    Thanks for the replies guys. Shipping a scope across the border is not worth the paper work unfortuantely. I will have to buy it up here.

    Definately not no to Vortex, no to Cameraland. I have purchased binocs and rangefinders from them but scopes are not worth the headache..... Nothing like a border to make certain things difficult!

    What ranges will you be shooting at? For instance, here in Oregon we can be hunting in the forests (where I need light gathering and lower magnification - 3-9X50) or on open range (where I need high magnification - 6-24X56). If you can give us an idea of what you are going to be hunting we might be able to steer you better. Also, do you want illumination or not?

    Re: New Scope

    Being as I am new to long range hunting I want to practice enough this year to be comfortable to 600yards. I will worry about stretching out further next year and beyond.I have owned my STW for years but have never actually practiced enough to feel comfortable at long range. The range I have gone to in years past was only out to 300 yards so that Is what I practiced to the new range goes out to 1000 yards. Does that help? My STW goes moose hunting also and shots generally are less than 50 yards so with 6 power being on the low end I do not think it would be optimal which is why I have steered towards 4-16 power

    You can buy this same scope for 279.00 over on Camera Land .... they are on sale. It is a damn fine scope and you can't go wrong with a Viper. It's the best scope for the buck and has been for years.

    You can get a 6.5 - 20 x 50 for 470.00 or so.
