Best Scope

What is the best scope for under $1000? Is Huskemaw a good scope?

As for clarity and adjustment I found the burris fulfield II 4.5x14 The best bang for your buck. I have looked though some (not all) scopes ranging from $250 to $750 and still think burris makes the clearest scope, and it sells for about $350 or so. I have check the price on it recently but it's a great scope
I'd rather be shooting!!

For under $1000, you can find many MK4 leupold's if you shop around, as well as IOR. Ive never heard of Huskemaw....

I've been thinking about the 4200 6-24x Tactical, or the 6500 series from Bushnell.

i think that the best scopes for under a 1000 would be a used nightforce if you can find one for cheap,IOR, monarch x or mark 4. i have tall of these and they seem to work very well.

Leupold MK4, or a long range version of the Leupold VXL is a fantastic scope. I have the VXL 4.5-14x56mm and really like it. Only bad thing i can say about Huskemaw is that they are unproven. A friend has one and likes it, but I have no experience with them personally.
