Check out this:
Sightron 4-16x42 $347.79

Nikon 6-18x40 $309.99

Just because you have the cash to blow, does not mean you should not be frugal and save some $$$ for ammo or reloading gear.

$900 would get some excellent glass and plenty of reloading supplies and gear.

Point well taken Not in a hurry to blow $900. Shopping and weighing options right now. Want the best for the best price, but don't want to save a hundred or two now, spend 600 and in a year regret not spending another 1or 2. If I'm satisfied, as I'm sure you can relate to, I will soon forget about the money spent. But if I'm not, less spent will burn twice as much.

This is why I bit the bullet and bought the 6-24x50mm PST. I can not afford $1800 or more for a scope. Mine will do anything that I want it to do for half the price of the high end scopes like a Night Force except the glass won't be as clear. My buddy has 2 NF and even though mine isn't as clear it is still plenty clear enough for me to hold at 400 yards with very strong heat waves to shoot a 1+3/4" 3 shot group. I have also hit gongs all the way out to 1100 or 1200 yds.

Re: New Scope, Any suggestions?

Joseph,

Been doing more scope shopping, and read some more of your replies on other threads. Just wondering if there is anything that you dislike about your Vortex, no matter how small? As I look at more scopes and hear more opinions, I keep coming back to this scope. It's a little more than I want to spend, but like I said, I want no regrets. Probably will be ready to buy in mid January. I don't think I've read anything negative anywhere yet with this scope.

Thanks, Kevin
