Night Vision Alternatives

Postby vvllbs » 23 Jul 2017 21

Can't afford night vision, looking to upgrade beyond my "Kill Light" green light for hogs that mounts either on top of your scope or under your barrel. This will mainly be used for my 70 year old father to take care of hogs tearing up his ranch. I'm building him a 300 BO AR15, he wants optics at this point but doesn't like the KillLight.

I've been thinking about these but waiting to try one first. Price is tolerable.

Wow, really, effective range of the 300 Blackout is only 38 yards by your formula?

AKs generally shoot 7.62X39 or 7n6 (5.45X39).

I think RD was referring to the member "AK47user" telling him the effective range of the thermal sight he linked is 39 yards.
