    Scope

    Looking for a new mid to long range scope. Upgrading from an elite 6500 2.5- 16. Prefer exposed turrets and not too fussed on a zero stop. It's for a 7mm rem mag. Will look at zeiss, leupold and vortex etc. Have around 1k to spend

    Hmm Vortex probably not an upgrade on the Bushnell 6500 to my eyes. Zeiss HD5 probably your best option for $1k budget.

    “The Claw” has a 5-25 Zeiss HD5 for sale on here that might suit you.
    I laugh a the lor and pride of man, at the sophist schools and learned clan. For what are they all in high conceit, when man in the bush with god may meet?

    Do it. Best bang for buck scope on the market I reckon. I'll be buying another.

    I think that's why there's none for sale second hand! That paired with the lifetime warranty is certainly hard to say no to.

    Taihape sports. Normally the best price I can find. Havnt used them for a while but I suspect it's still the same.
