Also any advice will much appreciated on practicing and what not. I'm still learning about MOAs and ballistic calculators and all that stuff but have a basic idea. Any advice will help. Thanks and happy shooting.
A used Leupold VX-III or Mark 4 in the 6-20x50mm or 4.5-14x50 wold be the best you can get for the money. They can usually be had in the 700-800.00 range and Leupold's lifetime warranty applies no matter how often the scope changes hands.
Inside of 700yds the VXIII 3.5-10x50 would be my choice (again used) and they can be had for under 600.00.
Other than them the Zeiss Conquests would be my next choice again, in the same power and objective ranges.
