Re: Long range Hunting Scopes

Bushnell Elite 6500 Rifle Scope 30mm Tube 2.5-16x 50mm Side Focus Fine Multi-X Reticle Matte

$780 @ midway, probably find it little cheaper somewhere else, played with one in my local shop the turrets are REALLY easy to set a zero on, and will make a really nice multi gun scope for that reason. probably my next purchase if i stay on a crappy budget, really want to get a nightforce lol
the reticle is second focal plane. but that's ok; its a duplex, you cant range with it any way, and if you have a range finder you can just dial corrections quickly! really really clear too!

Re: Long range Hunting Scopes

I had been watching this scope. It appears to be right up your alley. I found a deal on another IOR 6-24x50 locally and bought it instead.

It looks like it's likely going to sell well within your price range.

Re: Long range Hunting Scopes

a couple ways you can go, for big game you can do a scope with holdover points or use a CDS or turret style scope. I use my scopes for coyote hunting so I personally prefer adjusting a turret with a zero stop. because I am trying to hit a small target. for me right now that is a CDS 3.5-10x40 on my 270 win, and a modified mark 4, 4.5-14x 40 TMR reticle and zero stop. the mark 4 would be alot better scope if I had more FOV on the low end, thats its main shortcoming.

or you can get a ballistic reticle scope. I helped a buddy get setup with his 308 for an elk hunt, he had a vortex diamond back with their BDC reticle, while its not a scope I would pick or recommend, before the day was out he was drilling my 12" steel gong at 450 yards. the hold over points IMO work fine for a large target like big game out to at least 500 yards. and honestly thats probably the furthest an unskilled shooter should be shooting at anything at.

for a simple setup I am a big fan of the bushnell elites. perhaps one of their scopes with BDC reticle might suit your needs.
