What is going to be the primary use of this rifle? I love my Savage .300 wsm, but at only 6.5lbs before the scope it is pretty hard on a scope.

The Bushnell 4200's get alot of praise around here(I don't have any experience with one).And for the money Lueppies don't seem to be much of a bargain.

On the top end of you price range is the SS 3x9 which has great reviews, I have no personal experience using one yet but hear great things about it.  I do like the Bushnells and have used them. Nikon also has a few Monarchs that will work for your application as well.

I gave a 4200 3-9x40 to my son for his 300 WSM and he loves it! I have 2 others and they are both really good if 3-9 is enough magnification for your needs. I shot my bull elk with one on a 300 weatherby this last fall.
