Swarovski
S & Bender
Leupold Mk 4
Night Force
March

    if you go with swaro make sure it has enough internal travel to do the job your wanting to do. the 1inch models probably dont.

    id add votrex to the list but most of your scopes should do the trick

    What are you hunting? What caliber?

    How do you plan to compensate for elevation and wind?

    The cal. is a .300 Supermag(improved 30/378) should fire a 225 grn at 3450
    Pigs,goats and deer at 1000 to 1500 yds
    Yes we would have to compensate for wind and elevation.
