Hello.  I am looking for a good scope in the $200 -$250 range.  I will be mounting it on an ARMS 2 rail (not sure about the rings?) on a Bushmaster A2.  I will be shooting hogs, coyotes and bad guys at around 75 - 300 yds.  I've done some reading and it looks like the Burris Fullfield II 1.75 5x20 is a pretty good choice (and it looks like you can get it online for under $200.    Any tips, pointers or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.  Any other scopes fit the bill?


 Thanks and happy shooting.

Coyotes Hogs and bad guys all move so a low power optic is what you want. my first choice would be an EOTEC or an aimpoint which work better in practical application than you might think.  As for Burris the fixed power 1x or 2x might be something I would use.  When you start getting up to 5 or 6 power you want larger than 20mm objective for added light gathering.  (6x42 being ideal) I would probably go with a fixed power 1x or 2x if it was a lower dollar scope. If money was no object I like the Leuold Mark 4 scopes and could make suggestions there that you dont want to see the price tag on. I have had good success with a 1x Burris short mag and extremely bad luck with a Burris 3-9 short mag and a Burris pistol scope so I might be more inclined to buy a Nikon. You might look at IOR also.
