Re: Scope choices
Scopes are a fascinating technology. I have been playing with it for the last 10 years or so. In that time, I have seen significant improvements to Leupold, S&B, Zeiss, and others mentioned here.
I think the key point is that people spend a great deal of money on a custom rifle and then take the first scope that is offered by some store clerk, applying less thought that they would if buying a basket ball.
Bottom line, rule of thumb decision rule is that you get what you pay for. I would say with a custom rifle I would budget a minimum of $1000 for a scope, and several hundred for good rings and base. (Of course, more if you can afford it.)
