Hey guys there is a lot of different threads on this but I thought I would start another and get help on what to buy. Currently I have a Vortex HSLR 4-16x44 with turret changed to 1/4 min adj and its mounted one custom 6.5 284 ( pics are in gun photos ) I have been shooting awhile now and have extended my ranges out past 1000 and I feel I need a better scope keep in mind this is a hunting/ target rifle that gets used for a lot of sheep hunting so it sits in a scabbard a lot. Oh and I use Talley light weight rings in med height. So I have researched and I want to stay with SFP scope unless someone talks me into FFP witch I have never used. So my first choice is NF nsx 5.5 -22x50 although the price is crazy and I really like the capped wind age knob on my vortex not sure how exposed will do in my scabbard. Plus the extra 10oz I will have to suck up Second choice is NF SHV 5-20x56 but I heard turrets are a little mushy for dialing all the time and the big 56 mm obj has got me re thinking. Third choice is Sightron 6-24x50 but not sure I like the reticle and there is no Zero stop but everything is capped and it does have a ton of elevation and price is good and it is a lighter scope but again the reticle throws me off on this scope not sure if I like it. Guys do you have any other suggestions for optics or comments on my choices I would like to be thrifty and not spend huge dollars but if I do go NSX I will buy second hand at a reduce price so that will help and if ab solute will buy new but I would like to hear what your thoughts are. Oh and I do want a scope with enough elevation adj so I don't have to run a rail.
