I have recently bought a .257 weatherby magnum in the weatherby vanguard and I am now searching for a combination of rings mounts and scope to match. My question is are the vangaurd mounts sufficient for the magnum punch. Also this is my first time actually combining a new scope, mounts, rings and rifle. For a scope i am looking for something in the 400 to 600 dollar range. I know what a burris, nikon buckmasters, and Leupold vx3 can do but also am interested in pentax white tail unlimited, weaver grand slam and bushnell 4200's. I bought the weatherby magnum to reach out and touch and want a scope that can allow this. I am interested the best scope in the 3-14 power 44-50mm for my naked .257 mag.

How about an Elite 4200 4-16x40 or Zeiss Conquest 3.5-10x44?

Great gun for the money--

The Talley Vanguard mounts will handle the recoil and are easy to mount,,could also try Warne or Leupold ( if using dual dovetail- get reversible mounts -- same as

Rem 700 mounts)..

Optics wise,,lots of possibilities- Elite 4200's,,Burris Signature,,Leupold Vari X III,,Zeiss Conquest,, etc

The Elite 4200's are considered a best buy with the rainguard feature , 95% lite transmission, and durability for less $$

I bought the Pentax Whitetails Unlimitied 3.7-11X42. IT was junk if u ask me, it was about the same as my 18 year old simmons 44 mag 3.5-10X44. So stay away from the pentax.

Yeah, J_Man_66 has a point there.  I haven't looked through the Burris Fullfield II yet but I would wager that FOR THE MONEY, it would be a tough one to beat!  Another scope I want to try is the Weaver Grand Slams.........I've heard they are a lot of bang for the buck!  But, if you want to step up to a whole new level, you probably ought to check out a Zeiss Conquest in a 4.5-14x44 or 50!
