I want to put a good quality scope on my next hunting rifle.  But not break the bank.  This will be a .308 Winchester deer or elk rifle.  I'm thinking 3-9.  Matte finish.  Suggestions please.

Bushnell Elite is a nice scope.  I have a couple from when they where 4200s.  I really like them.

Having used several scopes in this price range my suggestion would be the Burris FFII's. I've not tried the new E1's, but I'd like to. I know the older FFII's are great choices and imo the best I've looked through until you step up to a Zeiss Conquest for more than double the price.

4200 3-9x40 is a great all-around scope for the money

I have one on my 700 in .308

The Bushnell Elite is a solid choice with good glass.  The big difference with the Burris is they tend to have a balistic reticle.  While I am not a big Burris fan this does look like a good deal to me.
