So many choices so little money. Need a rifle scope

Recommended Posts

Yes Hey just throwing it out there. I would like to buy my first longe range hunting scope. I will be placing on top of either a hells canyon speed in 300 win mag or a savage high country in 300 win mag. I’d like to shoot out to 1000 yards. The goal is to have an elk rifle that can hunt just about everything else I am looking at three different brands of scopes which I have the opportunity to buy at a significant discount so I’d like to choose between US Optics, Voretex, Burris, or Riton scopes. Was thinking of some in the 5-25 magnification range. I can not afford their top of the line stuff but a retail price of 1200$. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

I would try look at a Sightron SIII or the the Nightforce SHV line.

Anything but Vortex.

 

Check Ebay for slightly used or open box items at a decent discount.

Shv is a solid scope for the money

Out of the four you quoted, US Optics, hands down, will be the highest quality.

I got a demo Zeiss V4 from Redhawk Rifles for about $300 under retail. I really like it.
