The 350 legend is a 9×43 mm ammo also known as 350 LGND. It’s authorized by SAAMI and used for hunting. It’s a fairly new ammunition that took the hunting world by surprise. Since its release, there have been countless hunter switching to this ammunition for their daily hunting.
Finding the best scope for 350 Legend is not an easy task. After all, it’s like asking what’s the best scope for hunting. Your preferred scope and mine will not be the same. After all, it’s all about preference. But objectively speaking, there are quite a few scopes you can choose from.
Don’t worry, I’m here to guide you towards the right scope! Without further ado, let’s get right into it!
Best 350 Legend Scopes – [Editor’s Pick]
1. Vortex Optics Crossfire II 3-9×40 SFP Riflescope
Vortex Crossfire II is one of the best hunting scopes made by modern optics manufacturers. Crossfire series from Vortex is made for hunters of all ages and qualities. Whether you are a newbie or a veteran of the game, you will find comfort in Crossfire II. It’s an upgraded model that is made for all ranges of hunting.
It’s an affordable scope with the second focal plane reticle. The tube size of this optic is 1″. It’s fully coated from the outside and the inside of this scope is purged with nitrogen to make it immune to moisture. Vortex also uses O-ring sealings to prevent water from going inside the scope.
Thanks to Vortex for eliminating holdover concerns, you can use this optic and the reticle at different ranges. Speaking of reticles, you have Dead-Hold BDC, V-Ples, V-Brite illuminated, and straight wall BDC. Depending on your shooting style, you can choose the reticle that fits your needs the most.
As 350 Legend is known for its range, you might want to get the longest-range options while purchasing. After all, it won’t hurt to have some extra magnification. Vortex also used multiple layers of coating on the lens to prevent it from scratching and improve the low-light shooting experience.
- Hunters Rejoice! While a lot of cheap scopes are not that good for hunting, Vortex broke that Stigma like the beast they are!
- F.A.Q: It’s normal to think that you might get some mounting options with the scope. Unfortunately, you are not getting any mounting rings.
- Hold Zero Like A Boss! Even when paired with something like the 350 Legend, it will hold zero like it was a piece of cake!
2. Leupold VX-3 Freedom 3-9×40 Rifle Scope
Leupold is another giant in sporting optics manufacturing. Their scopes are well-praised by hunters and shooters alike. This optic is made out of high-quality aluminum. The same type of aluminum is preferred and used in many other high-end optics.
Inside of this Leupold scope is purged with chemicals to make it immune to moisture. To make sure it is also waterproof, Leupold used O-ring sealing to prevent water from getting inside.
The lenses of this optic are extremely clean and vibrant. It is also fully multi-coated. You will find three different reticles to choose from with this optic. Those are Duplex CDS, Hunt-Plex, and Tri-MOA CDS. They are all rated and preferred by hunters for being user-friendly. Yes, they are also newbie-friendly.
What makes this a great 350 Legend scope is the persistent nature of this scope to hold zero and other adjustments. Oh, another thing, have you heard of the Twilight Light Management System? I know I sound like a preacher, but that’s not it.
It’s a light management system that improves the low-light performance of your scope. Thanks to that, you can easily hunt small to big game targets from dawn to dusk!
- Freedom! Just like the name, Leupold gives you complete freedom to do whatever you wish with this scope. Paired up with the 350 Legend, you are ready to tear through the sky!
- Low Light Maestro! The low-light performance of this scope is insanely good! If you haven’t tried Twilight Light Management System before, you are missing out on a lot.
- USA! Just like all the other scopes from Leupold, this one is also made in the USA! Your warranty and repair service will be prompt thanks to that!
3. Vortex Diamondback 4-16×44 FFP Riflescope
The Diamondback series from Vortex has always been their prized possession. Under this belt, Vortex has released a lot of different products over the years. The reason why I keep coming back to this scope is the price tag. Just like many other Vortex models, Diamondback also comes in different configurations.
You can choose from the 4-16x magnification with a 44mm objective lens. On the other hand, you can get the 6-24x magnification model with a 50mm objective lens. While the reticle on both versions is the same, it’s an FFP EBR-2C reticle. The difference between the two types of reticles is in the readings. One is MOA and the other one is in MRAD.
Vortex used extra low-dispersion glasses in this scope. They are also known as ED glass. ED glass performs insanely well during low-light conditions and gets extremely bright during that time. When you pair the ED glasses with an FFP reticle, Diamondback suddenly becomes a lot more appealing to a ton of you out there. There is no distortion present on any angle of the scope.
Thanks to the full multi-coating that Vortex provides to their lenses. This scope is a killer choice for any kind of game shooting you are planning to do with the 350 Legend.
- Tackles The 350 Legend Like A Champ! This scope is made for long-range shooting. The reticle on this scope is FFP, which means it will magnify alongside the scope. Hunting with Diamondback is bliss!
- Unlimited Power! What I mean to say is unlimited warranty. Vortex offers a limited lifetime warranty with no questions asked policy.
- Where is this scope made? You ask, it’s made in China. Despite being manufactured in China, Vortex assures you the best quality from their in-house factory in the USA. They will also provide a fast warranty.
