Final opinions

Well im about to break down and get a scope. Just wanting some last minute opinions on a pure hunting scope with longest shots being 500-600 yds. Looking for a scope great in low light conditions and a Ballistic Turret. Thanks guys

Re: Final opinions

What price range? I have a Vortex 6-24x50mm PST FFP MOA with a custom turret. $950 + about $100 for the custom turret.

.......Just don't tell him you need a dolly to haul it around...

I have one too and it's darn heavy. besides, for a 600 yard maximum shot range, 24 on the high end is a bit much.

Re: Final opinions

Don't consider it breaking down. You need a scope! Have you considered a Leupold? I just listed one in the optics for sale section.

Swarovski z5 with the ballistic turret or if you want to get crazy, pick up a nightforce NXS and really be able to dial like you want.

Re: Final opinions

Send your leupy in and get m1 knobs or target turrets. Just a couple hundred bucks
