I have a 308 cal. rem 700 pss and I'm looking for a long range scope, perabally a leupold. What kind of power and options for a distance from 200 yards to 1000 yards and be able to see the target clearly. Also options that would let me put the crosshairs on the target at 200 yards and be able to adjust with lines or ??? in the scope to put cross hairs on a different line to be able to shoot a target of 1000 yards without adjust the windage or elevation on the scope. Can some one recommened a good scope for me? Do not know much about powers of scopes.

Do you have a budget? Check out Cheaptricks exellent post in the tactical section titled practical tactical shooting. I do not recommend anything over 16x or a Leupold.

I agree with SVD666.  Stay away from the Leupolds.  Way over priced.

Also, for that application, you will probably need a 20MOA rail.  I have not read the post that SVD666 gave you, but I would imagine he goes into those details.

Thank you for the lead to forum. I'm going to study article in detail. I brief read some of the article, alot of good information in laymen terms. Thanks again

 

If I can find a good scope I will be willing to pay up to 1000.00, However, would like to spend alot less.

I have heard alot about the quality of Leupolds, What would be a comparable brand name scope?

Here is a far superior scope for less IMO. Team it up with some TPS tactical rings and one piece base and you are in buisness.
