 For the money what is a better all around hunting scope, a  Weaver 3-9x38 V9 or a Bushnell 3-9x40  Elite 3200? It will be on a bolt action .308 rifle.

Tough call, considering that the Weaver is about 25% cheaper.  I would still say that Bushnell is a better alround scope.  They are comparable optically, but Elite 3200 is more durable and has Rainguard, making it a more attractive hunting scope.

As a side note, there are better scopes for the same money as Elite 3200, but between these two, I'd go with the ELite 3200.

koshkin,what scopes do you like better than the Elite 3200 (for the same money)?  I can get the Elite here for about $165.

For the same amount of money I'd look at the Burris Full Field.  Optically, I think it is better than the Bushnell 3200 (cant comment on the Weaver V9 although the Grand Slam is awsome).

Last year I picked up a 3200 Elite 3-9X40 for one of my hunting rifles, which is .308 caliber.  The 3200 looks great on my rifle, and functions very well- - it has good optics, the click adjustments are positive, it always holds zero even when I change the magnification power.  Additionally, as an added bonus, with the rainguard lens coating I never worrry about the scope fogging. 

 

I have some friends who are "gold ring" scope snobs.  They initially looked down at the Bushnell brand, however, after shooting my rifle, they all had to admit the 3200 was a quality piece of glass.

For the same money as Elite 3200 you can get Burris Fullfield II 3-9x40 or SIghtron S2 3-9x42 which are both better, IMO.  ALso, the new Nikon Buckmaster is supposed to be pretty good, but I have not seen it myself yet.
