New Scope

I am in the market for a new scope. I have a Sako 75 SS in 7mm STW that I would like to upgrade scopes on. Currently has a Leupold VX 2 3-9X40 on it. What does everyone recommend? Looking for something in the 4-16 power range.

    what is your price range? i would recomend a completly diffrent scope for a f class rifle than i would a hunting rig etc.

    as far as overall bang for your buck id look hard at the vortex pst 4-16. you can get it in ffp or sfp

    id look at zeiss conquest if you plan to hold range

    Call Doug at Camera Land (he's one of this site's sponsors) and he should be able to hook you up in your price range.
