I have an old Rem 742-30/06 with a Simmons 44 MAG scope that I want to replace with a Sako 75 in 30/06.

I have been looking at the Burris Signature select in either 3x-12x 44mm  or the 4x-16x 44mm.

I prefer the 3x-12x but it doesn't have adjustable paralax like my old Simmons did , which I am used to.

Actually, the Simmons says it has variable power, speed focus and a fixed objective lens.

Am I comparing apples to apples and do I need adjustable paralax with the Burris 3x-12x ?

Thanks

theres no need for a 4-16 scope on a 30-06, the most i would use is 12 on the top end. and are you aware theres better scopes out there than the signature. the bushnell 4200 is a heck of alot better than the burris for a few bucks more.

Chris,

I always thought of  Bushnell as a K-Mart scope. If you're correct, why is it better than Burris?

 

Thanks, Ken

the 4200 isnt like most bushnells. the 4200 competes with leupolds VXIII's, zeiss conquests, and other top of the line scopes. i have never look bushnell as a kmart scope, i have always thought of the tasco world class line, and the low end simmons lines to be kmart scopes, and they are just as crappy as they come besides BSA. and about it being better than burris, when it comes down to quality, clarity, and value, the 4200 knocks away most scopes in the same magnification range, for example, a 4200 2.5-10x40 is superior to the signature select 3-10. and the 4200 you get the rainguard coatings that NOBODY else has, and it is what part of what makes the 4200 the 4200. i will tell you, i dont like the fire fly reticle, the scopes clear enough, no need for a low light reticle.

The Bushnell 4200 Elite used to be called the Bauch & Laumb Elite.  It is not your typical Bushnell.

ok guys you've almost convinced me but..... I've had trouble with the Simmons 44 mag not holding

the adjustments true.Also when you move the ajustments a click or two or three, they might move the poa or they might not.

The Burris caught my eye with their double tension springs and the posi-lock option.

What do you think?

Sorry Cory I typed your name wrong.

Ken

Any of the scopes you are talking are far better than your simmons.....

For me burris signature is far superior than bushnell 4200, even better  with light collector or posilock.

See for yourself...

If you want to shoot at short ranges with medium/high power or at long ranges with more than 10x you need AO in your scope, and side focus is more user friendly specially in long scopes like these.
