iRay Rico MK1 RH35 Will Be the Next Review!
Bundled up for chilly night hunts with the @iray_usa Rico MK1 RH35 from @outdoorlegacygear and Ruger 16 inch 6,5 Creedmoor with MDT Chasis.You Northern folks will probably laugh because I was layered up like the little brother on the way to school in the Christmas Story movie, but it was actually in the 40's that night... hahaha! I was wearing overalls, a sweatshirt, 2 undershirts, and long pants lol. I see pictures of y'all up in ND, SD, WY, ID, and WI wearing light sweatshirts in 20 degree weather. I'm dead!This time of year, many of the questions that I get are about operating temperatures for Thermal optics... especially the effect on battery life. If your scope uses CR123 batteries, I would stronger suggest using an external battery pack. This will be the most cost effective way to operative your scope in cold weather. The great thing about battery packs is that you can find them anywhere and they are pretty inexpensive. Your optic should come with the cord that you need to connect your scope to the battery pack. If your scope runs on a proprietary battery and you hunt in very cold climates then you have a couple options. Either purchase an additional battery as backup from your dealer and/or use an external battery pack tethered to your scope.If you are interested in purchasing the right night optic for your hunting application give me or Jason a call. If Angela or Michaeal answer your call.... just ask for Hans!
