PERFECT GLASS... on a budget!
Hello all and it is great to see [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] you all again, have been really busy. I purchased a Savage 12FVSS in 22-250 after much discussion and research here. Now I need a scope, and many of you will remember discussion about optics recently for my other rifle. I have had Leupold, Bushnell, etc. and now have a Conquest... thanks to ALL of you! AND, it truely is am awesome piece of glass, expensive, but none the less, AWESOME!
While I know this is gonna offend about 75% of our general population, I have to put it out there that TO ME Leupold and even the Bushnell 3200 & 4200's are over priced and over-rated. Just my opinion. I have always had Leupold but my last Mk III 4.5X... LR was no better than the glass in a top of the line Simmons or Tasco. Now the Zeiss... it is awesome, but I cannot step up again.
I need long range glass for what will mostly be a varmint gun. I like the tactical reticles for this kind of work, but I do not know a lot about what is available. Everyone's suggestion will be the Super but it is out because i need adjustable. I need to be in the $200- $300 range, and at the expense of my marriage, I could go up to $500 for the PERFECT glass. I believe ideal for me would be some undiscovered, unknown future Zeiss... no, in all seriousness maybe somthing really nice that is either a GREAT DEAL or Unknown and Underrated. Anybody know of somthing that might fit the bill???
Thank You ALL in Advance! Rod
