lens and coating technology on scopes has come a long way in the last several years. what you can get now compares to scopes costing twice as much several years ago, and will suit the needs of most shooters and hunters. with the exception of very long distance precision target shooters, most us will be able to suffice with a quality scope in the $300-500 range, for most of our shooting needs.

Where the really expensive scopes shine is when there is little light available.


And post some pics for us, we like pics

One thing i see thats seems off to me. Maybe optical illusion. My scope seems like its not aligned with rifle. Seems crooked to me. Anyone know why?

Are you mounts straight? Maybe remove the mounts and carefully screw them back down, each screw at a time in turns until they are torqued down to specs.

To me it seems like the way i see it that the bases r not straight. They have no play in them. This is my first scope setup

Casper,
Most has already been said! I have several different brands of scopes. But the bottom line for the money a guy can't beat NIKON! I have a few of them also and would with out reluctance buy another one if needed! You can't go Wrong! The only imorvement a guy could make to any scope is to go with a 30MM Tube. Once you use one you are spoiled!
