    New to the site, so first off, howdy.

    Looking at variable scope with mil/mil and some kind of mil dot reticle. Thinking of SWFA SS 5-20 x50, Vortex Razor HD, IOR Valdada 6-24, or ? Mostly target shooting with some hunting. $1500-2000 is my price range. Goal is to shoot out to 2000 yd.

    Recommendations please?

    Thanks in advance

    Nightforce 5.5~22x56 or the new ATACR would have to be top contenders.

    Didn't think the NF was in my price range.

    Impressive.

    My personal motto of late has been "Buy high, sell low" I never find the great deals.

    You stated $1500 ~ $2000. The NXS is under $2000 the ATACR is about $2300

    I've been happy with the SS 5-20 on my 338LM. i love the glass, it has loads of dialing, & i happen to like the reticle alot.

    Go for the Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56 NPR1. They are right under $2000 and they are great scopes.

    i am putting the Razor on my 338lm it is on my .308 right now it is an awsome scope it tracks 100percent and is very clear has allot of space on the turrets, and a great price for a FFP scope that has a 35mm tube,
