    for 800.

    have a look at second hand swaros. depending on how far you want to shoot would make the magnification an issue you need to pay more attention too.

    For 800 take a very good scope in second hand, if I am you I would watch S&B, Swaro and Zeiss old top series

    Or if you want a new scope with good warranty go for a vortex PST or a sighton both of them are very good

    You should be able to pick up a slightly older Swarovski Habicht 4-12x50 for 5-600 or even less and it will do all you need. Not sure though if you add twiddly turrets for longer range dialling in.

    Vortex as mentioned above.
    Is there a time and place for spontaneity?

    I own a Swaro Z6 2-12-50 and the conquest DL in 3-13-50. To my eyes the conquest is far better optically

    Hi Tricky, if your going to be shooting 500 yds target, you might want more than a 12x, i thing the sportsman gun center is still knocking out a Nikon Morach 3, 6x 24 discounted to about 400, Ive two of them and for the money excellent, with good mounts they make the rifle better than me. Or go s/h for good european good luck
