If you can hold out for a month, Scott at Liberty optics told me that Vortex said is when the viper PST wil be back. This is the scope I wanted but got too good of a deal on a Leupold. Will still get one once I get back to work this spring. Just wish lupy had a better selection on the reticles. Oh, the price of the PST from Scott is under 750. Look them up, you may decide it is worth waiting for. Jeff

zeiss conquest with z-1000 reticle should work well for you, and be under $1000.00 for the 6.5x20x50 with target turrets.

A Leupold vx-3 in 6.5-20x50 long range target is pretty hard to beat especially when you send it into Leupold for the mark 4 m1 turrets...that's about $130.00 plus the price to ship it there. If you shop around you might be able to get it under $1000.00 and you will basically have a mark 4.

Sightron has a 6-24x that's a great scope for under 1k. the PST's will probably be a great scope but it's hard to recommend one when they havn't been out there yet to see if they live up to the hype!
