Re: What Scope?
For the money you specified I say the new variable power Mark 4 by leupold. I think you can get em from Cabelas for about 800 bucks.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (where the shot goes, how big the group is, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
