I am looking to spend around $550 for a scope for my deer rifle. This rifle is my only deer rifle and will be used for shots from 10 yards to 400 yards. I began thinking that the vx-3 with cds would be the best bet but the thought of the dial getting accidentally turned and taking a quick shot without a chance to check it scares me. I think I am going to to with a scope with max power of 10 and a holdover reticle. I like the Burris but it is heavy, the Nikon looks like the best all around value but I am not crazy about the circles, the vx-3 with boone anc crockett looks ok but not sure about the glass and value. I also looked at the sightron s-ii big sky but had one of the earlier s-ii and wasn't really impressed with the glass. I am missing any options?
Thanks for your thoughts.
