    WTB - Optically Good Target Style Scope

    Hello - I'm looking for a good quality variable scope for target work with a budget of up to $1500 (the price of my benchmark - a Sightron S3 6-24x50) so if you have something that is used but optically flawless with better glass than that I'd be interested.

    It needs to have:
    about 5 or 8 at low power
    at least 20 at high power
    at least 50 objective
    Adjustable focus (either side or AO)
    Second focal plane reticule
    Target turrets with an reputation for perfect tracking
    minimum 15 moa of elevation
    30mm or less tube

    It doesn't have to have:
    good cosmetics/exterior
    zero stop
    side focus
    any particular reticule (I can live with lots of different configurations)

    So if you're thinking of an upgrade yourself here's an opportunity to trade off your old scope.

    Is it to replace your sightron? For target shooting like ftr?

    For the money they are very hard to beat if just target shooting during daylight hours.

    Yeah - nice, I did look at it but you can't split it up while its on TM and we'd both be embarrassed by my offer for the whole shebang

    I don't have the Sightron, I will buy one I think if I can't scare something "better" up secondhand. And yes, FTR

    I have had a couple in the past and really like them, use to use them for ftr and steel shooting and as you have probably already noticed they are quite popular amongst that group for being clear and repeatable.
