Which Scope would be best for target shooting out 300 - 1000 yards? Is there something that can do a the job correctly for $500.00 or less? or should I keep saving for that $1000 Plus piece of glass? Also, will the scope work for in urban environment when the shit hits the fan.:horse:
Scopes are a personal thing. That said, go somewhere you can look through them as though it's mounted. Check eye relief. Check field of view. Consider differences in first focal plane or objective for the reticle. Can you readily convert MILs to MOA in your head? If so a MIL reticle and MOA adjustments are okay. If not, look for either MIL/MIL or MOA/MOA reticle/adjustments. Variable is nice, but realize as you adjust power you change the point of aim.
