The problem with the Chinese made scopes is the consumer is the only real quality control. You might get a good one right off, or it might take a few rounds of of testing their customer service... Not worth the time or money in my book! Especially on a thumper, like a 300 win-mag.

 If you can't stretch the budget, I would suggest either a 12x, 16x fixed SS. At $300, they have decent glass, and rock-solid adjustments!


 These are the two already suggusted by SVT.


 I can personally vouch for the SS fixed scopes and the 3-15,  I also have a 5-20 HD. All have been great tracking scopes that perform well above their price!

I've seen decent review on the Falcon. But for a thumper like you have any of the fixed power SWFA 10X thru 16X would be the way to go in my book for around $300.
 
AS far as the variable power goes the Falcon was the budget scope. A little more cash and you can get a SFWA 3-9 such as earlier suggested for around $550 I think. I've heard some great reviews.
 
As far as the budget model fixed power scopes the Bushnell 10X is around $250 but the SWFA models for an extra $50 is well worth it.
 
I've picked up a SWFA 6X and plan on getting the 16X soon.

A buddy had one. I looked through it a number of times and came to the conclusion that you could do better for the same money.

Checking out the sample list would be a very good way to stretch your budget and get a nice scope to meet your needs.

BTW what are you going to use it for and at what ranges are you shooting? That way we can give you better suggestions.
