Whats your price range?   Minox ZA5's are a great value but not in that specific mag range.  I think they go 4-20

I had a 3-9 redfield and liked it ok. The turrets felt sloppy and loose but the adjustments were true.  They are backed by a great company if warranty is ever needed.  Always like to watch this video for some reason...

Watch the video to see what happens when you put a Redfield Revolution with the Accu-Range reticle up against five milk jugs spaced 100 yards apart - with a massive 2400mm lens capturing it all in high definition. Now that's some contrail!

this...

however, if you can stand to go a little less mag and the OB doesn't need to be huge (for low light), i like the vortex 2-7x32 even better than the redfield.  my son does too... but that may be because i've told him i do :)

agreed if he goes less mag the viper 2-7 is a steal and better glass. in a similar mag range as stated i don't know many in the $250 range I'd count on other than that.

For $200 that is a pretty tall order. I might suggest that you take a look at the sample list as there were a couple of nikon buckmasters listed around that price and in the 4.5-16 power range. I would also agree that for a hunting rifle that's a lot of magnification so if you could back up to something a bit smaller the options open up a lot.

Personally, I'd look for a used Burris Fullfield II 4.5-14x42 and see if you could find one close to that price range. Another decent option which you can often find for that price range used is the Bushnell Elite 3200 5-15x40. I had one for a while, and other than the tracking being horrible, it was a good scope. If you are going to set it and forget it, it worked great and had pretty good glass.

Of those 3 I would probably go in the reverse order you have them listed. Vortex redfield prostaff.

My gunsmith really like them, says the quality and eye relief are great.  I'm thinking about purchasing one myself.  But I wish they made a magnification range up to 14 or 16.
