I'm pretty interested in the Millett 4-16 .1mil adj mil dot scope. I'm wanting to put it on my 7mm savage and shoot up to 1000 yards. I've lately been wanting to learn to shoot longer distances for fun. I'd also like to hunt deer with it if I want. I'm wanting to spend up to about $300. Since good deals will be out next week I figure if ask on here.

What do y'all think of that scope? What other scope do y'all recommend for long range shooting in my price range?

I had one a few years back, the scope was ok and tracked well but was real heavy. If you would like a couple of better options try the Primary Arms 4 x 14 x 44 mill/mill FFP
Primary Arms
Or better yet the SWFA 3 x 15 x 42 also mill/mill FFP, little more than your budget but for you trying to go 1000 yards, your better option. Watch for their black Friday specials coming up you mage get a better deal on pricing.

I just ordered an Athlon Argos BTR.

Check out those and the Athlon line, great price for FFP scopes.

Those things are tough to get to go together.

One of the most important things is properly tracking turrets. The Millet might do it, but you'd be wise to test it, at 100, before attempting a long shot with it.

Thanks for the suggestions. The Primary Arms seems nice. I'll read more about it. The SWFA is too pricy.

I'm also wanting a lifetime warranty. That way if they don't track well I can get it fixed. I've researched a lot about the Millett and read mostly good things.

Any other suggestions? Anyone have any of these?

I want to know as much as I can for BlackFriday deals.

I would wait until I had more money or look for a used vortex pst

I got a millet when I first wanted a nicer scope. It did not work with a damn

If you want that price point I would look at the Leopold mark ar

Swfa Black Friday is usually 20-30ish% off so that should bring them closer to your price point

Vortex Viper HS-T can be had for around $400 if you hunt around and don't mind used.

I get your point wanting a lifetime warranty. Vortex made the whole market better for us, in that many manufacturers had to follow suit and offer a lifetime warranty.

However, it will be very frustrating if your scope does not track properly, frequently, and frequently it gets sent back to the manufacturer. A good portion of the cost of long range capable scopes is true and reliable tracking.

You may find closer to what your looking for in one of the fixed power SS scopes.

I don't know much about fixed power scopes.


The swfa ss seems nice. It has great reviews, holds up to big recoil, but does it track well? Any info on it y'all want to share?

It has a reputation built on tracking well.

Years ago inhad a millet TRS. That thing was probably the biggest POS ive ever owned. Weighed a ton and wouldnt track for its life. We back to millet 5xs and woukd track for 3-4 outings and be off over an inch. Went to mueller and it tracked better but the glass was garbage, but they were all i could afford at the time. I have since moved on to SWFA SS, vortex, nightforce and S&B. If i offered any advise if yiu on a budget is to save a little longer and get the SWFA SS or find a good used vortex. Ask for an SWFA gift card for xmas if nothing else.
