    Decent scope 4-16x(or similar)

    Looking for a good scope in the 4-16x area for a bit of hunting and distance shooting. It's to go on a Bergara B14 Hunter in 308. Budget is about $700, but can go a bit higher for the right piece of kit. Really keen on exposed turrets, hoping for locking, but quality glass is the most important thing.

    Cheers

    The (relatively) new Bushnell Engage 4-16x44 has had some really good reviews and retails in the $700 - $800 range. Gonna be my next puchase, along with a new rifle to stick it on.
    I used to have a handle on Life - but it broke.

    Sorry that should be locking exposed turrets, as you say Turner, I imagine they would be a pain in the arse.

    Have had a look at the bushnell engage and they look bloody marvelous. Has anyone used one before?

    Thank you Echo, Longrange308, and Turner NZ not quite what I'm looking for.
