I can't make up my mind on a scope for my Kimber. I had a tru glo 6 to 24 power and now a sightron 3.5-10 sI. So now I am thinking a 6-20 sightron big sky or a Burris signature scope. I looked at the vortex viper and diamondback and will consider those for an encore barrel. I don't want to go much passed 650 and would consider a leupold or Nikon. Any thoughts on my dilemma?

I have a Diamondback on my AR and love it. The field of view is great for a 40MM scope. I got the 4-12x40 and can't say enough good things about it for the price.

All that you mentioned so far are good scopes for the money. Might want to look at the Milletts. I put a LRS on my 204 varmit rig and I'm very happy with it. Clear glass, tracks good and has illum. mil dot reticle. Paid less than $400 shipped.

Liked it so much that I bought a TRS for my RRA coyote gun.

My hunting buddy and my stepfather were so impressed with the LRS that they both purchased one.

Good luck in your purchase.

I have a bushnell elite 3200 5-15x on my 22-250. I also have 2 nikon monarch 4-16x mildot scopes on two other guns and love those scopes too.

The viper is a great scope and the warranty is excellent it would be my top pick even over the leupold.

I have a straight 12X Leupold on my 700. I also have a VariXIII 6.5X20 and a 6X24 Burris Signature. All nice scopes that will fit in your budget.

Look into a Pentax Lightseeker series scope... You will get a far superior scope to anything else in that price range.

+1 for vortex... Viper HS
Also good - burris and redfield

Nothing wrong with a leupold or Nikon, but I feel you pay for the name.

Go for a Leupold VX3, if you don't want to spend as much as the 6.5-20 costs then look at the 4.5-14. I would rather have a lesser power quality scope than a cheaper higher power.

I have hunted a lot with a lightweight 22/250 and have a 3-9 Leupold Compact which suffices for 95% of the hunting I do.

That being said, I think the best all-around magnification range for a field varmint rifle (carrying and field positions included) is a 4-14X or so, thus, I vote for a Leupold 4.5-14.

If you wish to go higher, think a 6-18X Leupold.

For close up shots, you often need a wide view 3x or 4x setting and without it, you won't find the animal in time to make a shot.

You missed my point: I am not interested in 6-24X50, or an 8-32x50 scope; as I said, those type of scopes are generally unnecessary, too heavy, and too long for what I do...for my hunting (I walk 3-4 miles sometimes, and almost always 2 miles)

I can't see the need for any 50mm scope....

Did you intend to send your post to the OP rather than me?

no it was for you... i also walk miles when i hunt and thats what i use... but the 6-24x50 monarch weights 19.6 and is 15.5 in long were the vortex viper 6.5-20x44 weights 21 and is 14.5 ins because its a 30mm tube... the sightron weights 17.6 and is 15.04 inches long.. less than 2 oz wont make much difference
