    You should be able to find a nice used Leupold MARK 4 LRT 4.5x14x50 for around $750 to $800 on e-bay. I just sold one for $790. I just saw a nice one on e-bay about a week ago for $775.

    I don't like the paying for the name Leupolds. I had a 8.5x25x50MM with Varmint reticle. Including tax that scope cost me a grand. Its optics weren't any better then my 6x24x40MM Baush& Lomb elite 4200. I know there are better scopes out there for same or even a little less if I shop around.I've been thinking of that Maopta what ever? 4x16x44MM 30MM I here they make the Zeiss Conquest lens's.Tech at Rock Creek BBLs says that scope looks as good as a Swavorski pro Hunter. But I had enough of the over priced Leupolds. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]

    Have had good luck with Nikon monarchs 6.5x20x44 with fine reticle or the Nikoplex reticle. For the money, a very good scope. Leupolds have been good too but are more pricey.

    Take a look @ Bushnells new 6-24x50mm tactical scope. We have some and they look pretty impressive. Can't comment on repeatablility as I've only opened the box and looked @ them. They are about $550.
