New member here.  I have $500.00 to spend on a new hunting rifle scope.  What is the best scope you guys would recommend for this price range.

I'd probably get a Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 . I would have told you 2 weeks ago to get a #4 on it but after looking through one ..........I'd probably use a different reticule like a plex . Since it's a 2nd plane reticule ........it seemed very fat to me on that size scope. He also had a 3-9x50 with the #4 and it seemed big on it but not quite as obtrusive to me.

I just got a Conquest 4.5-14x44 with the ZRF reticule and it's pretty sweet. Can't wait to get a rifle and set it all up !! I am very surprised in low light how well it stacks up to my high end scopes !!

..................Go the Conquest! If you wish to keep additional money in your pocket after the purchase, get the 3x9 Elite 4200. The 4200 has shorter eye relief, but I did use one on a .375 Ruger Alaskan with no scars to show for it.........A wee bit more kick than a 7mm mag.
