I'm approaching my first scope dilemma in a little while, and I see the need for another scope as an opportunity to try in person one of the exceptional products I’ve heard about, I just want to make sure that I get something that will best fit my needs. I have a 6.5-284 on order from Kirby right now, I anticipate its arrival sometime this winter. While it should be a very nice custom gun, due to my financial position (I'm a student without a job) the projects budget is particularly tight. In the past year I've been scanning these boards, a couple of scopes have consistently come up whenever long range performance for the money is mentioned. The two I have probably seen the most praise for, esp. recently, are the Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14 SF and the Super Sniper fixed power scopes (the 16x seems to me to be the most appropriate of the three for my situation). With this gun I plan on doing shooting practice (I’m somewhat green to the whole precision shooting game and am looking forward to a rifle I can count on as an accurate platform off of which I can improve technique), long range groundhog hunting (the goal for next summer is to stretch my p.r. from 600 yards to 1000), a little long range deer hunting (I live on a crop farm which needs some crop damage control deer taken throughout the year), and just maybe some type of long range or groundhog shoot (I live in southwest PA and I know there are a variety of shoots within a few hours drive.) I currently have a Leupold 6.5-20x40 LR with side focus on my .22-250. I like this scope with two exceptions. 1st, it takes a very long time for me to feel that I have adequately dialed out the parallax. 2nd, it does not have turrets, just low plastic finger adjustable clicks. Taking the Leupold off of the .22-250 and putting it on the 6.5, and then putting the new scope on the .22-250 (which will be relegated to sub 500 yard chuck hunting, and maybe some coyote hunting) is also an option I’m considering. Which of the scopes I have mentioned (or any outstanding ones I haven’t in a similar price range) do you think would be best suited to this guns tasks? Which do you feel might have the most consistent clicks? Have you had any trouble dialing out parallax with either of these? Sorry for the long post, but I felt their were a lot of issues to cover. Hopefully this can lead to some successful long range hunting stories next summer. Thanks a lot in advance, I have learned an enormous amount of invaluable information by visiting this forum.
