Re: PERFECT GLASS... on a budget!

I have a Cabela's Alaskan Guide 6.5x2, 44 mm I think?? Sells new for $379.00 or so. Mil Dot reticle. It is quite nice. Glass is clear and very satisfactory for my eyes. The +/- diopter adjustment is a great feature. I have used it long range to 800 yds on a 270 Win with great success. Great for yotes.

However, I'm pretty much down on 2nd Focal Plane reticles with dots or BCDs and have switched to a fixed 16X Super Sniper on the 270 AM. It's just what the doctor order for my specific use.

If you're interested in the 6.5x20 gimme a holler.

    Alright, I'll probably get booted off this site for recommending this, but try the Bushnell Banner 6-24 x 40mm with AO and mil-dot reticle (item #71-6244).
    I just purchased a used Savage 12FV with a Banner 6-18x50, completely expecting to throw the scope in the trash. After shooting the rifle and using the scope, it's staying!
    FWIW, I've got both Leup. and Zeiss glass on my other rifles, but for a varmint rig I'm satisfied with the Banner right now.

    All I can say about this scope is that I bought one and took it dog shooting. Came back home and bought another one! Bright, clear, solid build, haven't seen many scopes that 4 clicks right, left, up or down will move the bullet 1" in that direction!