4. Burris Fullfield II 3-9×40 Hunting Scope
Burris is not a new name among hunters. They are known for their reliable and valuable hunting scopes for the price. They make great scops for both tactical shooters and hunters. Fullfield II is rather focused mostly on hunters. It features multiple magnifications that you can choose from.
Starting from 3-9x40mm, you can opt for 4.5-14x42mm or 6.5-20x50m. If you are interested in maximizing the distance of your 350 Legend, then I would recommend you opt for the highest magnification possible. But if you are a plinker or small game hunter, even the 3-9x magnification variant is extremely good for you!
As for the build quality, it’s made out of high-quality aluminum. Inside of the scope is purged with chemicals to make it immune to moisture. The exterior has hard anodization to prevent scratches and drop damage. The lenses on Fullfield II are made out of high-quality glass.
They are fully multi-coated and extremely bright. The featured reticle is in the second focal plane. Speaking of reticles, it’s one of the simplest reticles you will come across. Holding zero and shooting long-range is child’s play for Ballistic Plex.
- Rings? Got Them! While purchasing the optic, you can choose the type of mount and the height of the rings. This makes it super simple for you to install this on your rifle.
- The Most Decorated Scpe In Burris’s History! The Burris Fullfield II is one of the most recognized and awarded scopes. Living up to the original Fullfield was a big task and Burris did that flawlessly.
- Excellent For Beginners! Whether you are a veteran with years of experience, or you are a teenager placing your foot in this vast world! Regardless of age and experience, people will enjoy hunting with this scope. It’s super simple to install and even simpler to use!
5. Hawke Vantage IR 4-16×50 AO Mil Dot Riflescope
Hawke might seem like a new name to you guys. After all, they are not as big as Vortex, or Leupold. It’s a family-run business. They are passionate about the game and their optics speak volumes of that. Yes, I know it’s made in China. And that’s a “bad” thing to some.
But if you haven’t used well-made Chinese optics, you wouldn’t understand what I’m trying to convey. Hawke has really good quality control and you can see that in their manufacturing.
This optic is made out of high-quality CNC machined aluminum. It features a set of fully multi-coated lenses. While purchasing, you can choose from low to high magnification.
If you want to shoot your 350 Legends at a longer range, then you will need to get the highest 4-16x50mm option that Hawke offers. But if you don’t care much about hunting and want a good learner scope, then you can opt for a lower-magnified variant.
Vantage features a Mil-Dot IR reticle. It’s not the easiest to use, but once you learn it, you probably won’t enjoy a regular crosshair anymore! It’s that addictive! The hunting performance of this scope for the money is quite remarkable. Compared to much higher-priced optics, you can easily hunt small to big games with this one.
- Glass Etched Reticle! To make sure you etch the heart of your target, Hawke included a glass-etched reticle with this optic. That means it won’t move around or wither away as time passes.
- F.A.Q: Unfortunately, this scope doesn’t come with any mounting gears. While I would have appreciated and commended it for packing a better value, it’s asking for too much.
- Good For Learning Bullet Drops: The reticle of this scope is not that different from other Ballistic Plex. This reticle will help a lot of beginners get a better understanding of MIL and read bullet drops better.
Things To Keep in Mind Before Buying
Finding the best scope for 350 Legend is not that simple. You will need to consider a few things before deciding on which one you want to go with.
Let me help you with some pointers to figure out which one would be the right one for your tasks.
Weight distribution is more important than most users give credit to. A badly balanced scope can ruin your entire experience with the scope. That will result in a bitter experience with the rifle and the scope.
That’s why I always recommend optics that have a good weight balance to them. Sure, they can be heavy at times. But with proper balance, they don’t feel heavy on your rifle.
There is a running trend, the bigger the magnification, the bigger the size. It can get to you quickly. Unless you enjoy using huge scopes, then it’s great news for you.
But for me, I would rather choose a smaller optic so I can place it better on the gun. What I mean is, that I enjoy forward-placed optics more than back ones. If the optic is too big, it wouldn’t be possible to move it a bit forward and still enjoy a good amount of eye relief.
Depending on the range you are usually shooting at, the magnification level of your optic will vary highly. If you want a fluid long-range shooting experience, then you will opt for higher magnified optics. But if you enjoy medium to close-range shooting, then a 3-9x magnified optic is more than enough for you.
We often don’t pay enough attention to this point. Spending a lot of money on something we want can be a good thing. But it’s not always the case where we could spend as much money as we want. Sometimes, we need to relax the spending a bit and figure out our priorities.
If you know what your priorities are in scope and how much money you are willing to spend to fill that priority list, you can easily choose the best scope for your gun!
And that concludes today’s quest for finding the best scope for 350 Legend. I don’t know if this quest was legendary for you, but for me, it certainly was a trip! I promised you to find the crown befitting the king, and I believe I did that and more!
Now, it’s your time to decorate the crown! After all, only you know what you want in a scope! I hope I was able to point you in the right direction, at least!
That’s all for now, I hope to see you guys on the next one. Till then, take care and have fun!
