Looking to replace my scope on my 30-06. Any recommendations for a decent scope that won't break the bank. Looking for something that will give good clarity out to 300-400 yards plus. Thanks
Vortex makes some good ones. Look for the ones made in the Philippines. They are a little more spendy, but have clearer glass than the Chicom Vortex.
I'm currently running a Vortex Crossfire II 4-12x40 on my Thomson Compass. The BDC is dead on at longer ranges, and the parallax adjustment helps. The turrets can be reset to zero after dialing it in. I picked mine up when Cabelas had them on sale for $169. They run around $189-$199 regular price.
Liking the Mueller 8.5-25x44 AO tactical scope and the apv 6-18x44 AO. Now witch one? Thinking the 8.5-25 x44 will have issues at max magnification.Do a search and check out the reviews for the Meuller APV scopes. There are 4 or 5 models in the APV line and you can get them for under $150.00. Available in black or silver with aluminum screw on lense covers and their customer service is spot on!
I can afford just about any scope I want and I have been using and recommending Mueller rifle scopes for years.
You will not go wrong buying a Meopta scope. For the distances you think you might shoot to I would recommend the Optika6 3-16x50 Z-Plus (MOA reticle and adjustments).I have one and love it. I have taken mine to 725 yards on multiple occasions. I used it to take a great deer last deer season as well. Excellent in low light for hunting use. Meopta willnot let you down, the Optika6 has a lot of top notch features for a fair price. The 30mm tube and 50mm objective will not let you down. I have the 4.5-27 and 5-30x56 with a 34mm tube for longrange shooting. There is a new Optika5 coming out that is 5X zoom and 1 inch tube that is geared towards the hunting market but for your 30-06, the Optika6 will get the job done.I've read about Meopta, sound like high end scopes for medium pricing. I particularly like that sort of thing. The article I read said they build high end scopes for other people, but it said they were Czech. I'd thought my Weatherby might be a Meopta, but it's made in Japan, so guess not.
