Hi AllHowdy
I am looking for experiences of others who shoot little critters from 25y-500y and use a scope with Tactical knobs. I shoot rabbits here in New Zealand and am looking to extend my range. I have a ruger hawkeye 243 and want some glass on it that will help me do this. I am pretty sure 6-24x is what I am after. So here are the specs
6-24x
limit is $500 US$
And the kicker.... Able to be exported to NZ.

Thanks in advance

Good Luck  SWFA cant export out of country. I think you will be limited to what you can find there and I can tell you that $500 wont do it here. What you probably should look for is a Zeiss Conquest.

Yeah I realise SWFA cant export Sad
However there are some companies that can. I was more after suggestions of what scopes members have used with Tactical turrets that they would recommend. Barska, Mueller, Weaver etc For shooting out to 500

Kia Ora Tone,
 
Have a looksee on the net if you can find a Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24x50 with tactical turrets, I´m pretty sure they will be "cheapish".
 
If you go to fishnhunt forum there´s a thread atm at the optics section regarding import of scopes.
 
Have shot rabbits in N.Z. with a "covered turrets" 4200 and it was just fine once you got the hang of the hold-over bit. The glass is good enough - it´s a loooong scope though.....

You won't find many, if any, here who recommend Barska, seldom Mueller...

Yes I did fancy that model. I was just a little put off that it didnt have Tactical turrets. Otherwise I would have been ordering!!

While not actually tactical turrets it does have "target" turrets under the caps.  You can always just leave the caps off

Could you order from a Common Wealth country, such as Canada?  It may prove easier.

I have a Mueller 8x32x44 on my 223. It's clear and bright with repeatable target turrets.
Cost was $240 USD by the time you get it to New Zealand it should still be within your price range.
It's a good cheaper scope that you can stretch out!

Cheers,

Tye
