    I will soon be getting a Cooper Jackson Game in 280AI which I hope to be my long(ish) range rig.

    I don't really plan to ever take a shot on game past 400 yards but I'd like a capable set up for up to 500 yards. Under 300 is most common.

    Rifle and scope will be used 98% of the time on the range and I prefer more magnification at the range without giving up too much on the low end. So I was thinking 4-16x, 3-12x etc.

    I'd like to be able to dial turrets for elevation and use hash marks for windage.

    What do you guys think would be a worthy scope to top this rifle with?

    I provide no budget. I am happy to spend less if I get a scope that can do it all, or more if it is worthwhile.

    You know, I had completely forgotten that the old Conquest series had other scopes than my 3-9x 40mm. How silly of me.

    Any idea if these have a zero stop?

    I'm pretty sure they're not ZS...But the you can reset the turrets to zero.
