    New scope? Too many choices

    Well Iím looking at a new rifle, so now to dial in a scope, so hereís my wants, to be more than 4 x16, say 6x24 or a little less, be damn right bulletproof, and say between 1000 - 1500 or so, i was looking at the night force SHV but some nikons have excellent ratings, Leopolds are great too? So the delemia
    I like drinking beer and whiskey, shooting guns, jetboating, love a nice rack and a tight line, I am simply a sophisticated redneck...

    Zeiss V4 4-16x44 or 6-24x50 Zplex reticle with zero stop dial

    Swing by on your way to the range and take one of my rifles with the Zeiss scope and see for yourself,

    Lots of good scopes, Leupold VX5HD 3-15x44 and VX6HD 3-18x44 are also great scopes

    I like the lockable turret on the vx-5 and the red dot, just ordered another from Great North Precision today, best price I could find in Canada.

    I just bought a zeiss Z4 in the 6-24. The lupy 3-15 with cds was a contender but I wanted to try the higher magnification. I can get a custom dial for the zeiss as well.

    For my eyes that is the best scope I could find, for that money. The zeiss scopes come in third or fourth to my liking. The dot is a huge bonus to me.

    40 years of beating the hell out of Leupold in the mountains, boats, planes. I know there’s good scopes out there.
    I could never change based on my experiences and similar reports from hunters everywhere. Good luck! It’s gotten confusing. Go with your gut.
