Re: Tryin this again

leupold,nikon, and burris are all excellent, and available in this price range .

I use all three, in the 14 to 24 power range (variables) lean more to the leupold in vx3 4.5x14x50 class, and a toss up with the others in the 6x24x50 class, all 30mm tubes. go look thru all of them and pick the one that you prefer.

+1

I couldn't have said it better .

I also like the 4.5x 14 VX3 30mm tube and 50mm objective best.

In fact that is what I have on my 7mm RUM.

You might check these Vortex Vipers out. They have MOA reticles.

Vortex Optics - Viper PST 4-16x50 EBR-1 MOA Reticle

There are a coupleof sponsers here that can probably get one for you.

There is a Leupold 4.5x14x50 LR for less than $700 in the optics for sale section right now. Great scope.

Bushnell 6500 tactical, Zeiss Conquest, and Clearidge Ultra XP5 are all worth a look in that price range.
