It also has a lifetime warranty and customer service is awesome.
Make sure you get a 20 moa base if you want to shoot to 1000yds since it doesn't have the adjustment range of a NF.
They have target turrets with screw on covers.
Thanks!!! Joel has installed a 20moa base, so I'm just trying to figure out the scope! Everyone has been a big help!!

Thanks, Big Mick, I've looked at the Bushnell Elites, also. I like them, but have heard some complaints of tracking issues.

I like to support those who support the site, so who is my best Sightron dealer?

$600.....Clearidge optics. In my eyes well worth the money. I'd put them right in line with Zeiss glass. Not to mention Jon is a sponser here.

What about the Nikon Monarch 6x24? There used to be a lot of talk on here about the Nikon's but I haven't heard much lately. I haven't had any experience with them myself but the ones that I have looked through looked pretty good but I don't know how good they are mechanically. Price is in the $500 range.

Yeh i dont think you will go wrong with any of the scopes mentioned dont know anything about clearidge optics, havent seen them in this country yet. I had the bushnell on my 300 rum it was flawless very clear glass. Sold that rifle complete to a mate now built an edge bought the same scope for it cheers mick.
