Re: Advice on New Scope

MT4xFore,
Thats what I thought. I appreciate it. Im just looking for a scope FFP within my budget that has the style of the BDC or BC reticle.

    There just isn't much selection of FFP scopes with BDC-type reticles in your price range. About the only one I know of is the Meopta Meostar 3-12X56 with the 4B reticle (which is pretty darn nice and would be a killer choice for low light).

    Other than that, Swaro used to offer their 3-12 PH in FFP with the TDS but I think it's discontinued--you'd have to find a used one.

    If you raise your price, there is Premier Hunter/LT, NF F1, S&B....

    Or if you can learn to use a standard Mil or MOA reticle instead, your options expand greatly. From the 3-9SS, to the 3-12 and 6-24 Bushnells, 3-15 and 4-20 Weaver and of course the PST's. Probably the best scope for the money under $1000 right now is the SS 5-20 with the group purchase. If you looked used, you could probably find an IOR 3-18X42 FFP for less than $1400.

    We are very lucky to have that many choices these days. It wasn't long ago the IOR above was the only FFP with matching reticle/turrets available under $2500 (excluding made in China junk). Now we nearly have them coming out of our ears.
