Hi,this is my first post.I am new to deer hunting and need some good advise.I use a Remington 700 in .30-06 and right now it has a cheap 3x9 x 40 scope on it.I will be changing this out after the season is over.My price range will be around $400.00.The area where I hunt offers shots up to 200 yds.I really need the scope to be durable,and stay sighted in;light gathering is not quite as important for my application as durability.My question is : what scope would be best for my application in this price range? I dont know a whole lot about scopes yet,and will put alot of faith into advice given on this forum.Thanks in advance,Josh

I would check out a Burris or a Bushnell 4200.  I have a Winchester Model 70 in .30/06 with a 2.5-10x40 Bushnell 4200.  I can't think of many scopes better for the money!

I agree with gozarian on this one. If you can find a conquest 3-9x40 it may be a toss up in my opiniion. Elite 4200 is a great scope.
