i have been thinking of getting a fixed power scope for target shooting, something like a 14x or 16x all i want to do with it is use it for testing handloads, so what it would do is sit around in a box until i decided to test a new handload then my hunting scope would come off the gun and this target scope would go one get sighted in for 100yds and then i would shoot my test loads and take it off the rifle. sounds like a lot of screwing around i now, but the 9x on my scope isnt enough i dont think. any suggestions try to keep it below $300

i looked at the ss and that was actually the first scope i thought of but i dont know that i really want the mil dot reticle, but thats a good place to start. i dont think it would be a good idea to go buy a cheaper 6.5x24 either, i would rather buy a fixed from a good outfit like ss than buy a cheapo barksa or bsa variable.  t-24 looks like a nice scope as well but i dont wanna spend $400, i know the fixed market isnt to broad of an area to shop in. how big do the mil dots look in the scope mark? im thinking that may be a good choice i think i would go with a 16x i guess

There's a Swift, which is in your budget, has decent glass and a great warranty....but the eye relief is a little tight on high recoil units.

I'd say about like a Buck Master, little better. I think it would be a great scope for the intended purpose.
Get some Burris LOW XTR 30mm rings.

I'm with Mark here for sure P, The SS is a great scope for the money, the glass is better than the FFII, slightly less than the 4200 chances are you'd never see the difference. The Mil-Dot is a great reticle Bro, You start using it and you will love it. The XTR rings are fantastic and will let you mount the scope low on the barrel. All around you'll be very happy.

Any chance you can find a used weaver target scope maybe on one of the target benchrest sites?

On the ones you plan to use the scop on. Are they the Weaver style? If so no problem.

Well provided that you have the same spacing from one to the next, if not switch them over to picatinny bases and then no worries.

Get a different scope for the two Ruger styles, provided they are of like actions. On the others get picatinny bases. That will solve the problems there. That's alot of zeroes to keep track of Bro.

You could become the new Goody's spokesman. Have you considered getting an agent?

im not worried about keeping track of zero's, but changing the rings all back and forth may get old but i really think a better high powered scope would make testing loads a lot more accurate and i would get a better end result.

I wouldn't worry about the rings. If you use a pic base the rings would be universal to the rifles you put the scope on Bro. all pic bases are set at a constant. The problem would only be on the Ruger styles.
