Trying to decide if I want a 20moa base and what optic to run. It's for up to 600yards for deer rifle. Thinking maybe a 6-24x? Any input

budget?  Nightforce SHV 5-20 for $1200 ?

Trying to keep the total cost below 2k if possible. I'm looking in the sub $800 range but won't rule it out

Wont be disappointed  :tup:

Pretty sure "inpatient" is where you go when you have a drug problem.  :chuckle:

So yeah, i guess it kinda applies to gun stuff

Most people don't like US869 so you can generally find it on the shelves somewhere.  It has its quirks, but once you get them figured out it isn't so bad.  I've used a lot of it.
