Which scope

Which scope would you choose in the $600-800 range?

    Re: Which scope

    What kind of hunting are you into? What magnification are you wanting?

    I think Zeiss conquest is a great scope for the money. Nikon Monarch is good for the money too.

    I bought a NIB 2nd hand (used) Mark 4, but it was more than 800, by about 50%.

    There's alot of good scopes out there under 800 if you don't need 20-25X and other things that go into the higher dollar stuff.

    I have bought a couple used Leupolds vx3s off of the optics classifieds here from $ 600 to 750 shipped . The factory warranty is still good on them and you can send them in to the custom shop and change reticle and nobs if you want and still have less than a new scope !

    Thanks for the replies. The scope is going to be used on a Savage 308 for 600yds and under hunting and 1000+yds target shooting. I was looking at some of the Bushnell Tactical Elites and the Vortex Vipers but wanted to see how many more lesser know options were out there.

    I be thinking either option you were looking at would probably suit you well.

    for a 308 at 1000 yds, you'll benefit by making sure you have enough elevation adjustment in the scope though, or get a tapered base.

    I have a bushnell 4200 elite on my .243, I really like it and so far it has adjusted great and always returns to zero. This scope doesn't have too much elevation adjustment to work with though. I put a 20moa base on my gun and that really helped. I haven't had a chance to shoot farther than 600 yet but I think I should be able to get out to 1000 if I really want to.
