1000 dollar question! help
I am at the point where I am ready to spend money in a high quality scope. I currently own three zeiss conquest scopes, and I like them all. I particularly like the new HD5 model. It has really nice glass. I have a 243 win and a 270 caliber rifle. I want to get a top of the line scope because my next step is to buy a custom true long range hunting rifle, but before I get there I want a new scope.
I currently have $2500 that I got from a pellet gun that I sold, and I am willing to spend this money on a scope.
Now the dilemma I have is that I have not decided which scope to get. I know for sure is between a nightforce and a schmit and bender.
I have been thinking about getting a 5-22 NXS, which is a around 1750, the ATACR which is around 2300, the big daddy Schmit & Bender 5-25 police model, or the new nightforce beast. The last two models are around 3400.
So the question is, do I really want to spend an extra 1000 to jump into the premium scopes or a nightforce nxs or atacr will suffice?
what would you guys do? As for the extra 1000, I can spend it. Money is really not a big deal, but at the same time, I could use that extra 1000 on the custom rifle I want.
What really makes more sense?
I plan on shooting paper and I am a big hunter. I usually hunt deer size game only.
thank you guys
