Looking for a scope for my Savage 12 LRP 6.5. Price around $1000 give or take a 100 . I'll be shooting out to 1000-1200.

Burris XTR II 5-25x50
Vortex PST 6-24x50
Sightron S3 6-24x50FFP
SWFA 5-20x50 (non-ill)

Those are your options.  All are good scopes.

I have not tested the Burris yet, so the recommendation is provisional on my part.  With the other three, I somewhat prefer the SWFA SS, but for the most part, pick the reticle you like.

I have run the Sightron and SS, both are great scopes. I prefer the turrets on the SS.

No experience with the Vortex or Burris. If you go 2.5x, the Vortex Gen2 is quite a nice scope.

The rifle is a 6.5x47? Have you taken 800+ yard shots?

6.5 creedmoor and it's brand new. I shot the same gun in .243 at 700. It had a nightforce on it. I been hearing great things about SS for the price. Only negative complain was it didn't have zero stop.
