I your opinion what scope gives the best comprimise for both hunting and target shooting?
 
Lets say we want:
 
* ca 600-700$ to spend
* fine duplex/fine crosshairs
* target turrets 
* something that performs brilliantly in low light (mucho importanto)Bandito

Hey Lucy.

Do they hold well up to abuse too ? (in case I take my gun on my MX bike).  What about the Leupolds - are they good?

Leupold and Bushnell are both very tough

243 caliber.  I plan on using it on the target range and for hunting. I like the fine crosshairs because they give me an option to shoot super precise. Im oftern very limited by light so a bright scope is a must (most likely 50mm lense). I think magnification up to ca 18x would be neat. I have a Zeiss huntingscope (that is ACE) but Id like to try a more target oriented scope.
I could be interested in buying a good used scope off Ebay if I get more for my $ that way.

10122 Leupold 6.5-20x50 VX-3 66575, Matte finish, Fine Duplex reticle, Long Range, Target Knobs, Side Focus, xtended twilight lens system, 100% new 2009 demo model, used for current SWFA.com web pictures $1,022.00 $749.95
Quick buy this thing before I do. I have been so close to buying the last several days but I am looking for an illuminated model or the varmit reticle. This scope is very very close to what I want but if I buy it I wont be able to get the illuminated one that I want so tell me how you like it.
