after shooting 300 and 400 meters the first time with my plain 3-9 scope and wanting to be able to shoot 500 meters more easily i think i will need to invest in a new scope. a friend of mine has a BSA 4-16 with mil dot reticle sells for about a hundred. he has had pretty good luck, has good reviews on cabelas site, what do u guys think about them? i was also looking at nikon monarchs and bushnell some i will probly be willing to spend up to 300 and want a 4-14.5 or 4-16 with mil dot. thanks for any suggestions!
