I just got a new remington 700 sps in .270 that i am wanting to fit a 30mm tube scope on. Please don't ask why not a 1" tube. My presonal prefrence, plus i also have a remington 700bdl 30-06 with a zeiss conquest on it. Anyway, I'm wanting to sit a 30mm on the new one. I'm wanting something say atleast a 3-9x50 and higher and like a variable power scope. This will be a hunting scope, thus i'll need something built tough and can handle the pressure of handling mishaps. As it stands now, i won't be shooting anything over 500 yards more likey 300 yards and closer. And i will so far only be hunting whitetail deer for now.

 

As for Price, I'll say anything from $600 bucks and under. Since this will only be hunting scope.

 

I've look at few already and i can't make up my mind.

 

I've looked at the barska

Leapers?

Super Sniper

Leupold

Burris

Bushnell

Nikkon

and Kahles

 

And i can't make up my mind on which one i want. This is why i need ya'lls help.

 

Like i said, no lower than a 3-9x50, say something in a 4-14x50, or 3-12x50, or a 3-12x56

 

In other words, If someone gave you $600 and told you to get a riflescope what would you get? I need the best bang for my buck.

Your at a slight disadvantage (money wise) demanding a 30mm tube when a 1" tube would more than suffice for your purposes AND meet your budget, friend.

 

30mm tubes are more expensive. An expense you really can't justify by your post.

Don't get me wrong, I love 30mm tubes too.

 

The only advantage to a 30mm tube is for ADJUSTMENTS! That's all. Period.

Shooting out to 500 yards, or less as you say, a 1" tube will be GTG.

(Good To Go)

 

I say throw another Conquest on that stick and start shooting!!  

 

cheaptrick.......out.

I second Steelbenz recommendation on the Nikon Gold Series. I have two and they are the best 30mm scopes I have.
