I'm looking for a scope to use only for the range out to 1000 yards. I have a scope that goes up to 14x and that's fine, but I'd like to be able to zoom out more since I'm trying to shoot out to 1000 yards. This scope will be a safe queen besides range use. I'm sure this topic has been beat to death, but my searching skills aren't that good I guess because I didn't find any other topics like this. I know all this comes down to how much $$ are you willing to spend. Well I don't mind spending more than $200 on a mueller, but I do mind spending $1000 for a leupold. I'm looking for something in the middle, but above all I want something that works! I'm after function more than finish. I want reasonably clear glass without getting cloudy when maxed out. I want the click adjustments to be accurate. The focusing stuff I don't really care about as long as the scope does focus. Cosmetically I don't care what it looks like.
