Reply To: FX 400 or Daystate Renegade
On my FX 400 177 i use the Bushnell Elite 6500 2.5-16×42 scope. This is a TRULY amazing scope, who’s only flaw is that it doesn’t have more dots. I dope the gun and write the dope on the bell of the scope at 12x. so that I know exact point of impact out to 85 yards. Most of the shooting we do with the Royale’s in .177 is for Starlilngs, Sparrows and Pigeons at Dairy Farms. We hunt ground squirrels as well with them for head shots out to 60 yards.
My friend uses the Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24 with mil dots. it’s extremely sharp but has no side focus like the 6500. Our best pigeon hunting is at dusk as they return to the barns to roost.
The Royale 177’s are incredible guns and deserve great optics.
