I'd buy a Leupold Mark 4 4.5-14x50mm LR/T with a TM reticle. Then I'd spend the $1,000 I had left over on other stuff.

I love the zeiss victory but they are not light weight scopes, either.

Last week I bought a Swaro Z6 2.5=15x56 with the BT, and it's by far the best scope I have ever owned. Awesome for low light and long range shooting.

Re: Looking for advice, $2100 to spend on first scope.

The A7 is a great rifle but not worthy of a $2100 dollar scope. Get yourself a good hunting weight scope, ie... Ziess, leupold, Sightron, etc… Now take the other $1000 re-barrel/bed your action.
I guarantee you will out shoot your current set up with a $2100 scope attached to it any day of the week.



Again, just my 2 cents worth.

I just got my 6.5-20x56 Leupold VX3 and its AWESOME!!! Sweet glass and lifetime warranty and did forget to say MADE IN THE USA!
For around 1000 to 1200 can get you all the scope you need, spend the rest on reloading stuff or if you dont reload buy more ammo!

of course thats JMHO.

Re: Looking for advice, $2100 to spend on first scope.

Leupolds are very good scopes but until you compare them to german or jap glass they do not compare. If im not mistaken the best leupold scopes made are done by premire reticle?Which in my opinion is not the best glass.Just my 2 cents
My moto is you can only shoot as good as you can see
