I'm looking to buy a new scope with target knobs.  Does anyone have an idea which scopes (variable power for use out to 600 yards) have the best reputation for tracking?  I'll be range finding and shooting various distances with BDC knobs and the scope I have now just isn't cutting it.  Thanks.

WOOPS!  I should have mentioned that I'm looking for scopes in the $500-$700 range.  Thanks.

OK - Variable - Great Tracking- BDC Knobs - Great reputation for $500 to $700.

Leupold does indeed have good tracking, they lack in glass quality.  Zeiss Conquest, at least mine, is also very accurate in tracking.

On what will the scope be going, what caliber?

A little pricey but IMHO Definately the best scope for your application under $1000 Zeiss 4.5-14X44 Conquest with Target Knobs and Mil dot reticle to range.

R.C.,
The scope is going on a .270 WSM.  Berger Bullets has a new 150 VLD that I'm going to try out.
