I have been reading a lot of great info on here . Here is my problem I am looking for a scope that has adjustable turrents for my new to me 300 ultra mag sendero . 26" fluted barrel with brake . This is my second 300 ultra I have one with. A 24" barrel with a 4x12- 50 Z3 Swarovski with a ballistic turrent this is a great set up have shot out to 600 yards an it is reliable , I am wanting to take the sendero out to 1000 yards is has a 20 MOA rail on already , so right now I am looking for a scope for this gun I want to keep it light weight , I would like higher magifaction 3x18-50 or 6x24-50 , I am looking at night force , Swarovski , vortex , and ? I love the clarity of the Swarovski , never looked thru a night force , US optic might be an option ? Trying to keep weight down , does any one have an razor HD ? The vortex 6x24 -50 PSE I have on my Ar 10 I like it also but not a crisp as my Swarovski . Can any give me any others I need to look at that I have not mentioned , I have three leupolds they are ok but have had problems , that they fixed . They just let me down twice that cost me the biggest whitetails I ever had a chance to take . Just throw some ideas or personal experience on any scope that you guys have had my experience with thanks in advance .$1500- $2000 range in price is what I can spend new or used ,

Correct PST , I like the scope optics seam good repletible turrents clicks seam sharp , Zero stop nice also I have went out to 600 with AR10 and can return to zero back at 200 it right back on! My thing is the razor HD is right at $2000 just want to make sure I am make the best choice , thanks for you reply .keep the coming !
With you wanting to keep weight down. My 1 would be mark 4, 6-20x50, I prefer mil,22 oz. Pst you have 6-24 at 23 oz.Ziess conquest6-20x50,21 oz. good glass,45 moa ,not a lot.The NF IS 32 OZ and longer,USO same and longeer yet also 3-17x44 $2600Premier, S&B, LAST 4 all great turrets,great glass and all heavier and some big$$
exactlty what 6x6 posted, just went through this and the NXS is 2lbs and the Razor is +2lbs. Still checking to see how leupy, zeiss, PST compare in regads to glass. From all I have read Zeiss is probably the best optically.
Ill throw this out as I just set up a mid-weight hunting rifle.......I called up the Leuopld custom shop and ordered a VX-3 Longe range 6.5-20 side focus, 30mm tube / 40mm objective, with a TMR reticle and M1 dial on elevation only.
It set me back a little under a thousand bucks, and gives me most of the functionality of my regular Mk'4s.
I now have a 24" medium weight barrelled 284 Winchester that weighs in at just over 8lbs with scope and can drill a milk jug full of water to 600yds quite easily.
I have buddies with the NF, Swaro scopes ect and I still prefer the balance between cost and performance the Leupold's provide.....if you want something more then start thinking US Optics and Schmidt & Bender.
