Re: best long range scope for under 1000

I had the same question about a week ago. I have a Browning A-Bolt Stalker 300 WSM. I did a lot of research and kept coming back to the Zeiss Conquest 4.5-14X44 RZ-800 reticle. I had to order it, so its coming in. I'm waiting, but not patiently.

I got a Vortex Viper 6-24x50mm PST FFP MOA scope with a Vortex Custom Turret and love it($899 + 115 for turret).

Here it is:

Re: best long range scope for under 1000

I have two Bushnell 6500 tactical scopes with mil dot reticle in 2.5-16x44 mounted on 20 MOA rails. I really like them on a big game rifle. They give you the ability to take a close shot in thick scrub as well as long range.

One is on a .338WM and the other is on a .338RUM.

Both are great scopes and I have shot past 1000 yards with both. Elevation turret adjustment is repeatable but not as advertised. ie 1/4 MOA clicks are actually about 0.27 clicks on both scopes, so this needs to be taken into account when dialing up for long distance. Out to 600 yards it will not be too much of an issue.

Apart from this I have had no other issues with these scopes.

Trijicon, Zeiss, Leupold!!! All three manufacturers make very repeatable crystal clear class for $1000.00 or less. All with very good track records around these parts. Bill Maylor..
