Re: cheap scope shooting 1000 yards any ideas

You might give the vortec 6x24x40 w/mildot it is cheap priced and not sure how good it is but for the price you just about have to give it a try.I have looked through them but never shot w/them clarity was good.Maybe someone else knows about them.I am going to buy one just to try it.It will replace a 12 pwr Redfield,hope it works?

I was going to recommend the 3-15x50 Nitrex I got from Natchez for $230 but you did pretty good.

If your looking for a rock solid performer that's budget minded you really cannot go wrong with the SWFA Super Sniper 10x42 or 16x42. Without side parallax they run 299$, With they are 399$.
Check out the reviews. I have 3 and love them. Even took my own to Afghanistan for a backup on my M25

Super Snipers the best bang for the buck. Period. Even for 50 BMG

I hope the OP has since moved on.

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....
I have proven the idea "you get what you pay for" totally wrong. When I went to Alaska I installed a Tasco World Class 4-16X on both the .300 Weatherby and the .375 because I never had problems with them, unlike Burris, Leupold, and Swarovski. I no longer buy those three. I don't hesitate to buy and use Bushnell 6500 and Bushnell 4200, and of course Nightforce. My longest kill was with a Tasco Trajectory model that always tracks. I killed a rock chuck at 527 yards while it was feeding straight away. The 75 grain Amax entered the rump and exited the chest.

To the original poster I would suggest a Tasco World Class. Either a 4-16X or a 6-24X. If you would like to see some side by side comparisons for glass quality, let me know.

My son-in-law has a Savage 7 Rem Mag with a Tasco Trajectory model. He loves to go to the range and challenge anyone, no matter what rifle / scope combo and have a shooting contest. He dials to the 600 yard target puts one in the middle and dials back to 100 and puts one in the "X". Every time.

+ 1. For the Super sniper !!!! Perfect for your application. You would need to spend a lot more $ to get something better. It's a home run for the cost
