Hawke sidewinder 6-24x56

Post by ironmatt » 15 Jul 2017, 17:47

Hi all,

I'm new here so be gentle. Got little to no experience with nv but after having a crack at wild boar with my mates setup I'm hooked! I have just ordered the new ward d 800L to use with my swarovski z6i on top of my .270 for boar but fancy using it on my .22-250, .22 hornet and .22lr as well for vermin control. I've been offered a Hawke sidewinder 6-24x56 for a good price. Would that be a good choice to throw on my hornet or .22-250? Or should I go for something with lower mag?

Cheers

Matt

Never done any boar shooting but my instinct is fixed 6 or 8 mag is going to be better suited unless you are laying up for them.

It'd be point and shoot almost regardless of range, a lot lighter and more shoulder slingable too.

I'll be keeping the z6i on my .270 for boar mate. im thinking of this sidewinder for my .22-250 for foxes and rabbits. you think itd be sufficient or would it be worth going for something in the 4-16 mag range?

I'd be checking if the wardy works well wi the Z6i first. I have never used a Wardy either. :angel:

Won't be brilliant bud but all the pigs will be sub 100yds so should be sufficient for that.
