Scope selection is an extremely import aspect of any rifle build. In this episode of our “Building A Backcountry Rifle” series we speak with Mark Boardman of Vortex Optics to learn what hunters should consider when selecting an optic to top their big game hunting rifle. We discuss the technical details of scopes, such as zoom ranges, objective sizes, exit pupil, and more — but in the end our purpose with this show is to explain those specifications so that we can make a more informed decision about what really matters: how a scope performs in the field.
Steve and I both chose the Vortex Razor LH to top our Weatherby rifles for this build. The Razor LH offers rock-solid durability and essential functionality in an incredibly lightweight package. And like all Vortex optics, the Razor LH is backed by Vortex’s Unlimited Lifetime Warranty.
Thank you to Weatherby for their continued support in bringing this Building A Backcountry Rifle series to us. Learn more about our rifle of choice, the Weatherby Vanguard S2 Backcountry or view the entire lineup of Weatherby Vanguard rifles.
