Re: Scope recommendation

For 120 minute of elevation, the Tasco SS 10X42 is the best bang for the buck. The next one is the Elite 3200 10X (80min).

The optics on the Tasco is not bad, better then the 3200 but not as good as a 4200 Elite. I use mine to quarter a 9X9" target at 1000m. Have used it to 1800m on "MOA" size targets.

The field of view is very wide and probably as wide as a 30mm tube can get. Close range is not a problem as the AO will adjust.

Overall, I am very impressed with the Tascos and Elite. For the money vs elevation, they beat Leupold hands down. For optical perfection, I would lean towards the Nikon and IOR. For those where money no object, a Nightforce would be a great choice.

Leupold makes very good products. I just believe that they are over priced.
