I need the best rifle scope for 300 yards for target shooting and for the rifle is a savage rifle .223 55grain bullet with a 26" barrel, no multi dot scopes.

the target I am shooting from 100 200 300 yards

the target size is the bullís-eye size of a quarter at 100 200 300 yards need to see better and bring the quarter size target in closer not the hole target just from the black rings to the bullís-eye or just bullís-eye it's self

send info to

With no mil-dot reticles as part of your criteria, two excellent choices would be the Weaver T series or a Burris Signature Select with the Ballistic Plex reticle.

The Weavers come in fixed power up to 36X with fine taget crosshairs. (A word of caution: very high magnification greatly narrows the sight picture and magnifies error if you move, breathe or flinch.) For up to 300 yards, a 10X should be more than adequate.

The Burris you can get in 4-16 x 44. The Ballistic Plex is not dots, but actually graduated crosshairs that do not block the view with dots. Once sighted at 100 on your primary crosshair, you simply raise the rifle to the next crosshair mark for 200 and the third for 300. Check the ballistics on your cartridge to make sure. These crosshairs are a mite thicker than the Weaver target ones, but not so heavy you obliterate your view of the target.  Excellent clarity even at higher powers.


Good luck.
