Arrgghh the agony of choice. To cut a long story short converting one of my older target rifles to have a go at F TR Class. One day might feel flush enough to ptch into F Class proper but that seems to be a bit of an arms race. Sooo having chatted to a number of people seems there are different lines of thought on scopes for work at around the 1000 yard mark. First is that you get the most mahoosive benchrest style variable power tube with the highest magnification (32X or 42X) and 1/8 MOA clicks in order to drill the heart out of that mo' fo' piece of paper. Second is that you need something German, Swiss, Austrian or just hugely expensive in order to show that you can. Third is that the adherents to (1) and (2) should get a life: up to 20X is about the minimum but something up to 25X in 30mm tube is far more realistic in terms of the real world abilities of 98% of shooters and ammo, far great range of internal adjustment available, less wobblage and lower general risk of bankruptcy. So non silly money possibles as I see it are: Leupold VX-III 8.5-25x50mm LRT http://www.leupold.com/hunting-and-shooting/products/scopes/vx-iii-riflescopes/vx-iii-8-5-25x50mm-long-range-target/ Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25x50mm LR/T M1 (more expensive than the one above but drawn to that as I aready have a lower powered Mark 4 on another rifle) Nightforce 5.5-22 x 50 NXS http://www.nightforceoptics.com/SCOPES_OVERVIEW/5_5-22x50___5_5-22x56/5_5-22x50___5_5-22x56.html Views, suggestions etc from the shooty sages of ARRSE welcome.
