This will be my range scope to go with a Minox 1.5-8x hunting optic.

M14 and a cz 452 in 22LR with picatinny rail are gonna be sharing this thing- any other good options in this price range?

looking for something with some decent magnification as I already am well covered on the low end with the Minox- Wanna be able to really dial it in at 100+ for load development.


Any other options with a #4 or a duplex would be sweet- not sure if I like their versaplex or BDC reticles...

Burris, Bushnell, Nikon, Weaver, all make 3-12, 4-16, 6-18 scopes in this range.
CameralandNY still has the Vortex Viper 6.5-20x44.

Rustle;

I've got a CZ452 that wears a (now discontinued) Nikon Monarch 3.3-10X A/O mil-dot scope. However, it's an active hunting gun not a range beast. I by far prefer the mil-dot reticle & no longer buy anything else. BDC types, which I have tried, simply can't cut it in comparison.

As was noted above, several manufacturer's can provide good glass in the magnification range you'd like. I'd do some searching & see who can do it with the reticle you'd prefer. I just bought, but have not yet received, a Hawke 3-12 A/O mil-dot. We'll see how it compares to other glass I've got that's more-or-less in the same price range.
