led range

Post by kingsy18 » 23 Mar 2017, 20:46

How much range would i benefit if i used a t67 over the t50 using a red led ,knowing the t67 is a heavy old lump would it be worth it.

Depends if your using a airgun, rimfire or centre fire. Either of the first two then would not be worth the added weight of a t67. Centre fire out to 250 yds then yes. T67

Kingsy are you using a basic ebay type red led in your t50?

Just took a look at their website and it does look like the basic led pill they use, if you do have some soldering skills you could triple the brightness from a simple new led, driver and unprotected batteries.

Dave its as simple as using Noctigon copper bases, finding the best binn of red, red/orange led, 1.4 driver and away you go.Best part is rooting out the highest binns and then seeing the prices! Also dont forget why put a decent pill behind a crap lens? find the best lens as well. ......££££££££££££££ start adding up ,but quality costs.
