I am looking for a scope for my Savage 30-06. I am looking for something tough, mid price range, and it has mil dots. Any suggestions?

Possibly a Burris XTreme tactical or a Bushnell Elite tactical? Not sure of your definition of mid-range tho.

Sightron has the S1 3-9x40 on closeout right now at SWFA for $100.  It has a mildot reticle.

Here you go:

Also, take a look at sightrons awesome deals going on, probably your best bet. I have no experience on the SS but I hear nothing but good things about them. I hope to have one some day soon.

Don't forget the sample list

I am assuming this is a hunting rifle... Unless there is some overriding need for mil dot (in which case SS3-9 is far and away your best choice) go with this. You won't regret it. Nothing else even comes close in this price range and I wouldn't sacrifice quality just to have mil- dot. If you must have mil dot check the sample list for a 3-9 SS and spend a little extra.
