Scope for ELR on .338 Lapua

New to the site, so first off, howdy.

Looking at variable scope with mil/mil and some kind of mil dot reticle. Thinking of SWFA SS 5-20 x50, Vortex Razor HD, IOR Valdada 6-24, or ? Mostly target shooting with some hunting. $1500-2000 is my price range. Goal is to shoot out to 2000 yd.

Recommendations please?

Thanks in advance

Mike

Nightforce 5.5~22x56 or the new ATACR would have to be top contenders.

Impressive.

My personal motto of late has been "Buy high, sell low" I never find the great deals.

You stated $1500 ~ $2000. The NXS is under $2000 the ATACR is about $2300

I've been happy with the SS 5-20 on my 338LM. i love the glass, it has loads of dialing, & i happen to like the reticle alot.
