I will second the recommendation on the Weaver tactical. Saw the reviews and bought one and was so impressed immediately picked up a second.

Great thread. I think I'd try the Vortex for the $750 tops.

I'm sure the Vortex is great, but I really want a FFP reticle. I'm torn between the SS 3-9x42 and the Weaver Tactical. Both have great reviews.

Hows the tracking on the Weaver?

On the scope my buddy has it's awesome! It has comparable tracking and return to zero to my high-end Leupolds and Sightron.

And all my other Weavers (I personally don't have a tactical one) track and return to zero with excellent and repeatable results.
