I have the Burris Fullfield II and the Nikon ProStaff.  For enexpensive scopes, they have both been great!  I took 2 antelope last year with the Nikon, 1 @ 260 yds & 1 @ 350.  It has a clear crisp picture and little to no "tunnel vision".  The Burris is new and is going on a new 25-06.  So far I love it.

Wow thanks so much! I just bought my first Bolt action (X-Bolt .270) and even though everyone says spend as much on glass, the budget is just not there for now. Maybe later after i have more practice with a scope. Inteneded purpose of the new purchase is mostly at the range but the rifle will see some boar hunting for sure and some deer. I go between cali and Ga so some shots in open spaces and others could be in the brush. That being said is the typical 3-9x40 the best route or should I be considering something else?
 
This is what I've looked at so any thoughts would be great!
 
Bushnell 4200 for $189 3-9x40
 
Vortex Diamondback $199 3-9x40
 
Burris FF II $219 3-9x40.........but also comes with free Binocs 8x32 i think
 
Redfield Revo 3-9x40 $169 acu range
 
Nikon Buckmaster BCR 3-9x40 $219
 
I'm just curious how the buckmaster and the 4200 compare to the rest of this field and for the money the best deal.......
 
Burris comes with free Binocs but would I be better buying the better scope and not get the deal?
 
Opinions on the acu range and BCR as better route?
 
thanks for helping out a newbie bolt guy

Out of those you have listed the 4200 will be the best optic IMO.  I have a couple of them and think they are very good scopes.  For $190 it is an awesome scope.  I paid $250 and $300 for my two 3-9x 4200s

If you can get the Elite 4200 for $189, go for it.

Out of the rest of your options I like the Diamondback and the Buckmaster.

koskin...I would love to see your answer because I now own a 4200 and a Nikon Team Primos...trying to decide which rifle they go on now (thinking of moving the 4200 onto the Team Primos platform, the Team Primos to the FFII spot, and FFII spot to a T/C Omega).  I think the 4200 is better than these 2 to my eyes, but the Nikon is extremely crisp (just no rainguard and it will be the last BDC type reticle I ever buy).

Since you own both the 4200 and Team Primos, you can decide for yourself which one works better for you.  That is the best way to go.

In my opinion, both of these are better than the scopes in the review that started this thread with Diamondback and FFII acquitting themselves pretty well.

But if we used English you would understand what we were saying.

That would kinda defeat the whole purpose of using Russian on an English speaking forum...
That would make talking about you behind your back soooo much more complicated Devil

It won't get that far.  If push comes to shove, I'll talk Dan into stopping by and paying Graham a visit on my behalf.  I know that he always wanted to repeat Wilhelm Tell's famous exploits except Dan would be using his 458 Lott...

Would have been great to see this review have included the Sightron S1 against the Vortex Diamondback as that could have been a real showdown!

I have both.  S1 is a good scope for the money, but head to head Diamondback is, in my opinion, a notably better product.

Thank you author for review. Much helps at choice of the sight.

 Excuse me, I not well dialect in english.

Илья, у меня пару вопросов близких к теме.

1. Есть ли у Вас опыт с прицелами Vixen? Склоняюсь к покупке Vixen 3-12x40 или Vortex Diamondback 4-12x40. В России они по цене будут примерно одинаковы.

 2. Вопрос по быстросъёмным кольцам. В Вашем обзоре на одной из винтовок прицел закреплён в кольцах Weaver Detachable (Weaver Sure Grip Detachable). Выдерживают эти кольца отдачу и повторяемость при при снятии-установке на винтовках .308 калибра и прицелах весом 370-450гр. Или надёжнее будет взять кольца подороже (Warne Maxima Quick Detach, Leupold QRW, Burris Zee Quick Detatchable)?

 Игорь.

Я никогда не видел прицелы Vixen, поэтому ничего не могу о них сказать.

Надёжнее взять Warne.
