Illuminated reticle would be nice but not a must have. budget +/- 1200.
considering Vortex PST 4-16
Also looking for opinions on custom turrets. I read some that love them and others say that even the custom matched to your load turrets are not all that accurate. whats the deal on them?
I recommend that the scope be 3 to 4power on the lower end and 14 to 16 on the upper power for your type /distance of shooting.
Also I prefer the 30mm tubes (More turret adjustment) and a 50 mm objective for the optimum
light gathering ability) 56mm objectives gets to large and in the way for a hunting rifle IMO.
