500-1000 LR scopes

Been consideing a bushnell 6500 4.5-30 Doa for around $750 but, am axing the idea.
The clicks are 8% off in my 4200 2-16 and find that ok on a hunting scope but, not a LR appilication...it just complicates things. I do love the glass though.


I need other ideas while keeping costs down in the sub 1000 range...like 500-800 feels ok to spend.

I plan on sending 7mm 180 Bergers out to 1700Y someday just for fun so a wide/solid adjustment range and clear magnification are a big plus.

Thanks

I agree for the money the glass is so much brighter than anything else I have looked at - their CS is second to none, used one last year on my deer rifle, was real good for low light conditions, took the shock even in the extreme cold for hours which many scopes won't.

My heart is set on a Swaro Z5 but i have the Zeiss sitting here NIB - been debating the extra $$ if its worth it.

I have a bad taste from Bushnell from long ago, I wouldnt give them the sweat off my #@@#s they can forget about getting my business.
