Budget long range scope

Post by Noobie » Wed Jan 03, 2018 4:11 am

Hey guys, I'm looking to purchase a new scope for my long range gun(rem 700 LR 300 win mag). I'm looking to spend somewhere in the $300-$400 range. Could anyone point me in the direction of a scope to get me out to 1000 yards?

Keep an eye out on here, there are some really good deals on some gently used optics. Your dollar will go farther on one of these and remember that companies like Leupold, Vortex, Sig Sauer have no questions asked lifetime warranties

A friend of mine has one of these: http://www.primaryarms.com/primary-arms ... pa4-14xffp

He uses it on a Tikka 6.5 Creedmoor for shooting at 1,000 yards. That scope performs WAY above its price point.

+1 on the Primary Arms.

I have these mounted on Savage and Howa .308s. I joined the "1,000-yard club" with this scope. Can't beat them for price. Get the Strelok Pro ballistics app.

+1 on this scope and it fits your budget. I have the HST version of this exact scope and it’s a great optic. I believe the only difference between this model and the HST is the windage turret on the T is an external adjustment and it is capped on the model in the link. At 350.00 it’s about half the price of a HST. The Post Falls store shows out of stock but you may be able to order one in via the website.

As far as the capped windage turret is concerned, I find mostly I adjust for elevation and hold for windage so that wouldn’t be an issue for me. However, I’m only shooting out to 600 yards, not 1000.

I have that same Viper on a 22-250 and love it. At 350 I should grab another!
