Re: Need help choosing a scope please

I have the exact rifle/stock combo you have. I wound up putting a zeiss conquest 3.5-10x44 on it and it has served me well hunting in Canada, NC, and VA. Now I am building a custom 7WSM and leaning more and more toward the vortex viper PST in 4.5-14x50. This Scope has illum reticle and turrets and it also make it in a 6.5-20x50. I beleive the FFP ones are around $900 and SFP $700...typing this on my phone so can't remember exactly but this would be another scope to consider.

Re: Need help choosing a scope please

You are correct Leupold and Burris are just midrange Mybad ooops....
Im fairly sure 75 %of the ppl on this planet would say a 1000$ for a riflescope is
Hi-end...... But I do stand corrected..

At this moment there is only 1 person I know that wouldnt say I was flippen nuts to spend a 1000$ on a scope.... Includeing My father who is responsible for me even haveing anything to do with guns Thanks Dad lol... OK next order of business..

I couldnt help myself I had a 1000$ budget.......I considered my options and kept it real....Will I ever shoot a 1000 yds prolly not unless at the range and very few go that far around here........... My comparison scope is a Ncstar 6-24x50 which is on my 30.06. Im fairly sure my choice will serve me juust fine and prolly more than expected....................
Oh ya choice was Burris XTR 4-16x50 Illmildot. Ive read a few places that the clicks are 1 in. I called Burris tech they said its a typo that should be changed the cliks are .250 as assured to me by the tech...
I wanted a good dependable scope I wanted 6x24 did I need it no 4-16 is just fine got the turrets mildot even Illum for under 1000$

OMG I SPENT A 1000$ ON A RIFLE SCOPE AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!

What size and brand rings and base?????????????????????????? Again here's rifle
Remmy 700 sps varmint .308 26 in bl.
Getting to a 1000 would be nice. There is 74 inch@100 yds of elev at hand .

Re: Need help choosing a scope please

Take a look at the Wotac and Falcon Menace scopes. They have a lot of reviews of them on Snipershide.com Forum. Also Super Sniper scopes are very good scopes along with the Vortex Viper scopes.
