    After reading numerous threads I have a few questions and would like some advice/suggestions from you guys. I am brand new to long range shooting I have my first dedicated long range rifle and need to put some glass on it first off I want to be able to shoot to 1000 yds and my budget is $1300. The 2 scopes I've come up with so far is the SS 5-20x50 HD and the Vortex 6-24x50 PST and I would like to know what other scopes I should consider that fall in with these 2 scopes. Lastly I know there is a difference in the cost of these scopes so is the SS worth the extra coin and am I leaving out one that needs to be in the running?..Thanks for the help !
