A buddy of mine won a Savage .17hmr at a Whitetails banquet over the weekend and is looking for a little help on a scope. I believe the budget will be about $250 or so, he mentioned he would like a 4-12x. I'm not sure if he is thinking of a bdc reticle or just a duplex.
 
I thought of sightron SII, but they get pricey past the 3-9. There is the Vortex Diamondback 4-12, for about $200, but I don't have any experience with the scope.
 
Any other suggestions?

Congratulations to your buddy. The 17 HMR is a fun round. The .17 HMR is at its best under 300 yards. The Bullet is not heavy enough to carry much energy past the 300 yard mark. I like the 2-10 scope for more versatility. Check out Samplelist.com for some great deals. There are several Burris that fit in your price range. A 3-9 Sightron II also. There is a 2.5-10 Nikon Monarch 3 if you can stretch up to $299. Need to hurry because these are going away fast. Good Luck.

Nikon just announced a new series of rim fire scopes..

They are called the Prostaff 11 3-9x40 & 4-12x40 with the 150 BDC reticle.
