Hey guys I haven't on here in a while but I need some help. I have three rifles and three scopes, but I'm sure which scope to use on which rifle.
 
Rifles:
Tikka T3 7mm-08
ARperformance 6.8 SPCII 16" upper on a Spike's lower
Bushmaster Predator 20" heavy barrel 1:8 twist 5.56 on another Spike's lower
 
Scopes:
Nikon Buckmaster 4.5x14x40sf BDC
Nikon ProStaff 3x9x40 BDC
Redfield 3x9x40 Accu-Range
 
I just picked the Redfield up this week. I was going to get another Nikon ProStaff, but I figured I would try the Redfield. I have heard great things about them since Leupold bought them out.

I ment to add that the Tikka and the 6.8 will mostly be used for deer. The 6.8 from 0-200yrds, and the 7mm-08 will be use from 0-500yrds. The 5.56 I haven't decided if I will only use it for varmint or for medium size game as well.

IMO:
Buckmaster on the Tikka (best long range scope of the bunch)
Prostaff on the .223 AR rig (the BDC is handier for long range. If this is one of the new finger adjustable Prostaff models, doubly so)
Redfield on the 6.8.

If the prostaff is one of the older coin adjust models, I might swap it and the Redfield, which has a superior turret to the older Prostaff. It depends on whether you use the BDC, or if you prefer to dial your ranges. The redfield is probably better for dialing, the Prostaff better if you're a BDC shooter. Whichever you prefer, put it on the longer range rig of the two.
That's my .02!
