I bought a new rifle so it is scope time again. As I have been looking over scopes, I have realized that there are a lot of so called tactical scopes on the market. This brings up the question, what does it take to be called a tactical scope. If it has a mil-dot reticle is it a tactical scope? How about tactical turrets? On the other end, does the scope have to cost $1000.00 to be a real tactical scope. So please help me pic a new scope. What the scope will be used for is target shooting out to 1000 yards and hunting long range if need be. What I need is great mechanics, and variable power. Quality of glass is important but a lot of cheaper scopes have great glass now a days. I would like a 30mm tube for the extra adjustment, but the main importance is mechanics. This scope will be put on to a budget rifle build so I am looking for the best bang for the buck, not top of the line. Any suggestions?
