What are your plans for the rifle/scope?  What kind of shooting will you be doing?  Target?  Hunting?

 WELCOME to OT,Sweden!
 
 For me it would be between the Sightron and the Burris.  With a slight lean towards the Burris. 
What other brands do you have access to?

Sightron. However i a m curious as to what size birds one would be shooting witha gun also intended to shoot a moose. If birds are normal size than a moose caliber gun will not leave much of said bird remaining.

  Go with the Sightron SI then(w/german 4A reticle maybe?).  I like the one I got well enough that I still own it.
 
 The 6.5x55 is very popular in this country,with good reason. BUT I think the 9.3x62 is sexier.  Bucky

 Nothing wrong with that Sightron at all.  I'd take it before the entry level Leupold.

I would lean towards the Burris first, then the Sightron, but if the Sightron is local and a better price, then that might be the way to go.

ExcellentHejsa Sverige.
Velkommen her til OT. Smile
Here in europe you have to pay your scope twice. Unless you do a little work yourself. Check this out.

Spend a little time on it and save.   Excellent
