Best Leupold for the money
Posted 21 May 2010 - 02:19 PM
What is your budget? Is it for target or hunting??

If you are going to spend $500-$600 I would suggest you browse ebay for a good deal on a leupold. Ebay is where I get most of my optics from. Just remember to buy from sellers who have a positive feedback and stay away from sellers who have 0 feedback. Here are some Leupold items from ebay. Be sure to check the listing to see if they are new or used. [phpbay]leupold rifle scope, 9, "", ""[/phpbay]

A ~14-16x variable Leupold with an AO can be had for ~500-600. The 14-16x is a good hunting / distance compromise.
I once literally slid down the side of a mountain on top of my 3-9 Leupolds 25 years ago and it still holds zero. I also have a 6-24x Tasco that won't hold zero and it's never been dropped. I'm sure that some people have good luck with lesser scopes, but over the long haul, Leupold service and quality stand head and shoulders over most.
There's an old saying... "The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price has faded from memory"

There's no way I could shoot into the sun out here or at 1,000 yards with that. Other than that, it rocks.
