Have around $400-$500 to spend. Leaning toward this one, also considering Leupold SX1 Ventana. Primarily bench use out to 300. Whatever I get needs to be available on Amazon as I have gift cards in hand.

Thanks.

Try to find a viper hd, it’s twice the scope for just a touch more. You can find a viper for that much if you have time


Donate to TX Youth hunting program.... better to donate then to waste it in taxes

Thanks BOBO. Good advice. Viper 15-45x65 shows $649. I can be patient and save a little money.

I have a 20-60 Ventana and think it’s pretty good. Talk to Cameraland and see if they have a demo. It’s been three years but I got one for half what you’d pay new.

Athlon Ares 15-45 x 65 ED is excellent.

Yes, absolutely talk to Doug at Cameraland in New York. You'll have a hard time beating their number.
