For target shooting, it’ll be going on a 6.5 Creedmoor if that makes any difference.
I don’t know a whole lot about scopes only that the dials adjust the recticle to match the crosshairs to the given distance and wind drift etc.
I’ve seen that dirt cheap scopes can be very unfocused, unscrew when trying to adjust or move the recticle in a jaggered line.
I just want something that I can see clearly through with smooth adjustments that will make shooting easy up to around 1000 yards.
I don’t know much about scopes but I’m estimating I’ll have around $1000 to spend on one after purchasing the rifle I want and factoring in a safe.
So, if anyone can point me in the direction of thee best options under $1000 that would be great.
Also - as I’m not actually licensed yet, can I still legally purchase firearm accessories such as stocks and scopes as long as I have no barrelled action?
