    Leupold 6.5x20 or 8.5x25 with ART reticle. No special turrents and you can move it to a different firearm by remounting and printing out a new card.

    I kinda like the tall turrets,plus I think dialing at long range is more accurate,I could be wrong though.

    I think your best bet would be to ask and try different scopes at your shooting range. Many different scopes available because of the many different SHOOTERS around. Try them out and buy the one that suit's your needs best. Just to add to your problem, I use ZEISS,BURRIS, and LEUPOLD.

    Zeiss conquest looks good. Don't really have a shooting range around that everbody uses . All I have is the old farm but I can strech it to a line or so if put out targets. Gosh darn it I might just to buy one and hope it works ,I think most of these different scopes are of high quality. Might just have to say s___w it and just buy one and hope it works, I wonder how much better a mark 4 would be .

    As you can tell there is a wide selection and it boils down to what you like best.

    My favorite for the money and features is the Mark 4 Leupold.

    Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50 with turrets,excellent glass and tracks very nicely.Very hard to beat for that price range.
