    Optic suggestions for Ruger No.1 375 H&H

    Have the rifle, tired of the irons. Don't take many long shots with her.

    I'd look at a 2-7 scope. Leupold VX-2 or Zeiss Terra to bring it in under $500.

    Saw a deal on a Bushnell 2-6x32, long eye relief so I don't get scoped into blindness. Am considering a fixed 4x.

    32mm isn't quite enough objective in my opinion. I'd step up to 40 if you can. A good fixed 4x would also be a good scope.

    Just because my wife asked and I don't know the answer - what about a reflexive sight?

    I can see recoil being an issue in case it breaks, and I need a good hold on it to fire anyway, but is she on to something?

    I appreciate the replies, JustBen.

    Leupold FX-II Ultralight 2.5x20 with the heavy duplex. Not because it is an Ultralight but because of the low power.
    I'm assuming you aren't trying to turn it into a target rifle, just a quick handling thumper with an easy acquisition sight.

    I bought it because it's pretty, I take it to the range and if I can ever win a grizzly or bison LEH (BC hunting lottery) I intend to use it. Lately though, I'm not happy with the stock Ruger sights, and the groups I get. Maybe I should just see an optometrist.

    Maybe a reflex sight is what you need! Stick to quality brands and they will handle the recoil, no problem. They can be a bit pricey. The Vortex Sparc says it's tested for 1000 rounds with the 375, so it'd be good to go, but you're limiting your zoom factor. The screw in 2x multiplier works, but it seriously cuts back your eye relief.

    Leupy fixed 4x, an old timer I hunt with uses one, almost got me convinced to do the same as he misses nothing. Lot less to go wrong with a fixed power

    I have a pair of #1's in .45/70
    One of them has a Leupold 2-7 x 32, the other has a Leupold 1-5 x 20. The 1-5 x 20 looks much better on the rifle in my opinion
