Assume you mean for big game hunting?

Mike there are actually quite a few options that are available in the price range.
 
Where are you hunting? What are we hunting...Whitetails?

Sorry. Hunting whitetails in MD so no really super long shots rarely any shooting over 300yds. Not that my son will be shooting that far anytime soon but I would like the rifle to be equipped for it when the time comes. Thanks

Mike with that range in mind, I would consider something with a BDC reticle.
 
Minox, Leupold, and Vortex would all be great choices.
 
 
Matter of fact, check this one out.

Looks like a nice scope and a great price. I have no familiarity with Minox but for the price I may have to give that a go. Any other options?

Do you remember the cold war, and the mini spy cameras? That was Minox. Minox was made famous by their camera products, abd then they ventured off into sport optics.
 
There are. There are so many that it would make your head spin honestly.
 
What are some features that you have to have?

Thanks for all of the feedback I just ordered the Minox 3-9x50 ZA3 off the sample list. I tried the German #4 we'll see how it goes thanks again.

I would give some consideration to a 4x or 6x fixed power scope they are very tough and never on the wrong power, very bright in low light and easy to use not such a high power that you cant get it onto a deer.  Other than that suggestion I would strongly consider Vortex due to their warranty.
