I am looking for a scope for my rem 700 in 300 win mag.  I had a sightron sII big sky 3-12x42 which I really liked but had to move to a 338 win mag for hunting in Alaska so now I need a new scope for my rem 700.  I want to upgrade to an even better scope.  It will be used for hunting for ranges 0(almost literally) to 500 yds so the low end magnification can't be too high.  I would like to keep the cost under $1200 although I am wavering at times.  I will be hiking long distances with it so I don't want a heavy scope.

These are the 2 which make me waver on price.  Which is prefered BT or BRX reticle

Again, hunting turret vs Rapid Z reticle

Here is one on the samplelist.  I would much prefer the target turret with the IBS reticle but those disappear off the samplelist as soon as the get posted.

After much research, I ended up buying the Zeiss Conquest HD 3-15x50 with the target turret.  I got a deal I could not resist on an open box scope.
