Re: Need Optics advice for a new Tikka T3
A 3-9 power would be more than enough at the ranges you mentioned.
Zeiss Conquest would be my first choice in that price range.
You could probably pickup a 3.5-10x44mm Conquest from Jon @ The Optic Zone for around $400, but it would be a little more heavy than the 3-9.
Nikon Monarch would be a good fit as well.
Lots of choices in your price range and that would serve you well at those ranges..sakofan..Good luck!!! [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
It's only rock and roll....But I like it!
