I was just at BPS and was originally looking at the Bushnell Trophy for my new H&R 222 rem. I was at the range shooting 200 yards and the 3-9 just wasnt cutting it. SO im moving up. The guy at Bass Pro said the Legend was a very nice scope and probably the best for the money. (200 bucks or so) So im wondering what you guys think of the two scopes and which you think is better for the rifle and the range. Target/Varmint 100-400 yards maybe more.... Thank you in advannce.

  Don't know if you mean the scope or the magnification wasn't getting the job done. If your talking small targets/varmints,I'd reccomend this scope in the price range you've mentioned:

YEa sorry i meant the magnification. The fixed 10 power just isnt enough, plus i like the variable for closer stuff. Never know where somehtings gonna be. Though i have been known to go right up to a groundhog hole and pop a 3 and  ahalf shotgun shell in em.

DOA is meant more for standard big game cartridges and deer hunting, and the Legend is supposed to have better optics so it is the winner right there....throw in Nikon Buckmaster and Burris Fullfield 2 4.5-14, Vortex Diamondback 4-12x40, and Weaver Classic 4-16x42.
 
There is a lot of good choices when you get past these $200-$300 scopes, but I'm betting one of these would work for you and not weigh down your H&R so it stays handy.  When you know what you really, really like when it comes to reticle and magnification you can trade it in with SWFA and get your more expensive pride and joy.

A few reviews around the web have people disappointed in the plastic turrets for the Bushnell Legend 5-15x40, just a heads up.
 
Might want to check one out in person first and make sure they are acceptable to you.

They look finger adjustable to me, not target turret style but still finger adjustable.

Ok i see what you mean, they have the caps yes but instead of using a knife or bullet cap u can use ur fingers to adjust.

I recently had a similar quandry in scoping a C-Z .221 and looked at similar options. Conclusions: 1 The Bushnell DOA reticle is "overpriced", you can upgrade the next-expensive line and probably even get a mil-dot for the same $. 2. You didn't specify exactly what X range, but if size (length) is an issue, the 4-12 Legend is longer than either the Trophy or Elite 3200 4-12X...if not, might as well go for the 5-15X, which IMHO is the "best" varmint scope for <$200. Have heard of the plastic cap problem but probably not an issue if not heavily used. 3. Don't forget that fully-coated lenses start at the Legend line.
Good luck!
