I'm currently looking for a scope to go on my next rig. The rifle will most likely be a 10-12lbs .338 RUM, most likely in a tactical configuration. Now what I need is a scope. The rifle will be used from anywhere from 50yards on out to 500yards. Variable power is a must. Structural Integrity is a must (with possible recoil). My price range is 500-750 dollars. Thanks, and fire away.

Take a good look at the shepherd 6x18 pwr ballistic,s scope for that rifle. I put one on a 300 ultra mag and love it. Cost is 700.00

I'll second the IOR's. I have a 2.5-10 on a 8.5 lb scoped .300 Jarrett. Seems to handle recoil just fine. I've also had their 4.5-14 and currently have a 6-24 mounted on a 22-250. Excellent and tough scopes IMO.

I have a IOR on my 300 RUM and it works great. if you are only shooting to 500, get the varitable.

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

Nightforce ATACR Scope Review

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More


The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
