I am in the same boat you are. I have an AR10 (DD5V4) and am waiting on a Creedmore from Larue. I understand there are 1000 yard ranges in PA, but it is a hike from LI. I am hoping there is something upstate, so I don't have to cross state lines. I am looking at Nightforce as well, although Larue has good optical scopes. In addition to the questions on this thread, what should one use for low light conditions early morning or late evening.I'm in the process of buying or building a 1000+ yd rifle. A friend who has more money than I'll ever have keeps telling me that I need a scope that is at least 32X on the long end and it should be a NightForce. Anyone shooting 24X for 1000 yds?
Since Vortex doesn't appear to make a scope with higher than 24X power I wondered if anyone here shoots long distance and what scopes you have actually used/use and like...and why?
I don't need the lecture of "spend 3X the money on the scope as you did on the gun"....I'm aware of that, but I know there has to be some shining stars out there in scope-land that don't cost as much as a car, but offer good service.
I await your wisdom.
