Remington Sendero, which Leupold

I have a new Remington Sendero 300 Win Mag that I plan to hunt elk with. I would like to shoot anywhere from 100-1000 yards. Which Leupold scope would be the best option for me? I would like to spend $1000 or less. Please send me your suggestions. Thanks!

I think the V6 2-12x with CDS meets those parameters.

Leupold Mark 4 LR/T 6.5-20x50 M1 with a TMR reticle would suit that rifle extremely well. You can usually find them used in your specified price range.

Similar to this one in the classifieds. Leupold MK4 6.5-20x50 LR/T

Re: Remington Sendero, which Leupold

I had this very same situation a year ago on my 7RM Sendero. I went with a VX-3 6.5-20x50 with the side focus, target turrets, and target dot.

Great scope. Descent glass, plenty of MOA adjustment. The target dot is nice. In low light, on higher powers, it can get hard to see. If I keep it below 12x I can see it in about any light. Works well for me. I really like it. I would educate the thought of a different reticle possibly, but that fine dot for shooting out long is great. I can't seem to get myself to switch the reticle. You can find some pretty good ones in the classifieds for anywhere from 650-800.

The best leupold you can buy is the one that says "ZEISS" on the side of it!

I recommend the Zeiss 6.5-20x50 wtih target turrets and MilDot reticle.

Or you could buy the Vortex Viper HS Long Range 6-24x50 with the XLR reticle.

Either would make an excellent addition to your already excellent rifle purchase.

On that budget check the classifieds here, over on Sniper's Hide and on Ebay. Don't be afraid of a used Leupold, if there's a problem the lifetime warranty from Leupold is worth it's weight in gold.

I'd say look at the VXIII and Mark 4's preferably with 50mm Obj's. The 4.5-14x will get you there pretty well, but the 3.5-10 is really a bit weak at beyond 750. You can get buy with the latter if you have a good spotting scope to really score racks etc and pick out the one you want to go after however.

If you catch them right you can probably find a 6-20x50 or 8.5-25x50 in your price range especially if you are willing to be patient. Post Christmas sales are usually great for optics.
