Re: Best scope for 600-700 yards?
IMHO, Luepold is the way to go, if people ask me what to get its what I suggest without hesitation, clear, rugged and if they fail, repaired no questions asked, all for free(except frieght)
$40 from NZ had mine back in a month.
A friend of mine had a IOR, sold it and got himself a 8.5-25 VXIII and loves it.
I will leave you with this to think about, the IOR my mate got was about $2400 NZ the Luepold was $1400 NZ, the IOR was not $1000 better than the Luepold.
My only wish to Luepold is that they make a bigger vari power scope
say 12-42 would be great!
I would suggest up to 20 x magnification for that range too, I have a spare 4.5-14 VXIII that Im putting on my 300WSM for ranges out to 500 yrds which I think will be plenty,another mate has a 4-10 on his 300WSM Savage and hes wacking the crap out of the 10" 500 yrd gong.
The reticle is another thing to consider too, for me I just use a plain olde duplex, none of this fancy TMR, Mildot,Boone and Crocket bla bla BS, most of the guys on here will "click" their windage and elevation on, so I think these fancy reticles have their place but if you have the time and confidence you will click.
Best of luck
