    I Just Gave You $5000.00

    I'm posing the question like this as I believe it will provide for more objective, experience based, answers.

    IE: You're telling me what scope would be best for you, rather than telling me what scope you think would be best for me.

    ----------------------------------------

    I just gave you $5000.00, and you're going to buy the scope that you believe would be the absolute best for your shooting situation(s).

    No NV scopes, and you gotta be able to mount the scope on the gun.

    So if you wouldn't mind, please tell me:

    1. Which scope you would buy.
    2. Why you would buy that scope.
    3. What type of shooting do you do: bench, critter, target, steel, mil, 0-300, 300-1K, etc.

    Obviously, any other info you care to add is appreciated.

    -----------------------------------------

    Yes, I'm buying a bolt gun.

    But this isn't about me; it's about what you think is the best scope for your particular shooting situation(s).

    Thanks.

    I'll have to agree. I have nothing but magnified Leupold glass. One 1.5 x 5 Mk4 and two 3.5 x 10 Vx IIIs. Clear glass and holds zero. Don't have any experence with the 1 x 8. Wish I could afford it.

    “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”Thomas Jefferson, quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria in “On Crimes and Punishment”, 1764
