Best scope out from 100-1900yds. $1500-1800

I have a custom built 7mm STW. I originally had a lower powered Zeiss conquest 3-9x50mm. It just wasnt enough for me. Now i am in the market for a new scope. I like Leupold, Nightforce, U.S. Optics (if i can get a deal on one), and S&B. Which of these would yall suggest and what model? I do not want people saying dont waste your money on that get a vortex or sightron. I want input on these scopes.

Any of them. See if you can find a Premier too. NF and Vortex Razor would be my picks. Maybe think about the G7 version of the NF.

There is a NF scope for sale on the optics forum. 5.5-20x50 npr1 with high speed turrets and zero stop. Prett darn good deal for a awesome scope. Get with shortmag3. It's $1675 and that is around a $1900 to 2K scope.

With that budget, definitely Premier or US Optics. Either one will be very rugged and dependable.

I would consider the Nightforce G7 5.5x22. Broad power range, nice Reticle, rugged, and reliable. I just got one and really like it. Also own and like the Huskemaw 5x 20.
