Looking for a new Scope

Hello' everyone, I'm currently looking into buying my first long range scope and I've got roughly $800-$1000 to work with. If you were me, what would you go with in that price range? I'd like something with a 20x-24x max power. Any & all opinions would be greatly apreciated.

Thanks,

SH

    Will do BB, but I'm kind of set on something with a 30mm tube. Thanks for the reply though!

    Will do Nape, which reticle does your's have, the mil-dot or target dot? Which would you recommend for hunting? I heard the mil-dot was a bit thick at long distances, is that the case or did they change that since 2008?

    The Clearidge Ultra XP5 is definately worth a look, a little under your budget, but worth a look. Large Selection of Discounted Scopes, Binoculars, Rangefinders and More!
