I am searching for a scope to put on my 300 Ultra Mag. I don't have a bunch of $$$ to throw on it right now. I know everyone says put a $600 + scope but I just don't have that much cash floating around at the time. I would really like to get a 4-12 power or something very similar. Basically I want to stay between $200 -$350
I was thinking about the folllowing scopes.......

Millett TRS-1 4-16
Vortex Diamondback 4-12

any thoughts or suggestions would be much appreciated

NB, have you checked out the Bushnell 4200, 3-9X.  They are selling at Le Barons for $318.00 - pretty well thought of scope for that kind of money.  Suspect it's coming down because they are pushing the 6500 series.

I did see the 4200 but am really hoping to get something out to 12X but if I can't find something I may go with the 3-9 power range. Just be nice to have the extra range as the ultra mag will really reach out there. Most likely all my shots will be within 500yrds

The bushnell 4200 3-9x is a great scope and it is being sold on our sponsors site SWFA.com for $249.  I have two of them and they are fantastic scopes.

For the money you will never beat the optics of the 3-9x 4200.  It is up there with the scopes in the $400 to $500 range.  Good glass will do you more good at 9x than okay glass at 12x.  Your image will be clearer and brighter and you will just be able to see it better even with a little less power. Trust me on that I have been though all this several times my self, quality glass makes all the difference in the world.

Just so you guys know I am not pushing a competitor.  We cannot buy from SWFA in Canada as much as we would like to.  Would never make reference to a US competitor.

....................Don`t know if you can get these in Canada for the price you wish to pay...............Look at the Weaver Classic V series or the Burris FF2 series............High powered variables in both.

Thunbs%20Up, the 4200 3-9 is an excellent scope for the money.
