You were looking at MSRP for those. Many websites have them cheaper. SWFA will probably have something on the samplelist for an even better deal. Leup scopes CAN be good deals but a scope setup similar to the vortex or sightron will run you a lot more $$$. VX2s are ok for a cabelas style product but I certainly wouldnt hobble myself with one for LR.
Manufacturer websites are cool to look at but when you want a deal look into our site sponsors such as SWFA or opticplanet etc. Swfa has 4x16x50 with the moa 1 reticle for $650 and a 6x24 for $750. I didnt check sightron its too much work but they are in the same range. Either of these would be a much better choice than what you were looking at.
The weaver tactical and bushnell elite tactical are also right around the same $$ as the others and bear checking out also.
