I've had Swarovski's, Kahles and Zeiss Victory's in the past and honestly never seen the need for them for deer hunting. Guess what, last season in Comanche a very good buck walked out of the woods around 6:05 pm and I couldn't get see him well enough in my Elite 6500 scope for a clean shot. Arghhhh....

Money is much tighter now so what in your opinion is the brightest scope for 1000.00 or less? Going on a T3 Lite 7mm-08 with max shots less than 250 yds. Most shots 100-150. Thanks guys.

I looked through a VX-6 at SWFA last year and it had an amazing FOV but storelight isn't twilight.

Take a look at the Vortex Razor LH. I have one (3-15x) and it will go toe-to-toe with my Swaro SLC (10s) binoculars in low light conditions. I have successfully taken hogs in TX and predators in AZ up to 25 minutes after sunset (according to my iPhone). Another benefit is that it is very lightweight.

Thats what I've been trying to tell everyone. Razor LH is the best glass I own. You paying attention, Buzz?

For $1000 and it barely squeaks in. Z-3 4-12 x 50 with the bold duplex is up there with the best of less than $1000. For that price it is my pick.

Meopta 3-12x56 is an incredible low light scope and they got the illumination right...
just a small dot that can be set very dim

I recently bought a rifle that came with a swarovski z3. Haven't hunted with it yet, but the glass is excellent....on par with the new vx-6. For the $$, I'd go with the leupold, if just looking for a great scope. American made and Leupold is easy to work with, if something happens to it.

Thank you for the suggestions. As usual, a lot to research. Ccoker, I'm thinking 2.5x10 or 3x12 probably.

I have a z3 3-10x42 and the Vortex Razor HD LH 3-15x42 and love them both, especially in low light. Added bonus for me is that they are pretty lightweight.
