Hello,
I was looking for some input from you guys for a scope for my 308 Howa.
Application: Target shooting. The range I mostly will be using this at is 100 - 300 yards; however, I would like to have the capacity to shoot up to 1000 yards once in a while. I will consider any type of reticle but I do prefer mil-dot.
 
Price range: around $500;  
I can stretch a tad if something is really worth the cost over other but would like to keep it reasonably close to this mark.
 
I had a couple of choices lined-up but then got tied up and forgot the other two over time Whacko.
 
The only one I remember from my list is this:
 
 
 
Thanks!

Urimaginaryfrnd,

Thanks for the ideas.
 
I know that people have usually very positive experience with SWFA 16x42 scopes but I was hoping to get something with adjustable zoom if possible (forgot to specify that), anything like that around $500 that you can recommend?
 
Like I said I can stretch some if needed (~$100). Or at least give me an idea what price range I can expect.
 
Another question, are Talley rings worth the price? Or I can just use Aadland, Seekins or maybe TPS and save some $? (still cannot get over how much these things cost)
 
Once I am decided on these 2 things I should be ready to go with rest of the stuff you suggested.
 
Thank you in advance!

I have a SS 16x on my Remington 5R and couldnt be happier with it. But I am looking to order the TPS rings and bases. I have a redfield rail and tactical rings they are ok in a pinch but I want a more secure set. Btw I only have access out to 300 yds. Perfect setup.

 This is the one I would recommend. First focal plane, reticle matches the adjustments, and the glass is damn good for its cost!
