Howa 1500 .308win.

    So I bought the Lynx LX3 2.5-15x50 SA Hunter scope and I would like to hear some thoughts on this scope?

    Nothing wrong with the scope. Lense quality is decent and the local back-up is good.

    What only you can find out, is weither it will suit your purpose.

    I have one on my 6.5 Creed.
    Shooting gongs and playing around to 500m is a breeze.
    Have shot a few warthog and other creatures but would be better off with a 3-9 for hunting.

    But yes,great scope,very happy.

    Thanks a mil. Awesome to hear that you can play at around 500m. I will only use it for hunting once or twice a year otherwise I will also be playing around shooting gongs etc.

    The LX3 range is brilliant. Lenses are crystal. And internals super strong.
    You cant go wrong with the LX3 range and Lynx support on them is brilliant.

    I currently have a 5-30x56 on my 308. At 500m its brilliant.
    And I can turn dials anyway I want and then back. And it will be back where I started. (Box test some call it)

    Just bought a Sako 222. And its getting the Tactical 2.5 - 15 LX3 on.
    Which Im ordering today. Yesterday I ordered the Ase Utra for the 222.

    I stuck one on my 300wm. I love it. The backup service from Lynx is awesome.

    I had some questions i e-mail to Lynx and the boss guy (can't remember his name, sorry) phoned me and we had a chat for about 30 minutes. Where does that happen in the world?

    really nice scope ! it will also handle the recoil of the larger calibre. I have the 5-20x50 on my 338.... it was a real hard choice between the two. Currently I considering getting one and stick the x20 on my 270
