Re: new to long range shooting.

if you look at the 3200 5-15x40 MD its pretty good for a round $330. I know a couple ppl that use it for LR shooting out to 1k yards. It has about 70 or so moa adjustment!

Re: new to long range shooting.

You pretty much get what you pay for. If you would be willing to spend more money in the future, Than maybe you should consider just trying the scope you have for a season and eventually upgrading to the $4-500 range? Just a thought. I have made many mistakes in the past purchasing equipment that I thought I'd be happy with only to regret it later.

Make sure you physically look through any scope (preferrably from a friend and in various conditions) prior to purchasing a similar product.

Good luck, Mark.
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".

Re: new to long range shooting.

welcome to the forum joe. check out this article that was written a while back by one of our late members here, Ian McMurtry. He has some good advise about scopes.

- Low Priced Long Range Scopes

Dont discount the Super Snipers if you can live with a fixed power scope. I own a couple of them and i am very pleased with them. AJ

Joe the 5-15 3200 has 5 inches of eye relief and is a great value. I am kicking myself for passing on one for $199. I should have bought it and even though my new rifle will not be ready until May. Take your time there are some deals on ebay on occasion.
