Recommended 1000 Yard Scopes
Recommended 1000 Yard Scopes ($1,000 - $2,000)
I hope you've enjoyed this overview of some of the options available to related to selecting a Long
Range Scope. Every hunter has their own preferences but you can't go wrong with any of these choices:
Leupold ($1874 retail)
VX-6 4-24x52mm Side Focus CDS with Varmint Reticle and Leupold CDS
This scope is receiving great reviews for its optics and can be found at a significant discount as
Leupolds new flagship scope. The turrets are lower-profile which allows fitting in a scabbard better
Leupold VX-3L Long Range Rifle Scope 6-20x 56mm CDS and Varmint
Swarovski ($1821 retail )
Z5 5-25x52 P BTL with BRX Reticle and Outdoorsman's Ballistic Turret
THE LONG-RANGE HUNTER rifle scope is intended for optimum long-range precision. This 1-inch rifle
scope leads the way in its class thanks to its lateral parallax correction and optical performance. The
factory turret allows the user to modify it but only for 3 distances. Plan on ordering the custom turret
shown from Outdoorsmans. Scope is available in both the BRX and the heavier lined BRH reticle. In
dark light some find the BRX too light but for precision shooting most prefer a finer reticle like the BRX.
BRH reticle shown below.
Nightforce ($2025 retail )
5.5-22x56 NXS Rifle Scope with Velocity 1000 reticle and Kenton's LR Hunter Turret
There is a reason Nightforce scopes are the choice of our military and many competitive shooters.
Their durability, quality control, and turret precision is second to none. Their only drawback for
hunters is that they weigh a pound more than most other scopes being considered. If you don't mind
the extra weight its a great choice.
Pro's: Top of the line Optics, Turret
Precision, and Durability.
Con's: A pound heavier
Turret - Kenton
This VX-3L Looks like a beast on
this 338-378 but it actually
weighs a full pound less than a
Nightforce and you can get both
it and a new Leica Rangefinder
for the price of a Nightforce.
