Ruger Deerfield (looks like a cross from a 10/22 and a mini 14) in 44mag. 

 

Considering:

 

Simmons Aetec 2.8x10

Bushnell Legend 3x9x40

 

Would take a 4x fixed if I could get better glass.

 

Any suggestions?  Thanks in advance!

For for few bucks more, you could get a Nikon Buckmaster for $200.00

 

That scope would set you free!! I had my Buckmaster through the mill and it kept going.

if your going to spend $200, which you really should, stay away from the FF2 3-9x40 w/ ballistic plex, and the free spotter.

The Aetec is one of the nicest scopes under $200, and would be my choice.

 

Cory whats up? You are always recommending the FF2 combo.

For a .44mag I would look for either a fixed 4X or a 1-4X variable.  I would also look for an objective in the 20-32mm range, the smaller the better.  A 3-9x40 will physically be a large scope for your rifle and 9X is overkill for a .44.

I think you should be looking at a compact fixed power or low power variable for that pistol caliber carbine.

 

Burris Mini 4x20.....$179.95

Leupold 4x33.....$219.95

Bushnell Trophy 1.75-4x32 Circle-X reticle.....$99.95

 

If you want more magnification the Aetec works well on carbines and we have a demo on the sampelist right now for $119.95.

Simmons 2.8-10x44 AETEC.....$119.95
