I'm looking for a useful rifle scope (gun calibre:30-06 springfield for hog, deer... hunting).

I've been looking at these:

Millet 4-16 tactical rifle scope
Redfield revolution
Nikon Prostaff
Vortex crossfire II.

Which one would you recommend? Or any other suggestions with the same budget?

Tanks!! :)

I think that Millett is around 320? For that range, weaver super slam would be on my list very good experience so far. For a bit more a vx-3 2-8x36 is incredibly easy to get behind and has a lot of pros for it. Large game might be perfect.

You really didn't define a budget, but judging by some of the products you are already looking @, I would guess $300?

My favorite in this range is the Sightron, I have several, and they are solid for this price range.                http://swfa.com/Sightron-3-9x42-SII-Riflescope-P5620.aspx

If your looking @ Vortex, I would skip the Crossfire and look @ the Diamondback, a lot of bang for the buck.  http://swfa.com/Vortex-3-9x40-Diamondback-Rifle-Scope-P11237.aspx

Of those listed, I would opt for the Redfield Revolution. Decent scopes for the money, we run a 2-7X on a .338 Federal, and a pair of 4-12X models on AR's. If you could push the top end of your budget, I believe the Leupold VX-2 3-9X is probably the best option in that category. I have one with the wide duplex reticle and it is just a very nice scope. Light weight, clear, durable, good eye relief, and backed by Leupold.
One other lower cost option is the Burris Fulfield II 3-9X. I like the ballistic plex reticle and have run a couple of them for over a decade with no complaints. I would rate it about even with the Redfield Revolution , and ahead of the other options listed.

You should check for options ***LINK REMOVED BY MODERATOR|*** recommended. 

Since you have done the same thing in other threads, and were warned repeatedly, this will serve as a final warning.  Any future posting of links to other vendors will result in suspension.  You are required to acknowledge a set of rules upon joining the OT Forum.  Whether you simply did not read them or chose to ignore them, the end result will be the same.
