Re: Help with First long range scope
I was in your same shoes a year ago. I, like you, also didn't want to spend more money than I needed to to shoot accurately. However, I have also been down the ole road many times of wishing that I would have just dropped a little more coin to get quality equipment. (I found that lesson out the hard way with my rangefinder). I have to say, if you have a budget like you mentioned, then my advice is just save a little more, wait a little longer, and get the Nightforce. You won't be sorry. I have several "cheap" scopes. None of which are good beyond a couple hundred yards. I got the NXS 5.5-22X 56 and could not be happier. My wife nearly fainted when she saw how much the NF cost, but she quickly got over it. So, after saying that, my vote is for the NF. If you do, you will only cry once. Good luck.
