Leupold Pig/Hog Scope



Log in to see fewer ads
thinking about buying a Leupold Pig/Hog scope for on my 10/22 M1 Tribute. Anyone here ever put one of these on a 10/22 and if so how do you like it?

I assume that your referring to the pig plex reticle scope. The reticle is pretty thick, so depending on what you plan to use it for would ultimately determine if it will work for you.

Had one come on a used rifle I picked up, seems its presently on my CZ 452 FS in .22wmr which is not likely to be used beyond 100 yards and mostly on larger targets like Ground Hogs. Works fine for that but as said the Cross hairs are a bit thick for fine work, usual Leupold clarity etc.

Will be using it for plinking and just about nothing else. My Son has one on a centerfire rifle and I liked it. Also, like the classic look for on this particular 10/22.

Leuplod makes several classic looking scopes. You may want to check out thier rifleman series scopes. You can find one with a thinner reticle for plinking.

I have the turkey plex version of that scope that I used on a BL-22 for a while. It's now on my Howa Grendel for a woods gun. It's parallax free at 75 yards and the circle is perfect for ranging a whitetail when on 4x. I had looked at the pig plex first, but choose the circle x (turkey plex) instead. One other thing. Don't let that small objective fool you, it'll pull in all the light you need for shooting in any light you've got any busness firing in!

My Son has one on a deer rifle and I was impressed with the clarity, but, was a little concerned with the heavy circle but did like the mil dots. Still undecided.

I have one on a Ruger 77/44, I like the clarity of the optics, great field of view, generous eye relief. With iron sights on the rifle, I was limited to shots out to about 70 yards. With this scope I can hit out to 140 yards and more....

As sometimes happens when I am on the search for a scope I end up with a different scope altogether.
Will be buying a Burris Droptine Rimfire scope. Has great ratings, cost is about 75% of the Leopold. Thanks for all the input.
