im looking to spend at or under $1k on my first "nice" scope. its going on a 700 sps-v in .308 that will be my go to gun for spot n stalk whitetail, pigs and varmints. i will also use it for banging steel or milk jugs from however far away i can get on my property, i would love to try and shoot 1k yds if i can find a spot. i had been set on waiting for the viper pst 4-16x50 ffp mil/mils to come back out, but then i got to looking at IOR's 2.5-10x42 ffp mil/mil. another $400, no parallax and less power, but a better quality scope overall and much better glass. i know 10x is probably enough for the hunting that i would do, but i feel like id prefer more power for target shooting. i would really prefer a ffp scope, but mil/mil is an absolute must for me. do any of the zeiss conquest scopes come ffp and/or mil/mil? these seem to be in my budget, but im not sure how practical that z1000 reticle would be for me. i dont really like their mil dot either, seems like it would cover up too much target at long range. i much prefer hash like in IOR's mp8 reticle.
