I have recently bought a new stevens model 200 (cheap good gun) and looked around in my price range and picked a Bsa Panther 3x10x40 rifle scope. Not knowing what the experts think. I have a bsa sweet 17 on my Marlin 717 .17m2 and its great. Im getting head shots on jackrabbits out here at like 70 yards. So I never thought bad of the brand. So when it came time to up the anit to .30-06 i thought i was making a good choice. I would be very greatful for your input my price range is very small (120-150$)

Welcome to The OT!!

 

Are you wanting the same BSA scope for the .06, or something better, but only want to spend up to $150 dollars??

I'm confused....

im afraid the i might have gotten lucky on the sweet 17 and the panther might be total crap. i picked it because it said water proof, it had a sun shade and shock resistant

OK, I copy you now.

Your post was rather cluttered and I missed the "message".

 

You can sell the scope locally, or on ebay, or you can take it out and shoot it and see if it holds up for you.

I'd probably sell it and get a Nikon Buckmaster off the Sample list for $150.00.
