Hi, so new to the long range shooting and currently building a rig out of an old Rem 700 chambered in 7mm rem mag. Would like to end up at one mile when all done is my goal however it will take time to get there and would mostly do 1000 meters. I am looking for a scope in the $1500 to $2000 range. I was looking at the SWFA SS 5-20 HD since that magnification range should get me out to a mile when i get there or should i look towards the US Optics B10 1-10 for the time being and then purchase another down the road? The reason i brought up the B10 is because i don't see me hitting a mile for a while and getting a great optic. Is there another optic in that price range that will track well, along with great glass, and will let me reach to a mile?
Rex, during your YouTube sniper classes you said the SWFA SS was a good scope to start with for the price. It has been a number of years since you made that recommendation, is there any more that you could recommend? Thanks
