So here the ? One more time budget is 2000 less if possible. What is the best hunting scope outhere (brand dont matter) to shoot probably no further than 600 yds and 200-300 average shots! Help please
I'll throw a monkey wrench in here. With that criteria I'd go for the IOR Valdada 4.5-15x50 tactical with the 35mm Tube and the MP8 Reticle.
Next to that I'd go for a Mark 4 Leupold in the same power or step up to the 6-20x50.
Unless you are shooting prairie dogs at that range you really don't need more than 14x and certainly no more than 20x.
I also have the 6-24x50 IOR Valdada on my 300 Rum and it's all the scope I need out to 1,000yds plus even on targets as small as a bobcat.
