Re: best scope?

For the price and the quality the Bushnell are a good way to go but I prefer and the Vortex PST line. Another good one is the Weaver Tactical line.

We stock all of them so if we can be of help feel free to ask.

I agree they are not a Nightforce but they are nice also. I have used them myself. We also sell the Conguest Scopes.

That it got to chose from these 2. Bushnell Úlite tactical 4.5-30 mildot and Sightron lrmd 10-50X60.

Sightron are a we more on the price side put to have a longrange rig it take a good scope!!

So your ideas?

Re: best scope?

I have a sightron S3 6-24X50, at first I thought it was a really good scope but the more I use it the more I dislike it. The reason I have come to dislike it is it does not seem clear enough, I had it first on my 300RUM and even with that at 200 yards no matter what target I used I had a very hard time seeing the bullet holes, now that I have dropped down to a 280AI its even harder to see the bullet holes.
I also wonder if I am expecting too much from a $1000 scope?
Thou I did check out a viper pst and it was nice and then checked out a swarovski and a nightforce and the last two are in a whole different league.
This is just my 2 cents worth. Good luck
