looking for a scope

Burris, Leupold, Bushnell and Nikon all make good 2-7x and 3-9x scopes well within your price range. The Leupold and the Nikon are guarenteed for life. I have 2 Nikon's, both guarenteed for life no matter who owns the scope, sell it the warenty goes with it. At one time a had a 2-7x Leupold on a 338 Mag. Did a fine job.

Leupold and Nikon both make what your looking for in your price range. Why are you looking for so much scope?

looking for a scope

I have Leupold VX3 BC4.5X14X40mmLR with 30mm tubes on my 300WSM & 7mm Rem Mag , They work great in low light conditions with the 30mm tube and you can use lower scope mounts getting away from the 50mm lense. But they are a little pricey at $550, But i'm happy with their performance and i'm not afraid to strech my barrel and take a shot out to 500 yards. Good luck, thier are many nice scopes to choose from.

I have a Nikon with BDC and I only have it because that's all they bhad when I got it. I don't even like the idea of them. I'm not sure what load they are programed to or what cartridge. I did contact Nikon to see about getting it changed to a plain cross wire but they won't do it, Leupold would have!

For long range shooting the best answer is a cronograph to know your true velocity and plot your true trajectory and a good range finder to tell what the range really is.
