Re: Scope Survey:

Another vote for the Clearidge Ultra, you get a heck of a lot of bang for your buck with this scope!!

Re: Scope Survey:

Leupold VX-III LR with varmint reticle. Might spend a little more than your $600 if you do your shopping, but it will be well worth it.

Re: Scope Survey:

Sightron SIII 6-24x50mm, but it will cost more like $750. If you shop hard maybe $700.

Re: Scope Survey:

I'm going to agree with Phorwath on this one and go with the Sightron S3 in
6-24x50mm. I have not had much luck with the Sightron S2, but after looking at the glass of the S3 about a month ago, I ordered one. If the turrets are repeatable, this will be a great scope for the price. They will be even more popular when Sightron comes out with a MOA reticle. Put a bug in there ear for that one.

Re: Scope Survey:

thanks for the comments fellas...
I agree about Sightron S3's they are indeed a great scope the money..if they only had better reticle choices.
And the Leupold V3 Varmint reticle LR/T is a great scope too, mounted one last week on the bench gun cause my Kelby's weren't high enough for the NF.

thanks again guys
