My eye balls hurt, my head is spinning. I have been reading and reading and asking and asking about scopes for months. Cabelas, Scheels, Bass Pro, internet, etc.... except for LRH. I have 3 new rifles and none of them have scopes cause I can't narrow anything down. Have a REM AR-15 VTR .223 Have a REM VSSF ll 22-250 Have a REM Sendero SF ll 300 RUM As far as reticals, I really like the DOT retical for small varmit calibers due to its simplicity (spelling) and ease of on target use. That is my choice. As far as the 300 RUM, I'd like a scope to dial in that is actually accurate. I had the Leupold VX3 with the Boone & Crockett retical and it was way off after about 450 yards with the load I used that matched thier dope chart exactly. I'd like a scope for the RUM that is simple as far as the retical, but I can dial up and place on target.....with extensive testing and a dope chart. Price for the 22-250 and the .223 ................under a $1000 each Price for the 300 RUM ..........don't really care. I am so lost on which scopes cause some do not offer the DOT rectical. Would like a higher powered magnafication for all.....say 4-16x50 30mm tube for RUM and or 6.5x24x50 30mm tube for varmiters. Ones that are CLEAR close range to infinity. Nikon? Sightron? Nightforce? Leupold? Bushnell? Vortex? Maybe I'm just dumb, but the side parallax is a pain to me.....I think. I have to adjust it to see clearly up close, but if I have to make a quick long shot, in order to see clearly through the scope, I have to adjust it first to see??? Huh?? That doesn't seem to make much sence to me. So, what works? Hard to choose when I can't take them all out in the field and shoot. Although Bushnell has this Elite 6500 series, their name still worries me. Same with Sightron, Vortex, and even Nikon. Just not sure, so any and all infor would be great from all you guys that really know your stuff. Again, thanks for any future help.
