need a good scope

I was recently introduced to the long range world. Over the last several weeks I've been experimenting and reading. My question is, is there a scope that will fill the long range requirements: repeatability,paralax adjustment, 4-16 magnification, enough elevation adjustment,etc., for say $5-600?
Thanks

    I would recommend the Nikon Monarch. Not sure how much "up" you require though. But the monarch would probably suit you..sakofan....Welcome to LRH!!!!!!

    Maybe you want to look at the Zeiss lineup. Great target knobs, glass and good old German manufacturing. I had a Nikon also but sold it and put the Zeiss on it, not that the Nikon was bad, the Zeiss is just better IMO.

    I would suggest the Conquest too, but I thought it would put him over his budget somewhat..sakofan.. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    Re: need a good scope

    I looked at both the scope lines. Nikon makes a 4-12 and a 5.5-16.5 in the Monarch. I would prefer nothing greater than 4 power on the bottom, and higher than 12 power on the top. Nikon also makes a 4-14 side focus in the Buckmaster line, is this a good scope? Zeiss makes a 4.5-14 in the Conquest, but they only put the nice target knobs on the 6.5-20. The knobs on the 4.5-14 looked rather cheesy.

    Any suggestions??

    The 4.5-14x50 conquest has the good knobs that are on the 6.5-20x50.
