Looking for best tracking scope for 6.5 Creedmoor

Hello, just got a new cooper 6.5 Creedmoor and have been running a Leupold 4.5-14X40 LR 30 mm tube with duplex reticle and MOA target turret.

What I am looking for is something in 12-16 max power range, decent glass, enough elevation adjustment to get me to 700 yards or longer and most importantly Excellent Tracking of the turret. Under $1000.00

I have been using Leupolds for a long time and really want to try a different brand, again the tracking is the most important thing.

looking for opinions of what you have used and recommend.

Thanks, Gary

The Sightron SIII will do everything you want, but it's a 6-24X. I absolutely love mine and it's going back on my Creedmoor when it gets back in October or November.

Sounds to me like you already have one of the best scopes. Trade it in at Swfa and get what u think you need. I am running a mk 4 m5 right now I upgraded from a strait 10x mil dot. Leupold tracks, if yours dosent send it in and tell them it's not tracking.

Re: Looking for best tracking scope for 6.5 Creedmoor

It actually tracks very good, just tired of using the same thing year in and out, wanted to test the waters with a new brand.
I keep upgrading from a vari x III to a VX III to a VX 3, because they have always been good to me but guess I am getting bored

I looked at the sightron and they seem great but didn't want the 24 power, may have to give it another look.

Thanks, gary
