Re: Looking for best tracking scope for 6.5 Creedmoor

I went to the only local store I found that sold Sightron and they didn t have any at all, I asked the clerk if they had any and he said he sent a pair of binos in for a customer and sightron tried to get the customer to pay for a new pair. Who knows how much truth there is to that.

Sucks, cause I really wanted to look through one.

Going to look at the vortex again if I can find one locally.

This is what usually happens and why I end up with another leupold, which isnt the worst thing in the world either.

thanks, gary

Re: Looking for best tracking scope for 6.5 Creedmoor

I would look at these here:
Zeiss - Camera Land NY

Look down towards the bottom and check out the demo deals. I would go with the 4.5-14x44 with the target turrets. Heck of a deal on a great scope.

As to Sightron, they are good scopes, never have heard anyhting but excellent things about their customer service.........

Re: Looking for best tracking scope for 6.5 Creedmoor

Thanks for all the suggestions, after looking at these on the internet, I think the best value would be a Vortex Viper HS LR or a PST in the 4-16X40.
Most people say the tracking and repeatablility is very good. Comparing these with other scopes with the same features the Vortex seems like the best bang for the buck. I could get the HS LR for about $200 less than a comparable VX-3. Gonna see if I can find a used one in the classifieds.

Thanks again, Gary
