New to the post and could use some advice of course.  I have a .300 WBY Mark V Lazermark and want to upgrade the scope to a variable power.  I have been looking at 50mm objectives with high powers, 8-24x variable.  I moose hunt in Canada and reach out to 500+ meters...  but I have a 16 inch square vital area.  So looking for that longer shot with a better chance of putting the bullet where it counts.  That and doing some bench rest / varmit stuff in the off season to see how far I can reach out. My current scope is 1.5 - 6 x 40 B&L Elite 3000.


Price up to $1500 +/-

Welcome to The OT!!!


This is my choice for a big game rig, in your price range. 12x power is enough to get you out to 500 meters for a kill shot.


I went with the L7 reticle, you may opt for another if your considering a "do all" scope for big game, BR and varmint.

The L7 worked well for me.


I would advise trying to stay with a 50mm objective or less too.

When you jump into this level of quality glass/coatings, a 56mm objective just don't matter. IMO. _davari_vm_v_rifle_scope.htm


This scope rocks too!! It gives you little more power and is a little lighter.
