    The best scope you can afford. Its not uncommon for me to have more money in my scope than I do in my gun.

    I'm wanting one of those new steiner scopes that is advertised at the top of the page. Mostly because I love my steiner binoculars !

    I would love to have one of those Dr. Death. I drool every time I see their banner.

    Thats the difference for sure. I use Zeiss and the biggest difference is low light. I just bought a Luepold and it aint even close on low light.

    I hate saying this because I know it's not going to popular, but everytime I buy a leupold (except for the LPS one) I've wished I would have bought a higher grade. Good glass will ruin you....

    Its not popular No-till, but the facts are the facts.

    I've been real tempted to get a Minox scope. They get awesome reviews and aren't ridiculously expensive.

    The main detail that we need is the price range you want to be in. A 3000 dollar swarovski will be alot better than a 200 dollar nikon. Shoot me a pm, Im a advertiser here and my entire business revolves around walking folks into the perfect optic for their budget, and the way they intend to use it.

    I went a different route than most for my new coyote AR. I had always used 3x9 or 4x10 variables, but invariably a coyote would pop out at 40 yards and I'd left it turned up. I got a 6x42 fixed power sightron SII big sky on close out. Normally $400 scope, but was on close out for $279 then sightron had a $100 rebate. Total cost $179 plus shipping for an awesome scope. The 6x is plenty to 300 yards or more but not too much if they pop up close to you.
