I am giving advice to a buddy so I thought I would ask here. I know my preference. In order of price (lowest to highest): Leupold Mark IV. 4.5-14 US Optics SN3 3.2-17 (edited) Schmidt Bender 4-16 Application: 200-500 yards perched on a .30 cal bolt. Which scope would you recommend your grandmother buy and why. If you don't give a technical or specification reason, then just be honest with your reasons why such as "made in U.S." etc. Thanks.
