Never knew there was so many options for optics till i started reading all these threads. I just thought Leupold was one of the highest and Nightforce was the best... how little I knew! My top choice would still be a NF NXS 3.5-15x50 but I dont have $1500 for a scope. I basically want a variable power ending around 14-16x and has a mil dot reticle and reliable adjustable turrets. Of course having good glass is important too. I thought Leupold Mark4 but I dont have a $grand either. the Trijicon accupoint TR23 5-20x50 i can get around $900, which is getting closer to my price range. I wish they had a variable range 5-16 or so that would be a little cheaper. I could do 7-800 and not feel to bad about it but less would be good. Is it possible to get a Leupold VX-3 with the range I want and have the mildot reticle and adjustable turrets added on? Im new to this world of optics. I dont want any 200-300 price range crap scopes. This would be for hunting and long range plinkn. Any suggestions? Thanks.
