Did you consider the Sightron SIII Long Range 6-24x50 Zero Stop - Mil-Dot #25167 which is made in Japan and an excellent option in this price range?

Are you talking about the Bushnell Elite or the Engage? The Engage and non-tactical Elite go for less than $350 on GrabAGun.

The Elite Tactical is pricey ($1,200). In that range, there are LOTS and LOTS of options. For target shooting, I personally hate the SFP.

Bushnell makes a good scope (Engage/Elite) in the $250-$350 range.

A word on the Engage. The cross hairs are exceptionally fine. You may find your rounds wander against a dark target - because you can't see the tree.

after reading the reviews on grabagun, I wouldn't buy a stick horse from them. please read original post, the " three" that I am interested in. also there are many models on any brand of scope, thats what you have to compare.

I had a littl sig 3-9 that I picked up on close out. I was impressed for the price

The luppy HD3 4.5 -14 30 mm is nice little scope, not sure how well tracking will hold long term as it just hit market

My buddy just picked up the Elite 3.5-21 from Doug when it was on sale. I haven’t shot with it yet but it’s a very well made scope and the glass is pretty good or very good at that price range. My question is where are you finding still on sale at that price?

All Elites are not created equal, do you know which model you’re looking at? The older 6500 s are not in the same class as the newer scopes.

When you say “w/ wind drift” are you talking about the reticle? You’ll need a Mil or MOA reticle on whatever you choose if you want to be competitive.

None of these scopes are fit for 22 competition due to none of them will parallax down to 15-25 yards.
You won’t be able to see the cross hairs under 75 yards.

If your truly looking for something for NRL 22 or the match that senior puts on you need something that will parallax adjustable to 25 yards minimum if you can find something that will do 10-11 yards even better.

If you buy any of what you have listed you’ll be rebuying soon.
