    Purchasing a scope for a new rimfire rifle is often one of the hardest decisions we shooters will have to make. On one hand we want a good quality scope, but on the other we often donít want to spend a lot as the rifle itself was fairly inexpensive. Not many shooters are willing to drop $400+ on a scope for a rifle that cost them less than $300 so optic manufacturers have to walk a fine ...

    The Bushnell Elite series of optics have had an excellent reputation over the years for offering great performance and quality at a reasonable price point. In fact, my oldest optic just happens to be a Bushnell Elite 3200 3-9x40mm that I purchased in 2001 and itís still just as clear and reliable today as it was on the day I bought it. I have also owned a few Elite 4200 series rifle scopes over the years, and my CZ 452 American in .17 HMR currently wears an Elite 6500 2.5-16x42mm. In short, the Bushnell Elite line is one I have a lot of experience with so I was excited to have this opportunity to review Bushnellís ...

    The NightForce brand of optics has been a well-regarded premium brand for quite some time now with their Competition and NSX lines. In recent years they have added new lines that were designed to be use specific such as the ATAR (tactical) and Benchrest lines.

    In 2015 NightForce added another new line specifically aimed towards long-range hunters called the SHV (shooting, hunting, varmint). Their goal for this line of rifle scopes was to provide a more cost-friendly

    If youíve been a gun nut for any length of time youíve surely learned that in this game sometimes you just have to man up and spend some money to get the quality that you really want. Whether itís for a precision rifle, match grade barrel, competition ready pistol or in this case a top of the line scope, the old adage of ďyou get what you pay forĒ still applies in certain instances. Thatís just what I did earlier this summer when I finally broke down and purchased the scope we are looking at today, a Vortex Viper PST ...

    The Burris FullField E1 looks right at home on the Savage 93R17.

    Let's face it, not all of us can afford the top of the line scopes whose prices often exceed $2,000 these days. Heck, most of us can't afford or simply don't want to spend over $1,000 on a scope. Fortunately if you fall into that latter group of shooters you're in luck because the quality and wide selection of scopes priced in the $500 to $1,000 range has never been better.

    First I should probably ...

    As I was sitting here organizing my notes in preparation of writing this review I couldn't help but chuckle at the question that popped into my head, "How did our predecessors ever get along without illuminated reticles?" One can't ignore the fact that most every optic manufacturer the world over offers at least one line of scopes with an illuminated reticle. Even leupold jumped into the fray a few years ago ...
