So the burris 4.5-14x42 I have is pretty weak in the internal adjustment range...about 36 Moa... even with burris signiture rings and .010 inserts I only have 26 moa of up adjustment...I do like the scope, and think it would work great on the 25-06.
I do not have the money for a new scope at the moment, but like to plan ahead, just wondering if there is a good scope for under $400.00 in the same magnification range with around 80 moa.....
mostly for paper, but probably hunting too.  Around a 42mm objective, but am open to 50mm if I can achieve the 80 moa... Basically I know there are allot of decent scopes in my price range, I just don't know there internal adjustment ranges.
This is going on my Win Mod70 in 7mm Rem Mag.
Mill dot would be preferable, and I do understand I might need a 20 moa base, and possibly a 50 moa scope...just trying to make it work with the least amount of money possible.

An S.S. 10x42 has about 120 M.O.A. of internal adjustment for $300. The3-9x42 S.S. is only $600, is a first focal plane reticle and has mil adjustments that match the reticle. Both are great scopes. I know they are not exactly what you asked for, but both have tons of adjustment.

I would love to have the SS 10 power, but I will probably use this for elk hunting so shots could be fairly close and in the brush....can't afford the 3-9 yet, but if I can swing it when the time comes, I think it would be worth giving up the extra magnification for...Thanks BB.

I forgot the 6x 42! That would solve the close shot thing, and the internals are the same as the original 10x. I don't know how far your planning on punching paper, but I think it is worth mentioning.

The Super Sniper 6x42 should do what you are wanting with about 120 moa of internal adjustment. Also any 30 mm tube Leupold 4.5-14 should have 100 moa of internal adjustment and could be ordered with several styles of knobs from the custom shop but  it is probably double your price range.  Another scope that has lots of internal adjustment is the Sightron SIII series of scopes.   Leupold also makes a FX3  6x42 with target knobs in a one inch tube that has 64 moa of internal adjustment.   I have the 6x Super Sniper and a FX3 6x42 heavy duplex and I like both of them.

Thanks for the input guys...don't think I could handle a 6 power again...after my Leopold MX8...I think I would rather have the S.S 3-9 than a Leupold 4.5-14...mostly cause by the time I put knobs on it, it would probly be $300 more for the Leupold...guess I'll just have to make due till I can save enough for the S.S.  ...so much to do to these guns and so little time and money lol.
