Re: long range rifle scope

For the OP's 6.5X68 going 3100fps with a berger 140VLD he should only need about 21.9MOA to get to 1000 yds from a 100yd zero. The weaver 3-15X50 has about 42MOA adjustment. From dead center, this would be pushing the abilities of the scope. The EBX reticle can help here since it is subtended to 7.98MOA with dots and then @ 14.6 MOA for the post.
The vortex is a much more expensive scope, and per the original post he is looking for something that won't break the bank, and still be serviceable.

Also, can somebody comment on whether 15X is enough for long distance as I believe that was also part of his original question.

112Savage,

He also said he would like a NF or Leo in the future that is why I suggested the Vortex PST because it is almost half the price and end up with a much better scope then the Leupold and equal to the NF IMHO.

PS: He may not be able to get the Vortex 6-24x50mm PST Mil / Mil scope in New Zealand anyway.

This is the scope I have except it is MIL / MIL which you would probably be most comfortable with. MOA is in inches, but MIL is in millimeters.
