just got me a bushmaster varminter, now i need a scope for it.  I want something versatile but semi simple. im open for price range under 400 $ i seen a 4-16 hy-lux varminter the other day. i know nothing about them.  was a good looking scope , just want the skinny on them.  i even checked out the uni dial for multiple settings for different loads.  most of my shooting is for target and random varmints. Ranges ??? 100 yards to 500 ???

what, 3-9, and 2.5-10 scopes for a 100-500 yard varmint rifle?
 
im setting up the exact same thing, i got a 17HMR as a 0-150 yard varmint gun, and put a 3-9 on it, thats about perfect for that range on varmints if you ask me, and im setting up a R700 SPS varmint 22-250 for 100-500 yard's on varmint, and i will be getting a 6-18X50 nikon buckmaster for it. its $50 under your max price range, has great glass, tracks perfect, and will do 100-500 just great.
 
you need more than your typical hunting scope to get a varmint at a 1/4 mile though.

If the rifle is a dedicated varminter, I can highly recommend Bushnell Elite 4200 6-24x40AO or 4-16x40.

well for now i got a center point 4x 16 from walmart under 70 $ . its an accurate cheap scope that  seems to hold a very tight group at 150 yards.  im still tinkerin with the loads. imgonna to stretch her out tomoroow at 300 to 400 yards. so far i love my gun.

I have a RR varmint EOP topped with a Kahles 3-10 CL. 500 yards has not been a problem on PDs when the wind is consistant.

 I agree more totally with the 6-24  Ilya ... what I forgot to add on my post was the max 10x range on the other 4200 ... my bad . At 500 or 500 + yards I think the 6-24 is for more useful especially on some small varmint shots . Excellent   And the 6x end is great for larger targets . I use a 6.5 -20 x nikon .... love it .
