My "most expensive" scope is an older Leupold 3.5-10X40 VariXIII, Precision Rifleman, a sort of poor man's tactical. It has worked fine on my Remington 700 VSFS, .308. Sold the rifle, and kept the scope. It sits in a box at present. Might put in a set of spare rings and play with it later this year. If I do, it will go on either my custom .280 Ruger, or, most likely my custom '06 Mauser.
Been a member of a gun club with a 1000 yd. range, as well as an 800 yd. tactical range for a several years now. Never seem to get out there and shoot anything longer than 300 yds.
Need to do that this year.
It's not that I can't afford an expensive scope. I just haven't found any that offered much. Add a set of adjustment knobs and an appropriate reticle, and the better hunting scopes work fine for anything I've ever done.
Had a fancy 6.5-20X40AO for a few years. Realized that anything over 10-12X just wasn't useful in the field.
So, until I find a need, I'm good where I am. E

There is nothing that enters a man from outside which can defile him; but the things which come out of him, those are the things that defile a man.

My most "expensive" scope is my 1.25-4x24 Bushnell Elite which sells for ~$500 and it resides on my 11yo's Husqvarna 1640 in 8x57.

Here it is. The scope will be moved forward after I cut the stock to suit my boy's LOP.

A Zeiss Conquest 3-9 with Rapid Z reticle sitting on a semi-custom rem 700 .308 WIN. Not nearly on the level of some of the others here but it is MY most expensive scope.

FWIW, I use all Leupolds on all my rifles, which are either M70s or Sako A series; currently all of them wear Leupolds of some flavor, usually VXIIIs - have never saw a need to buy a different brand.

Remington m7 AWR in 7mm SAUM wears a Leica 2.5-10x42.
Pre-64 M70 in .300 H&H also wears a Leica 2.5-10x42
Montana 99 in .375 H&H also wears a Leica as well, only with the #1 ret.

Yeah, I kinda like that scope a lot...

People think there's a rigid class system here, but dukes have been known to marry chorus girls. Some have even married Americans.
