Forgive me if this has already been discussed. I would appreciate input on the best “Long Range” (1,000-1,200 yds.) scope in the 1K price range?
I like ZEISS, www.zeiss.com I have a Victory series, they a bit more than you want to spend, but the ZEISS Conquest V4 4-16 X50 ZMOAi-1 illuminated reticle ,(#93) .25MOA
ext . elevation turret , ballistic stop, Parallax adj (10yds to oo) excellent scope, entry level for ZEISS, $1099.99
That is in ‘around $1000 range’ but a bit more than I will EVER spend… Big smiles!
LOLOL the Victory series low end is up around $3,780.00 mine was bought in 1969, at $2,800 1969 dollars. it goes back every 5 years for a fluff and buff, free, just because…
if your shooting distance, a excellent optic is probably going to cost around double what you paid for the platform your on…
And this is EXACTLY why I never attempted qualification for long range at my former club. To make it certain, I own exactly one rifle that is useful past 200 yards - my Browning BLR in .308 (my spare mag cost me more than most of my glass since it’s Belgian born).
I know me. If I let myself start chasing 0 MOA performance, I’ll be riding a bicycle to the range 'cause proper glass costs like cars and motorcycles. So, I’ve promised to revisit my position as soon as I stumble across a winning powerball ticket. Till then, I can afford glass that sees great at 100 yards for precision rimfire fun.
@GOBLIN … $2,800 in '69 - ouch. I’m just gonna guess you didn’t make Woodstock, NY that summer.
wood stock was cheap. problem with Woodstock, the first one had all the young gals runnin around , well you know
and then tha second one had the same gals only they were not so young gals dancein round in the same state of undress… Gravity was not good to some people…
that scope cost me a 1947 chevy round back i had rebuilt, plus about 4 months pay for unk to front me the money for it.
now i look for used. Both my ACOG’s TA01 s are reconditioned units.
Vortex Viper PST 6-24X50 FFP is being sold here for $599 with the MilRad EBR-2 reticle. An exceptional scope, was formerly $949.00… The reticle is solid gold, IMO.
@Dred Was checking out the new Burris XTRIII series, in 3.3X18X50 and 5.5X30X56 but both of those are over $2000
I would be easier, If we knew what calibre , bullet weight, and platform Cuervo was using, could get a lot more creative on glass, know what i mean?
Goblin, thanks. This is great information and the scope is still within the parameters of the $1K range. I will certainly make note of this scope.
That is a GREAT price.
