I am thinking about selling my Zeiss Duralyt on the .243 to change to something with more mag, dial-able turrets and illuminated reticle. This would mainly be used for foxing but occasionally stalking and some longer range target practice.
The scopes in my price range (I would probably look to buy used) I have started looking at are the Vortex Viper PST 6-24, the Sightron S3 and the Sightron S-Tac. Priority I suppose is reliable dialling, then low light performance. I did have a Zeiss Conquest 6-20x50 which was great though no illuminated reticle. Also I would prefer a 30mm tube.
