    Bushnell 3200 & 4200 series are both real good scopes. Thats a lot more magnification than I would care for though. That is also a shitty price.

    The 3200 series optics are Bausch and Lomb with a Bush label. Try the Elite 3200 fixed 10 power with the target turrets, it's the best bang out there for the buck.

    Oh yea, and this is going to be used for hunting elk this fall, as well trying to do long distance target practice.

    WAY too much power

    I'd go no bigger than 10x

    A 10 power optic is better than any pair of glasses out there, you'll be fine.

    most scopes should have adjustable eye pieces anyway

    I've got a 3200 Elite 10x40 mounted on my Swiss and love it.

    Go with the 10x40 as stated above or the 4-16x40 max.

    why is more magnification bad, if it's adjustable? the 10x40 fixed is stuck at 10 times magnification, but the other one can be 7 through 10 and more, correct?

    Also I want to try my hand at shooting targets 600-800 yards, so I figured I'd want more magnification?

    I'm a scope n00b, so edumicate me, please

    Why do you need more magnification? Only thing you will get out of that is more things to mess with inculding a fucked up POI. The military issues their "sniper" scopes with 10 power optics for a reason. Put it this was, with a 10 power optic a target that is at 600 meters would be like you looking at the target at 60 meters. You don't need more.

    Agreed, there's a ton of guys on hunting forums I frequent that use 6x Leupolds for just about everything, at 600 yards (most them don't shoot past 3-400 though) it's like looking at a target at 100, and if you can't hit that you shouldn't be shooting.

    and I'm pretty sure the Marines recently started using a Schmidt and Bender 3x12x50, first time they've ever issued a variable power, but I'm sure 10x is still more prevalent.
