New Stick!

Got a new one today. Rem 700 in .300 WM with the 5r barrel. I have to keep saving pennies for a scope, so I'd really like some suggestions on what y'all would use.

Re: New Stick!

For the money, you cant beat Vortex. They have anything you might need. From hunting to long range. First focal plane to second focal plane. lifetime, no questions asked warranty that is transferable,from person to person.

I have one vortex, a 3-9x40 Crossfire II. It's on a ruger M77 Hawkeye .22-250. I hope that this scope isn't indicative of the quality you get with Vortex.

I have a vortex pst 4-16X50 on my ruger 6.5 Creedmoor and its exceptional glass for the money. Cant beat it.

Re: New Stick!

I've been very happy with my Nikon Monarchs. Great clarity and mine have all tracked very well. I have a 2-8 on my .22 and a 4-16x50 on my .308. Plan to move that scope to a 7 rem mag and get another 2-8 or 2.5-10 for the .308

Re: New Stick!

I haven't heard Nightforce yet. I've been wanting one but maybe this means that it isn't worth the money. How far are y'all shooting? Currently, I have a zeiss conquest 3-9x40, zeiss conquest 4.5-14x50 and an swfa ss 10x42. I'd really like something to make 1K shots. I want to shoot from 100yds to 1k and everything in between. Can that be done?
