Re: Best $500 Long Range Scope
I make a point of letting my buddies look through my Nikons. They are the most clear and bright for my money. They are always very impressed.
The good wife got me a Burris peep-cross, I like it a lot, but not as bright as the Nikons.
I grew up with a Leopold, I think they are great optics. Seems that when I go to by one, the Nikons are on sale, at half what a comparable Leopold would be.
Most of the time you get what you pay for, with Nikon you get a bit more.
I haven't tried Nightforce, would like to see/use more brands, but I know what I'm getting with Nikon.
There are only two seasons: Hunting season, and Getting Ready for Hunting season. -DAD
