    So, what about Leupold Mark 5 ?

    The Leupold illuminated with T3 is $2600 USD retail. Non-illuminated T3 is $2100 USD retail. https://www.eurooptic.com/Leupold-Mark-5-Scopes.aspx?q=ODZlYWM1ZGUtZDgzYy00N2M3LTkyNGItNWI1ZWEyZWExYmY2_ZTc2Yzk3ODItYzI5ZC00YzljLWI4ZDYtOWI4MjZjYTkwNWRh&o=0&p=1&i=48&d=48

    Scope for 2K or less New not used!

    You are going to be hard pressed to find something better than the Leupold Mark 5HD for less than $2k. @koshkin did a nice video comparing a bunch of high end scopes, and he said the Mark 5HD was the best bang for the buck.

    Hunting scope recommendation for a 6.5 prc rifle?

    If you are talking about a MIL/LE discount, most manufactures provide them. Leupold does offer an awesome discount i can tell you that. https://www.leupold.com/leupold-core/vip-programs

    Case trimmer

    I use Little Crows Gunworks trimmer for autoloaders, and 21st century lathe for my precision bolt guns.

    Hunting scope recommendation for a 6.5 prc rifle?

    I was speaking from a durability standpoint, but i get what you are saying. Personally, I hardly dial with my hunting scopes, but I recall my dials were accurate and returned to zero when i was doing load testing from 100/200/400/600/800. If i recall, it tracking issue was an early VX-6 issue...

    Hunting scope recommendation for a 6.5 prc rifle?

    For a rifle that will be used primarily for hunting, you arent going to be much better than a Leupold VX-5HD or a VX-6HD. They are generally the lightest in weight for comparable scopes, and optically they perform best in low-light and high-glare scenarios. Plus they are built to take anything...

    Scope recommendation

    for less than $1k, you should look at the Leupold VX-3i LRP line. I've been very happy with mine, and it comes in MOA/MOA or MIL/MIL option.

    Leupold VX-5HD 3-15x44mm

    The ATACR doesn't not perform as well as the VX-5/6HD in low light. I noticed that the reticle fades (ran in non-illuminated setting) and its hard to distinguish the "animal" (3D deer) from the background. The leupold performed exceptionally in the same test. You are going to have a hard time...

    Need Hunting Scope Rec’s?

    The Leupold VX-5/6HD series are as good (if not better) than the Swaro Z series. Plus a majority of their scopes are available at Cabelas and under the $1500 mark. The AMG is a nice scope, but the VX5/6HD's are better in almost every sense. More adjustment, lighter in weight, better performance...

    Leupold VX-5HD 3-15x44mm

    Not sure if you have seen this video yet, but it compares the Z5 to the VX5HD. It helped confirm my decision to get the VX5HD.

    Need Hunting Scope Rec’s?

    Hard to beat a VX-5HD or VX-6HD for hunting.

    Glass comparison?

    Can't say i have looked through all 3 of those, but I do have the VX5-HD and its absolutely fantastic. Edge to Edge clairity and low light performance is top tier. Plus its lightweight. Here is a video that help solidify my decision. It compares the VX5-HD to a Swaro Z5.

    Leupold BX-4 Pro Guide HD 10x42mm Binocular or other ~$500 binoculars?

    I went with the BX-4's and love them. Very close performance wise to my buddies Swaro SLC's when compared side by side, and at a fraction of the cost!

    PSTII or Razor HD for m99 .50 BMG

    This would be the correct option.
