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.

Re: New Scope

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

I second that. The Vortex PST are awesome scopes! I have 2 of them, soon to be 3!

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.
