Thread: 1000 budget for scope suggestion please

  1. #1

    1000 budget for scope suggestion please

    Looking for a scope to go on a 223 and i've got 1000 to play with.

    Would like either ballistic turrets or target turrets and not too heavy. Going to be used for vermin and a bit of target out to 400m.

    Any suggestions or recommendation would be appreciated.

    Look on this site and give them a call ...great to deal with. They have some good pre used stock/ex demo/end of line

    Go to classifieds and buy the nightforce 56 mm scope that's for sale.

    As has been suggested, give a bell, excellent service, and back up if you need it.

    Got to be in it to win it!!!!

    Good Luck

    Position and hold must be firm enough to support the firearm
    The firearm must point naturally at the target without any undue physical effort
    Sight alignment (aiming) must be correct
    The shot must be released and followed through without disturbing the position

    Ive used opticswarehouse a few times and have had some great deals and fantastic customer service. I bought a Bushnell elite 4200 6-24x50 with side parallax and target turrets and mildot reticule all for less than 500. I have to say that im very impressed with the scope. It also comes with a sunshade.

    I also think leupolds are good value for money. A S/H S&B, Zeiss or nightforce could be with way to go too..

    MacLeod has a few Z6's, 2-12x50 TDS Plex, discounted at 975, I would buy one and have Ballistic turrets retro fitted if you feel you need them.

    In fact, I might just do that myself.....

    Just because you are paranoid, doesn't mean they aren't out to get you......

    You should pick up a secondhand Nightforce NXS for 1000 or another option, and a cheaper one, would be a Leupold VXIII, you should get one of those for around 600. I have had both, still have the NXS and love it.

    Read up the comparisons Nightforce V's European optics !

    Leoupold ? Don't bother ! Good scopes BUT not compaired to the Euro glass.

    S&B PM2 s/h fits your bill exactly

    If it was me i would have a swarovski not that they are better than the S&B it is just my preference.

    I was given a Nightforce i would sell it asap.
