I am currently having a precision hunting rifle built for me and I am a little stuck as to what optics to put on it. I do most of my hunting in Pennsylvania and South Carolina on property that I own. I will be going out west with this rifle next year and I'm sure a lot more in the future. Hopefully sometime in the next 35 years I will draw a bighorn sheep tag in Montana. All kidding aside I am looking for a scope that pulls double duty at both short and long ranges, something like a 3-18x50 or larger. I am partial to ballistic reticles because they are very fast to put on target. This is very important in South Carolina because we look down narrow roads and pine plantations. I currently shoot a swarovski 5-25x52, but I have been hearing a lot of good things about Nightforce. In addition I have shot a lot of Leupolds and have never been let down. I was hoping to get some feedback from anyone who has a scope that will meet these needs and what they think of it.
