Looking for something $250 or less. Range is secondary to accuracy. As long as it can range animals at 400+ yards and steel at 800+ it'll suffice for my current needs. I'd like something that's accurate to +/- 1 yard if possible. I was about to order a Vortex Ranger 1300, but the +/- 3 yard accuracy rating has me taking pause. Open to suggestions.

Picked up a brand new Sig Kilo 1200 for $140/shipped. Should be more than sufficient for my needs. Supposed be here Saturday. Looking forward to playing with the new toy.

check our Sig Kilo 850’s, 1200’s and the 2000. You can get the 850’s and 1200’s for $150 range. The 2000’s you can find used for around $300 on Fleabay. Awesome RF, and competes with much higher end RF’s IMO.
