Just bought a Tikka T3 SuperLite in 7mm Rem Mag. Now I need a scope for it. Would like 50mm objective, 4-16x or 6-24x magnification, and 30mm tube. I really like the vortex scopes. Oh and budget is about $700-$800.

Vortex is gtg, I wouldn't get too caught up about a 50mm objective, with good glass all you do is have to mount the scope higher.

50mm glass is money wasted. Except in extremely rare and very narrow uses it won't do anything a 40mm or smaller glass won't do. There are more negatives to 50mm glass than positives.

With a $700-$800 budget I'd buy 2 Zeiss Conquest 3-9X40's or 2 Leupold VX-2's in 3-9X40. You'll get a better scope with either at 1/2 your budget.
