 Hi,

I need some help. First I have a Savage 11G in 308. I'm still breaking it in but want to put a half way decent scope on it soon.

I've been reading as much as I can find but am still unsure if parallax and adj. obj. are the same thing , I'll be using this rifle to shoot to about 400 yds max. I'd like a 3-10x40 to 4-14x42 or something in those parameters.

I wouldn't want to put more than $350.00 approx. in this scope.

Could someone advise me of parallax / adj. obj. and what scope you might recommend?

 

Thanks

SS 10X. Right price, good optics, does what you want it to do.  Better fit than the Monarch, in my opinion.

 

My recommendation.

I have a Savage in .308. Great beater gun. I've tried several scopes on it. A 3x9x40 is the perfect scope for that rifle. It came down to a 4x12x40 Nikon Monarch and a 3x9x40 Zeiss Conquest. I think for the money these are the two best scopes (maybe include an Elite 4200). You could pickup a Monarch for around $300. You might find the Conquest on the samplelist for a little more. Also, the parallax adjustment is nice for target or varmint shooting. If you're deer hunting it's just one more thing to mess around with (not a good thing).

I didn't see "hunting" in the original post.

 

All those metioned would be servicable, I like the SS in that price range - though a 3-9x40 Conquest would be a nice choice too.

Last time I checked they still had the 5.5x16 44mm Monarch still on sale.  Little too much magnification and a little large for that rifle, but a good buy.  Ideally, I would stick with a standard 3x9 or something close to it.  The Bushnell Elite 4200 2.5x10 40mm would fit into your budget, just barely, but would be a great scope for that rifle.

Hey Jisco,
I know you said you only wanted to spend $350 but if you save little more I have a Zeiss conquest 3.5-10-
44 that is on my 308 that I would part with for $400.Just an idea.The scope is really bright and sharp.

I appreciate all of your opinions / replies.

I've pretty much decided to go with a Nikob with 10 to 14 on the high end on magnification.

Thanks a bunch, you've been a big help.
