Lones Wigger on Silhouette scopes

Post by acorneau » Wed Jan 10, 2018 6:15 pm

An excerpt from Lones Wigger's thoughts on Silhouette scopes from a 1984 or 1985 clinic. Not long but a good read.

Great article.

HI ,
Thank you for posting LONES on silhouette ...
VERY appropriate for many reasons ...
IF everyone read the whole thing , LONES refered to his indoor gallery shooting days BECAUSE of that time limit !

1/2 minute dot plus slightly LESS magnification in wind THAN in calm ...

HE used 14X in heavy wind in HIGH power ...

Take IT for whatever its worth ...

Several years ago, my favorite budget scope was the Weaver KT15 - Lones might approve.
