Scoping The Swiss K31 Rifle
Here's A Look At Another Application Of The 2-7x Hi-Lux Optics LER Scout Rifle Scope To Tap The Long Range Capability Of An Older Style Rifle - The Swiss K31.
"Minimum eye relief of the Hi-Lux scope is 8.7″ at 7X and is perfect for the K31. Most scout scopes are low power optics good for a quick shot at shorter ranges but not so good for target shooting at distance. With a variable power scope like the Hi-Lux I have the best of both worlds. I can turn it down to 2X and hammer targets off-hand at 50 yards or I can sit at the bench at 100 yards and test my handloads at 7X. The .308 BDC reticle is designed to be zeroed at 200 yards—center of crosshair—with hold-over marks for 300, 400 and 500 yards. The 7.5 x 55 K31 actually fires a .308-caliber bullet, although the brass casing differs from our own .308 Win and ballistics of the two cartridges are similar enough that I believe the reticle will work in this application."
