Hello All,

I am looking for a new scope for my 338-06.  This will be used for moose, deer, and (hopefully not) brown bear. Shooting range up to 200 yards. I am thinking a 1.5-6x or 2-8x. I am will to spend $500-1000. I have had good luck with Zeiss Conquest (4.5-10x44)but still have not figured out the scope covers for the eye piece because of the rubber ring eye protector. I also live in a cold, dark, wet environment, if this is any consideration.

I am wonder if I will gain much spending up to an extra $500.00.

I am thinking Docter Optics, Kahles, Meopta, Zeiss.

Thanks in advance,
Steve

Bushnell 4200 3-9x40 would be a nice scope for your conditions and would be well under $500.00.

I put a Zeiss Conquest 1.8-5.5X38 on my 338 Fed.  I really like that scope, but I just looked at the SWFA site and I don't think they make that particular one anymore.  This one, I think, would also work well.
