Best scope?

Well i have been starting to look into putting together a long range rifle. The thing I am trying to do is figure out a budget as I will get each component as I can and then have it all put together. With this I am tyring to figure out the scope to get. I am looking at USO and nightforce. Maybe Swaro and Zeiss as well. Just wonder what your opinions are of each and which you would buy and why. I am looking at max distances from 750-1000 meters.

Thanks you in advance for your time on this.

nightforce 3.5-15 or 5.5-22. If you need huge amounts of MOA look into USO. European makers way overpriced due to high european labor cost.

Re: Best scope?

There is no such thing as a "BEST" scope.The one that is best for me might not look good to you.Look through ever scope you can get your hands on and make your pick that way.If you gave me a Night Force,I would take it.But I would trade it in on 3 nikons [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
