First, let me say there is a ton of great advice on this forum. I've been looking through the posts and decided to sign up. I know from my searches that this question gets asked a lot and I have found lots of opinions on here but I'm going to ask anyway. I shoot a lot of handguns but have only recently decided to venture into rifle shooting. Haven't shot much rifle since I was a kid ( a long time ago). I just purchased a Savage 93R17, 17HMR and am trying to decide what scope to put on it. I'll be mostly paper punching, up to 100 yards. My eyes are old. Is it possible to get a decent scope for this rifle in the 300 dollar range? Thanks in advance for any advice

For out to 100 yards this would be an excellent choice. It's not the thinnest reticle for absolute precise grouping, but should work fine for what you are doing. They have about the best glass $300 will buy.
 
 
These are pretty nice also. The $300 mark will put you in to decent scopes.
 
 
Reconditioned on samplelist.com, these are nice too. I'm sure somebody will have more ideas. I'm out of time.
 
Welcome to the Optics Talk. We are glad to have you.

If you are shooting at short ranges, also, an adjustable objective scope would be a benefit. Two that come to mind are the Weaver and Leupold 3-9's. They are both very good scopes with the Weaver being more cost effective.
If you are shooting at ranges below fifty yards and need precision the AO will certainly help. If the ranges are longer I've never had a problem with big game scopes on rimfires, either.

Though I have been trying other scopes the last few years the Burris 3-9 AO rimfire should be a good choice. It's cost lies between the Leo and the Weaver. Burris scopes are very well made and the glass has always been good IMO.

First, thanks for all the input. I'm starting to get this narrowed down a bit with all the suggestions. I'm looking at the Bushnells and wondering what is the difference between the Elite 3200 series and the legend series?

Game animals are most active at first and last light. Therefore, it's a fine idea for you to follow suit - with the Bushnell Elite 3200 rifle scope featuring Bushnell's patented FireFly technology. Unlike scopes with battery-powered reticles, a doseof flashlight is all it takes to activate the glowing crosshairs. Your target appears bright and clear, even in the gloomiest conditions. Add in Bushnell's exclusive Rainguard lens coating, 90% light transmission at 550nm and rigorous testing - recoil-tested to 1,000 rounds of 3.75 H&H magnum - and you're assured of accurate sightings and durable performance in those ideal hours bordering dawn and dusk. You've hard of bright ideas; this one may be the best yet.

Bushnell's FireFly: Developed by Bushnell's engineers especially for the lowest light hunting situations, the patented Fire Fly reticle illuminates the croshairs after only a quick 10-second flashlight charge. Unlike battery-powered reticles, which often fail at the absolute worst times, the Bushnell Fire Fly will gow green and you will see your crosshairs against your quarry.

Rainguard: Bushnell's permanent, patented, hydrophobic and oleophobic lens coating prevents, fogging by cuasing condensation from rain, sleet, snow or even your own breath to bead up into much smaller droplets than on standard coatings. Smaller droplets scatter less light, which results in a clearer, brighter view. Now the hunter won't miss the shot of a lifetime because of rain or accidentally breathing on his eyepiece.

Features:

  • Rainguard
  • Multi-coated optics
  • Magnum recoil-proof construction
  • One-piece aluminum tube
  • 100% waterproof/fogproof/shockproof construction
  • Dry-nitrogen filled
  • 1/4 M.O.A. fingertip, audible/resettable windage and elevation adjustment
  • Fast-focus eyepiece

It's durable, it's dependable and, plainly said, you won't find a more rugged, high-performance scopethat offers more features and such a large field-of-view at a comparable price. The outstanding fully multi-coated optics provide an impress 91% light transmission, giving you a scope that's not only tough, but packs the performance you expect for Bushnell. Featuring a very wide field-of-view and extra long 3.5" eye relief for instant target acquistion, you can be confident that your scope won't fail you at that key moment.

Features:

  • Wide-angle field-of-view
  • Fully multi-coated optics
  • Rugged shockproof construction
  • 100% waterproof/fogproof construction
  • Dry-nitrogen filled
  • 1/4 M.O.A. fingertip, audible/resettable windage and elevation adjustment
  • 3 1/2" eye relief
  • 91% total light trnsmission
  • Fast-focus eyepiece
