Whacko  I have been looking at all kinds of scopes. I have got it down to two.  can you guys help me out.  it is for a savage 12 308 short action.  that I am buliding for a friend.  He does not want to spend more that 400 ish on a scope.  yes i know.  i tried to get him in a ss scope. but he said he wants something i dont have.  so here goes. Whacko these are his ideas

Vortex 6.5-20x44 Viper 30mm Rifle Scope

Vortex 6-24x50 Crossfire 30mm Rifle Scope

he is leaning to this one the most.  because he really only wants to spend 250ish and like the look of this one.

Sightmark 8.5-25x50 Triple Duty 30mm Rifle Scope
 
so any ideas help us out.  Loco

Go for the Viper.  The other two scopes ar enot in the same league (or in the neigboring leagues).

Does the friend really need 20X?  If you are setting up the rifle, my guess is he doesn't know much of guns or optics.
 
Is this strrictly a bench gun?
 
Koshkin's advice is sound.
