I have bought a Savage 11/111 Long Range Hunter in 6.5 x .284 caliber for mostly bench shooting but maybe a little deer hunting from a shooting house. I am debating which scope to put on the gun. I have a range that will allow me to shoot 800 yds, but  I would be happy with success at 600 yds. 

I am thinking about a Leopold Mark 4 LR/T in 6.5 x 20 x 50mm. The scope is about $1250.00 with the TMR retical that I want. Would any of you have a better suggestion or a different way that I should look at this purchase since it will be an expensive purchase? I want to make the best decision I can. I might would spend a little more, but I dont want to move into the $2000.00 area.

Thanks, but I am, now more than ever, inclined to believe you need to buy the best you can afford, because the quality of most everything is so poor these days. It will be a lifetime purchase so I don't mind spending a little money, but I don't want to just throw money away either. That is why I think for something less than $2000.00 I can maximize my purchase without wasting money.
