    Good Cheap Scope

    Just wandering what good cheapish long range type scopes available out there, with an externally adjustable elevation turret? Any recommendations? Thanks

    That'd be good buying and meets your rough brief.

    Vx3 4.5-14 cds (25mm or 30mm side focus) or swaro Z3 4-12 with ballistic turret should do the business without going too spendy

    Disagree they often come up for around 1200 or less.

    I've seen two on trade me in last month go for less than 1k.
    People have a misconception that Swarovski is hell expensive,
    A Z5 is now less $ than a Vx6
    A Z3 is now the same as a vortex pst
    The Swaro has the advantage that you can actually see through the glass.

    I have seen plenty of Z3's go for around 12-1400, new, or close enough to it..

    I was referring to the "cheap"... as in quality.

    OP needs to define his budget because my definition of cheap and the numbers that are coming up in postings do not gel.
    "Good" + "Cheap" = oxymoron

    My assumption of OP's meaning of a good, cheap scope.

    Burris C4 or Nikon Monarch.
    I have both, and they both perform a lot better than the price would suggest.
