Hey guys. I have ordered the gun now I need some glass. Im kinda on a budget of ABOUT 500 bucks. I have narrowed it down to a few. I dont want ALOT of magnification because i live in virginia where long range isnt really possible. I want a scope that will let me see clear out to mayyybe 600 yards if possible. But ill cut to the chase and see what you guys think. I have narrowed it down to about 4.. if you guys could help me out with my decision i would really appreciate it! thanks!

Re: GLASS HELP!..plz.

I would look at the Zeiss conquest and also the Vortex Viper. Especially the Vortex Viper HS 4-16x50mm LR scope. I have been hearing good things about this scope. Has an option that will not allow you to dial more than 1 turn below your zero so you dont get lost on the turret. Top turret is a target turret and it is in 1/2 moa. Which will be fine in your type of hunting terrain to 700 or 800 yards or so
