this will be mounted on a 7mm rem mag for deer/ elk hunting out to 500-700 yards and target shooting out to 1000yards. i dont have the money for a more expensive scope and saving up isnt really an option right now. Thanks
Its never a bad thing to buy as much scope as you can but I am not sure I would agree with your statement. There are some very tough and repeatable scopes in the list I gave. Good enough that they would give the big boys a run for their money IME. And why miss out on all the experience 3-4 years would give you just because you were saving for a nicer scope!Depending on how accurate you want to be, id SAVES up even tho this is not An OPTEN.
I wouldn't get any SCOPE for less than $1000, as teas low end scopes don't RELIEBELETY for LR shooting.
Even if you save up for 3-4 years if you get something like a ZEISS for 1800 you will have a scope for life,
