Ladies and Gentleman,
Hello, I am new here. Despite what my screen name suggests (I keep it for the sake of simplicity across several boards) I am an avid rifleman.
Anyway, I have a Remington 700 7mm-08 with Nikon Buckmaster 3-9x40mm scope (the older model) that is my general purpose big game rifle. I would like to upgrade the scope to something a bit higher quality, that can give me a bit more clarity and light transmission to squeeze those last few moments out of legal shooting light.
I am currently looking at the Leupold FXIII 6x42, VXIII 2.5-8x36, Zeiss Conquest 2.5-8x32, Nikon Monarch Gold 30mm 1.5-6x42mm, and others.
I need to keep it under $650, under $500 is preferable.
So what do y'all suggest?
