Scope recommendation

I'm looking for some input on a scope for a longrange hunting rifle. The scope will be going on a 338 Lapua. I've been trying to find a used 4x14 or 4x16 30mm scope but haven't had any luck. I've been thinking about the Tasco SS10x42M. Does anyone have any pros or cons about using this scope for longrange hunting to 1000yds. Also what about the field of view for closer shots?
Thanks in advance for your replies.
Wayne

Wayne, My buddy has a few of them, not the best for clarity, A nice Burris Black Diamond, Signature in 4-16X w/Bal-Mildot would be right up your alley, Jay

Jay,
Thanks for the input. I've looked at the Burris BD 4x16 but it doesn't come with target turrets and I would like a scope with them.

Re: Scope recommendation

Wayne, Burris's custom shop can install the target turrets for about $80.00. and they will change the reticles as well.

Re: Scope recommendation

Thanks guys for all your input.
Texas,
I think the Zeiss is a 1" tube, I looked at a 4x14 and it's a really nice scope but I want and need a 30mm.
halfbreed,
I thought about having Burris put the target knobs on their BD 4x16 but Im looking for something right now and didn't want to have to buy a scope and send it off and wait for it.
I appreciate all your help, keep the suggestions coming.
Wayne

Re: Scope recommendation

The next best thing is the Nikon Tacticals or even the Titanium one. They have the 30mm tube and yes you are right about the Zeiss being a 1".

Also been seeing some good things about the IOR scopes, theres a review over at Sniper Country on them and on here too, just a thought.
