If you wanted to buy a scope for your 375 H&H or 375 Ruger and not break the bank would you buy a:
 
1) Leupold 1.5-5x20 VX3 w/German #4 or heavy Duplex 
or
2) Trijicon 1.25-4x24 Accu-Point with a German #4 or Amber Triangle BAC
 
I think I would buy the Trijicon with an amber triangle.

....................Sammy C..........Be careful here!!! I too thought about that same lower variable Trijicon to mount on my .375 Ruger Alaskan.
 
Because of that  Cencored objective bell with this Trijicon, there may not be enough mounting tube length for conventional style rings to properly adjust your eye relief. You will more than likely need (UGLY imo) offsetting rings. It will be very tight with the `06 length .375 Ruger action. And that`s not even considering the longer 375 H&H action!
 
If you don`t mind the off-setting rings, then that`s a totally different story! But, if you dislike one or both offsetting rings over any part of the receiver like I do but want a Trijicon, the 3x9 with a longer mounting tube, will more than likely be your only option.
 
That was my beef with the smaller Trijicon. IMO, although it CAN be used, a 3x9 (Trijicon or otherwise), is overpowered for a 375, narrows the FOV and increases the rifle weight.
 
Also imo, unless your hunting under real low light situations where the Trijicon will have the advantage, that extra $200 or so for the Trijicon vs the 1.5-5x20 VX3, isn`t worth it!
 
That`s why I instead chose, the 1.5-5x20 #4 VX3 over the 1.25-4x24 Trijee!!

Dont hold me to this but I heard something about Trijicon changing the low power Accupoint to a 30 mm tube sometime in the next 4 to 6 months. Meanwhile back at the ranch I have to say that the compact ACOG scopes are awesome I really like the 1.5x.  I would really consider this if they would ever actually get them available:
RX30 Trijicon 1x42 Reflex II Dual Illuminated Sight                                                                          Trijicon 1x42 Reflex II Dual Illuminated Sight
  • 6.5 MOA Amber Dot
  • Free Lens Pen w/ Purchase
SWFA: $317.95

Thunbs Up Squeeze, I'll take the Leupold, too. I had one on my .375 H&H until last year. It is light, looks good, has decent optics and is reliable. The Leo is well known in just about all corners as the bench mark for DGR reliability.

 Would anyone consider the Burris Sig Sel Safari 1.75-5x32? I've read that they're earning respect in the field,especially with the Posi-Lock option.

I have a couple of friends who shoot .50's, mostly for fun.  But they, like many others for the same reasons, chose Leupolds for their durability.  A lot of long range competition magnum-shooters use Leupolds.  Granted, they aren't shooting at dawn or dusk, but they will hold up to a .375 for a loooong time.

Ruger M77, Remington M700 and Winchester M70 magnum length actions Savage and Kimber long actions will work with 375 Ruger, but Savage and Kimber will not accept the H&H.  

Now which rifle?

I have heard that Trijicon will come out with a straight tubed, low variable scope in 30mm. If so, I`ll bet that it sells for more than $600 if not into the $700`s.
 
When you get into lower variable 30mm straight tubed scopes, they all weigh 15 oz and more as opposed to Leupold`s VX3 1" tube at 9.5 oz.
 
What does one hunt in the dark or under extremely dim low light conditions with a .375 DGR? Seems to me that on any professionally guided hunt with a 375, there will always be ample opportunity during the daylight hours. And, I certainly wouldn`t hunt any dangerous game like the dangerous bears, bison, or caped buffalo in extremely low light or dark conditions either.
 
If I can`t see the quarry with my own eyes beforehand, I won`t shoot! If there is a situation where I can`t take a kill with my VX3, then I`ll wait!
 
The Trijicon has a great aiming concept and it certainly works, but imo it`s not worth an additional $200 over the VX3 and maybe more of a difference when their 30mm tube comes out.

...........I did consider this scope. But I`m not a fan of belled objectives on DGR`s. I prefer instead, the lighter, faster, straight tubed, sleeker looking and the more lower profiled look, which in turn offer the wider fov`s.

I went with 30mm straight tubed scope in 1.1-4 with a 24mm objective on my .375. It is a little heavier than my 1.5-5x20 but it's low light performance is far superior. I need this low light performance for bear hunting in the thick stuff. My Leo is still with me at all times, ready in it's Talley QD's.

I think the Squeezer makes a lot of sense here, Leupold looks like a better choice.

Hey!..........I like giving my game a fair and fighting chance! Compared to the very expensive and better in very low light 30mm scopes, the inferior VX3 simply prolongs the inevitable. Big Grin............Under any lighting conditions, if I can`t see the game well enough with my own eyes or looking through binocs, then I won`t take the shot!

You just need to get a couple Euro scopes and try them squeezer.  Your mind would be changed just like everyone else who uses them.  Leupold, Bushnell, Nikon just don't even compare. 

I just wish I had the money to buy a Swaro or two.

I have a Swarovski but remember this thread was about a DGR scope that doesn't break the bank so I think Squeezer's answer makes a lot of sense!
