    Quality Scope

    Thought it best to look here and see what's out there before buying new. I've been looking at the Leupold VX-5HD in 3-15x so that's around where the budget is sitting. This is going on a 7mm hunting rifle that I'm setting up for the longer end or the range spectrum. I haven't done a lot of dialing before but have range access and prefer to go down the quality road instead of buying cheap and then upgrading. Already have a set of 30mm rings. Prefer to keep the objective size between 44 -50 mm.

    Open to ideas and options. If there's anything second hand out there worth considering let me know. If not then I'll just buy new.

    Cheers.
