    ^ this...thread seems all over the place now. No offense op.

    Buy once, cry once. Figure out what features you need and sort from there.

    Think in

    FFP vs SFP
    turret reliability / repeatability
    Zero stop
    Illuminated reticle
    Total internal elevation requirements
    Magnification range
    Reticle style
    Mil vs MOA

    I would make a decision tree with what you want and match the scope to those features you weigh more heavily than others.

    Expectation.

    What you expect the scope to do vs how much you spend.

    Some people are happy with Nikon.

    I like Nikon for certain things.
    I LOVE Kahles, Nightforce Trijicon, Hate the price.

    Most scopes are good for a few hundred yards.
    Get out further and good glass will spoil you.

    I absolutely love my trijicon 5x50x56 . It is by far one of the most superior optics on the market . I could clearly see the texture of the paint chips as I nailed the steel at 300+ yards
