Sightron doesn't seem bad for the money. Looking at about $250. My dad's got one and clicks out to 750 yards; hits steel every time and tracks very well also.

Re: cheap scope shooting 1000 yards any ideas

Try a Super Sniper scope. They are fixed power 10X and 20X x 44mm. It has tactical turretts and good clear glass for the price. Will dial up any range from a 1000 and in, will hold zero and the best of all, you can find them on the net for $200 to $300. I would recommend the 20x if you are going to be shooting 300+ yards on a regular basis. I;ve had the 10X scope for four years now on my Bushmaster AR15 and I hunt everything from deer to coyotes. All you have to do is focus to yards, range your target will the mil-dot and dial in the new settings. GREAT scope for the money.

By the way, this scope was originally designed for the military. It was manufactured by Tasco to mil specs.

There is a 10X Super Sniper for sale in the Optics for sale section of this forum. I have one and agree they are fantastic for the price.

Re: cheap scope shooting 1000 yards any ideas

Ive always been a firm believer in the 'ol adage "A gun is only as good as it's sights" I dont believe you have to shoot a Nightforce, SB etc. to get a good scope, but from my experience you really get what you pay for in a scope. Maybe I'm a gun snob, or have extravagant taste, but I prefer to "rat hole" my cash for what I really want. For what its worth, thats my thoughts....

Get a 20 to 30 MOA rail for your rifle if your shooting out that far. Makes scope adjustments easier. try a SWFA super sniper 10x or 20x. 30mm tubes. These have mildot reticles Have the 20x on my 50 BMG and the 10x on my .308. Weaver is good too. have a 10x target on my .243. I've shot all out and beyond 1000yrds.
