Hey

I am wanting to shoot long range (up to 600 yards) and i need advice on what scope to get.  I am shooting a remington 700 30-06. What are some of the easiest reticals to use? I would like a good mildot scope but i hear they are pretty hard to use. I am wanting to spend $600-$800 dollars.

Elite 4200 would be good. The 2.5-10X40 or 50 depending on your taste and needs. mildots are really not that hard to use. just takes a little familiarity with them and the round that you plan to use. Get a Mildot Master from this sites sponsor, SWFA. There is also the Nikon Team Primos with the BDC which is a holdover reticle for distances out that far. Depending on zero ofcourse. Just get a scope that has good to very good glass and a reticle that you would be or can get comfortable with, and spend a few dollars at the range getting acquainted with your setup.

its gonna be hard to get better for your money than this scope.  The multizero allows you to have multiple "zero" settings.  So you could set for 200, 300, 400, 500 & 600.  It does have a 50mm objective bell, but I think you can work around that.

8630 Kahles 3-10x50 Helia CL Multizero 51723, Matte finish, 1" tube, plex reticle, side focus, fast focus eye piece, allows you to zero your scope at five different ranges, close to new condition. $1,315.00 $749.95

long range is way past 600 yds, if 600 is the ave. you don't need mil-dot ,  with a 06 and regular reticle , and 300 sight in, you'd be almost on, every time, i'd get a 4.5x14 conquest with and Z 800 reticle.

dont be scared to buy a mil dot or even a mtr. they may seem to be complicated but after you play with them for a while it will seem strange to shoot without them. they should come with a instruction paper to explain different ways to use them.

Is your rifle set up as a tactical rifle or for hunting.Anyway get a 4-14 power scope I have a Zeiss 4-14x44 on a 700 BDL and have no problem taking a long shot at deer size targets at over 400 yards.
