Sig Sauer Tango4 4-16x 44mm - Rifleman's Optics
Rifle|November - December 2019
SIG Sauer’s new line of TANGO4 scopes designed for AR-type rifles are made for mid- to longrange shooting and hunting, according to SIG. TANGO4 scopes include 1-4x 24mm, 3-12x 42mm and 4-16x 44mm options.
John Haviland

The scopes include features such as a 4:1 magnification zoom ratio, LockDown Zero System turrets and the choice of several motion-activated, illuminated reticles in the first focal plane.

I chose big and mounted a TANGO4 4-16x 44mm on a Colt LE-901 .308 Winchester. The Colt is a battle-ax of a rifle, emitting a braying muzzle blast from its 16inch barrel as its bolt slams back and forth like a dungeon door while emptying a 20-round magazine. But once the scope was sighted in, it never wandered an inch from zero after shooting about 150 cartridges.

Two reticles are available for TANGO4 1-4x and 3-12x scopes. One is a Horseshoe Dot with bars spaced on the lower vertical wire to match trajectories of the 5.56 and 7.62 NATO cartridges or .300 Blackout. A second reticle contains hash marks on the vertical and horizontal wires spaced in milliradian (MILS) or minute of angle (MOA) units.

6MM ARC

After using a 6.5 Grendel to cull a goodly number of Texas feral hogs, I’ve developed a great deal of respect for the cartridge. This has mostly involved nighttime forays shooting with thermal imaging optics. The 2.26-inch confines inherent to AR-15 magazines, and the Grendel’s limited case capacity, make 123- to 130-grain bullets the practical upper limit for such activities. These projectiles chug along at around 2,350/2,450 feet per second (fps), but deliver well out of proportion to its diminutive size.

.240 WEATHERBY MAGNUM

The .240 Weatherby Magnum gets little respect. Knowledgeable varmint hunters will spend a lot of dough to build up a custom 6mm-284 or one of the variations of the 6mm-06 wildcat rounds to get the ballistic features already available in a .240 Weatherby Magnum factory rifle: flat trajectory, good performance in wind and the ability to anchor larger game more reliably if called upon to do so.

6MM CREEDMOOR

The 6mm Creedmoor was designed for long-range target shooting with long and skinny, heavy-for-caliber bullets that slip through the air with the greatest of ease. Wind affects these bullets little; they just fly right through it, almost unaffected.
