Looking for advice on new scope for my Savage 111 30.06. I would like to use it for deer hunting, varmit, and targets out to 600 yards. I reload so I like like to take advantage of the wide range of bullets and loads offer for the 30.06.  Like my title says $750 to 800 budget. Maybe able to go a little higher if you think one is really worth the extra $.  Thanks for your help.

Yes, the Swaro would be an excellent choice.

i'd look at the new, which means not quite out yet, Viper PST line. they have a 4-16 which would be a great scope and in the range you're talking.

Find a Kahles CL 4-12x52 with MultiZero...  It may take some searching, but well worth it.

Thanks to all for advice. I narrowed my choices down to these two. I do like the rapid Z600 on the Zeiss but I can't help but wonder is the glass on the Swarovski better than the Zeiss. Also wondering about the Swarovski being graded as a Demo B on the sample list. Anybody bought from the sample list and would it still be covered under Swarovski lifetime warranty.
