    Help recommend an awesome scope in that price range. I will be shooting anything from 5 to 300 yards. Thanks!

    Pick the reticle and focal plane you like and buy it . Not really any junk available in that price range.

    Take a bit and look at IOR Valdada scopes. I have 2 of them (different models)
    I have been more than happy and I think they are a tremendous scope!

    Out to 300 yards? A Bushnell Banner 3-9 and give me the remaining balance of cash...

    Do a thorough search on IOR problems before spending a dime.

    What is most important? Optical clarity? Weight? Ruggedness?

    If it were me I would get the ATACR 4-16x50 - only drawback is weight.

    I have the opportunity to stretch my shots to 500 yards although most shots wont be that distance. I decided on going a bit above my price point and went with the z8i due to its low weight and great optics. Thanks for the help, now I'm off to look the best price

    Vortex Razor AMG 6 - 24 x 50

    This is Vortex' top of the line scope ALL made in USA (even the expensive ED glass) except the German made reticles.
    This scope is the lightest weight for the power range (28 oz.).

    Its 30 mm tube keeps it lighter than 34 mm tubed scopes but the new patented gimbal that holds the reticle is slim enough to give almost as much travel as a 34 mm tube.
