    My first vote lies with the Leupold, I currently have all Leupolds and actually use a VXIII 8.5-25x50 LR on my 7RM (pic below). Have been very satisfied, reliable, consistent, turret adjustments. Sure no zero-stop, but then again I may not know what I'm missing as I've never owned a zero-stop scope.

    Second vote would be the Vortex... but I don't own one, yet...

    Just my .02

    I have a Vortex HS LR 4-16x44. I have had in for a while and really like it. I think they are a great deal for money.

    Thanks guys I'm not trying I be disrespectful I just knew a little nudge would get this going I'm thinking of going toward the Vortex until I discover something that would make me feel otherwise right now the plan is to go Viper PST in 6x24 with the ebr reticle in FFP their web site sad it won't be out till this summer if I get impatient I may just go with the current model. I don't think I need an illuminated reticle but they don't have an FFP in the viper hs lr model and the more plain hs model with a capped wind age has 1/2 moa clicks which I'm not a fan of. Anymore thought? Any opinions welcomed.

    The viper hslr is ffp. I suggest having a look at the xlr retical.

    The XLR is what I ment you can get it without the illumination but it's 1/2 moa clicks or in the PST with illumination neither one is avail till this summer at least that's what the website says
