In that case, get a Nightforce.

That's where I'd look with that kind of budget.

I don't think that's a dial scope. You'll probably want to dial if you're planning to shoot long. I like Nightforce or the Vortex Gen2 Razor.

Tangent Theta
S&B
Vortex Gen 2 Razor

In order of decreasing price.

I'd avoid Swaro if your goal is to shoot distance.

Why no Kahles? I have heard good things about them. I hope they are true because I plan on ordering one in a couple weeks.

I would do Atacr over vortex due to weight of vortex

Khales should be on the list

Zco is a new one that looks good


4-16 Atacr is tested and good. At low 2 that gives money for ammo, bipod, training etc

I'm a huge Nightforce fan and have 6 of them, so I gotta lead first with them. The NXS series or the newer ATACR are great scopes. The S&B scopes are great. I know several shooters sponsored by Kahles, and I have used there scopes a few times and liked them. I'm not a US Optics fan. The Swaro hunting model scopes I would not use for dialing, as I have broken 2 of them. Their new tactical line I'm not sure of.

I'm a long time NF fan, they are great but have moved away from them since trying Steiner and using a buddy's IOR Valada (don't recall model). the Steiners mx5i and tx5i are really impressive as is the IOR. Especially the mx5i! I also really like the leupy mark 6 with TMR 3-18, but feel it's overpriced. Been behind and used top tier razors and thought they were competitive in that price point. Also don't discount S&B PM scopes they are very nice, but my eyes can't justify the price tag compared to a used in great condition Steiner tx5i. Heard great things about tangent theta.

Just remember Glass is so subject. you need to go out and get behind em for yourself. For example, one of the very best FFP bangs for your buck is the weaver tactical with emdr reticle. I have two and they are usually on sale at Natchez for $599 but everywhere else 1100-1200. They remind me so much of the NF SHV FFP (imo better) and bushnell lrs/elr glass it's not even funny at half the price, plus built like a sledge hammer.
