Moose Hunting Rifle Scope

by Brian

What brand of scope should i purchase for my moose hunting rifle? How much power should it have?

BTW, I shoot a Winchester Model 70 in 30-06 caliber.


Brian, thanks for your question.

Personally I prefer the Leupold Hunting Rifle Scopes. The company has been around for a long time and the quality of their products are outstanding.

I own a few of their scopes:

Vari X-2 Fixed 4 power
Vari X-2 Variable Power 3 - 9
Vari X-3 Variable Power 3 1/2 - 10
Vari X-3 EFR Variable 6.5 - 20

The 3-9 power scope is the one I have on my moose hunting rifle. I sighted it in about 15 years ago and I've never had to adjust it, even though I have fired several thousand rounds through that rifle.

I hope this answers your moose sausage question.
