Default What scope would you get for $800.00

Hi guys.

I still need your help. I'm still undecided on which scope to buy. I have about $800 to spend. I want a scope which will be a 3.5x14x50mm(Approx). with NO adj. Obj. Side focus I can live with. What would you buy with that kind of cash. Thanks for your help again!!!!

I see that you are in Canada so I assume that you mean Canadian dollars.For big game hunting I would not use so much magnification.I would go with the ziess conquest 3.5x10x44 for $879 from russells sports or wholesale sports.If you really want more power the conquest 4.5x14x44 sells for $939.

good lord all mighty. I couldn't see spending that much on anything? maybe a gun + a scope + box of shells LOL. I bought a cheap 50 dollar Scope 5 years ago for my 7mm and its still works like a charm today.

The Zeiss Conquest scopes suggested by stubble are excellent scopes. If you would like something a little less in price and power you could always go for the 3-9 x 40 mm Conquest for about $700.00 CDN. You can’t go wrong with either one of those scopes...

I have 2 Conquests myself and agree for the money you have set aside it is a great choice. I have a 40 & 44 mm objective and don't notice any real advantages to the larger bell, the optical performance of the conquest is very good. For a biggame setup power range of3x9 or 3.5x10 have always been my preference as well and I have yet to want or need more.

I have been extremely pleased with my Conquests and would highly recommend them to anyone.
