Thanks for the input everyone, I guess I'll wait a little longer to buy a scope. The scope I have now works great out to 100 it's just not the sharpest optic but it didn't cost me much. I've been spoiled with good friends and had the opportunity to shoot some rifles with great glass. Once I'm ready for so long distance shooting I'll pony up or when I break the Centerpoint.

I am not a fan of BDC scopes for long range shooting.

You have to shoot the right load for the BDC to work properly.

My theory on the Vortex was to get the gen 1 as eventually they will warranty replace with the gen 2 ... love my PST's.

More magnification is not a substitute for better glass. Always go for better glass.
The VX2's are light in weight.

I put this (6-24) on my Savage .308 10T. Sharp edge to edge and very bright. It definitely won't break the bank and sometimes you can find it on sale.

These might be above the threshold for bank breaking, but a really awesome read.

I actually just bought this Vortex Viper HS 4-16x44 w/ V-Plex Reticle for $350 minus a $15 coupon for $335

http://www.opticsplanet.com/vortex-o...16x44-VHS-4304

Also - Midway has the "long range" model with the tactical turret:
