Long-range shooting is very popular right now, with more people ringing steel out at 1,000 yards than ever. However, a thorough knowledge of ballistics is required to implement the features of a long-range scope. I’d be willing to bet that a good many features built into the best-long range scopes are lost, but we as shooters are doing quite an impressive job educating ourselves.

Here’s a look at some of the best values in long-range scopes for 2018, both simple and complex, staying within a reasonable budget.

The new Strike Eagle 4-24x50mm scope – with a 30mm main tube – offers a shooter plenty of options in an affordable package. Using the EBR-4 reticle, there are enough useable subtentions for accurate holdover (or under) and wind adjustments without over – cluttering the view. The second focal plane reticle is calibrated to be used at the highest magnification, and is not only glass-etched but illuminated as well. With ¼ MOA adjustments and a full 80 MOA in both planes, the Strike Eagle should prove to be a popular choice, especially with an MSRP of $699.99.
