Re: Tryin this again

I like the Leupy 4.5X14 LR VX-3 as well. Have one on my 300 WM and it does very well. Another worth considering is the Sightron SIII 6x24x50 LRMD. I have one of these on a 308 and this scope is incredible. Has been completey spot on to 1,000 yds and completely repeatable. It may just be the gun it's on, but I always feel that it is more precise with adjustments. Basically, just range, dial, squeeze and hit. They go for around $806 and well worth it.

Well, that's it! I've slapped the gavel on that Sightron! I feel like it let my gun reach on out there a lil more than the leupy 4.5-14. Good Lord! I'll never say anything else to my wife about making her mind up! LOL! YA'll have a gooden and thanks again.

The Burris XTR 6-24 gets my vote. I paid $600 on ebay brand spanking new for mine. Some of these scopes come with 1 MOA adjustments on the vertical turret but it can be changed to 1/4 MOA for $40. I prefer this scope to the Leupolds, Nikons, and Bushnells and it is made here in the US if that is important to you.
