Im gonna buy a scope for my savage 243. This is a secondary rifle that want be used unless my main or my dads gun screws up. Im only going to spend 150 on the scope. My first thought is a 3x12x50 konus which ive no info on or im gonna go with a bushnell banner 6x18x50. My dad owns a banner so i know what it brings so if anyone has any info on the konus could u please give me some advice.

Given your limited budget and the fact that it won't be a main gun I'd stick with something that has a decent backign and reviews. 
There are some  Redfields that fall in your rang, I've had a 3-9x40 from them and it was a nice little scope,
 
There is also the Nikon Prostaffs -
 
And even th Sightron S1's

For the money you want to spend, I would stick with a 2-7x or a 3-9x.  Reason being is cheaper glass looks like crap when you have it at high magnification.  It may look great in the 3-9x range, but when you start magnifying it more, it really starts to show all the flaws and problems with the glass. 

You can get pretty decent lower mag scopes in your price range.

Get the Elite 4200 on sale for $170 or so and be done with it.  Great glass, tough, and rainguard.  What else do you need?

The 3-9 4200 is being re-done as simply 3-9 Elite. SWFA has a few of the 4200's left and will take care of you. 972-726-7348
