I am a pathetic target shooter and sure need more practice .

I know the rifle and scope setup is more than capable though because my brother in laws acquaintance shot it and he got sub MOA grouping (on bench).

BTW, even if I invest on a $5,000 scope...I probably won't shoot any better. No remorse buying this scope.

My buddy just bought a 700 with a Nikon 3-9X40 on it. Targets inside 500yards it was good. When we switched to the 800-900 yard targets.........not so good.
If you are looking for quality that will last long Here's a Leupold that is in your price range

Leupold Rifleman Riflescopes 4-12x40mm, Matte, Wide Duplex

I have a Millet 4-16 50mm w adj objective, mil-dot, lighted teticle that is lockable and once zeroed, you can return the turrets to "0" for $299. Downside - it is Big and Heavy. Leupold Rules but to get one w all the above features it will cost you $$$.

Wish I could afford one !

That Leupold is only $247 and more than enough for the gun.

Be careful with the higher zoom scopes, 6x...or 8x... You won't be able to zoom down low enough for a 50 yard shot in the timber, trust me. They are for long range shooting ONLY.

The rifleman is no better then any other 200.00 scope. You pay more for the name in this case. I had a Sightron SI on a BLR. Just as crisp, clear, with better ajustment clicks then a friends Rifleman. Sold the rifle and the new owner kept the scope on it. he was sold also. $125.00 less then the Rifleman. It was a 3-9x32mm.

Default Dang scope-nuts ! You guys twist my mind !

I was all settled in what I would buy, and then I go and check this series. Now I have to start all over again. Let me ask, then, opinions on the best lighted-reticle scope, ##x##x50mm, because I have bad eyes, to go on my T/C Encore .204 Ruger, 26-in. bull-barrel. I am told that the gun is a 1000 yd gun, and at any rate, much better than I am. Also any suggestions on a std reticle, for that range, staying w/ 50mm for the light-gathering ability. Thanks. SMAR

204 as a 1000 yard gun haaaa got me crackin there better get a 30 mm tube scope and a 6x24x50 or so nightforce or swaro becouse a 1000 yards is no place for a 100$ to 300$ scope. Better plan on high quality rings an bases also
