One of the most recognized names in military sniping during the Vietnam conflict was Marine Corps marksman Carlos Hathcock. During his two tours, he was credited with 93 confirmed kills. The rifle he relied on for very precise long range shot placement was a Model 70 Winchester, of .30-06 caliber, topped with an 8x USMC Sniper scope.
The Wm. Malcolm 8X USMC scope is outfitted with a fine crosswire reticle. The crosswire reticle is fastened to the reticle lock ring.
Great service on getting scope here. Will give full review once I mount it and use it. Primer shortage in ms also .
I havent got behind the rifle it’s on yet but the build quality is top notch. The scope caps have a VERY fine thread so make sure to keep them as level as possible when screwing back in.
only had it out on one of my Winchester 1885 low walls, but it come right in on zero at 50 yards. I am looking forward to a fun summer with it.
I also have 6x on another Winchester. The 8X makes a very big difference with aging eyes. I am happy I decide to go for it........
