Reply To: Best 6-24x scope in the 300-400USD price range
Personally, if you really want max 24x, then I would get scondhand elite 4200 6-24×40 mildot. This has very good optics, AO starting 9meters, and relative low weight with 595 grams.
But for me, best allround is elite 6500 2.5-16×42. Again very good optics, sideparallax from 9 meters, and lightweight 492 grams.
I dont like the hawks much, due to optics which may be good or not , dpends on your luck, but never as good as the elites, and they weigh much more… Ofcourse they are sold by the hundreds, and many people rave about them, so i am prolly wrong….
just my 2 cents
