As the post implies, I'm looking to use my 1095 for whitetail deer hunting out to around 100 yards max in a forested environment. Range shooting will also be up to around a hundred yards max, or maybe a little further.

Just wondering what everyone's opinions are as to the best type of optics and magnification level for these applications? Thanks for your time.

Any LPVO will get the job done, really. Or take your pick of the Walmart sub- $100 specials. Depending on your eye sight, anything between 3x and 6x will get the job done. I've got Leupolds, Tascos, Center Points, Bushnells, a Nikko Sterling, and a Redfield. Redfield is Leupold's budget line of scopes and are made in Oregon.

Redd-Dot/ Reflex of your choice is quikker, and is good past 100 yards...

Thanks for the info. Thinking I may look into a Redfield in addition to a red dot (different optics for different occasions). I'm a big fan of value for the money (hence getting a HP).

Ended up ordering a red dot, the Primary Arms advanced micro dot. Will try that and probably a 3-6x scope and see how they compare. I expect both will be useful for different applications.

I bought a number of cheap red dots and they were all fuzzy and difficult to really shoot precisely. For several years I just accepted that cheap meant junk and if I wanted a crisp dot, I'd have to spend more money. Boy was I wrong, it was my astigmatism. I didn't even know I had astigmatism. A trip to the eye doctor and all of a sudden my cheap optics turned into precision optics. There is nothing I know of that will be as impacted by astigmatism as a red dot optic.

Yep! I was shooting my Extar9 TRS25 red dot. It wasn't a full dot with the right eye. Full crisp dot with left!

The prism sights IIRC circumvent that malady.

Got another noob question re: red dots - is a riser needed/preferred for HP carbines? Say, for the Primary Arms advanced micro dot?
