I own a 7mm Weatherby stainless, and I have a Zeiss Terra 4-12x50, with Talley mounts.  This combination has served me well, and I have no issues with the set up.  Oh, and welcome to the Nation.

Welcome to the Nation. Lots of good scopes out there. What is your budget for the scope?

Thanks for the welcomes
Budget is $2500 for a scope could push to 3000 if need be.

Wish my budget was that good for my scopes!!!! I'd have put a Swarovski Z6 on some of my Weatherbys if I had the money, the best scope I have is  a Zeiss Conquest. If you can try looking thru some quality glass at a store, it will give you a chance to pick out a reticle too.

Nightforce. I have a few and would have them on all my rifles if I had the funds.

Nightforce are top of the line. IMO they are target hunting scopes.
I have gone with the Leupold VX-5HD 3-15X44 for hunting scopes on the last 2.
The Leica scopes are very good also.
You couldn't go wrong with any of these.
I have never been a Swarovski fan unless it was a spotting scope just my opinion

Ok
Back again with another request for input
I bought a VX-6HD 4-24x52 for my 7mm wby mag.
Now just bought my second weatherby in 30-378
For this long range (which I am trying for the first time ) would a larger optic be suggested . Looking at leupold/ nightforce in nxs and atacr and khales
HELP Iím stuck lol
Oh and thanks for the welcomes

Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

With that budget, Nightforce Atacr 5-25x56 with the MOAR reticle or Swaro X5.

Vortex gen ll 5-25x50
It has more eye relief and a very reliable turret system.
Nightforce rail and steel rings.
You will have money leftover for ammo

On my Stainless Mark V 7mm Weatherby Mag I have a silver Leupold VX II 3x9.  Never wished for anything more.
