Looking for a low powered scope for a well used short barrelled 6mm Remington model 700. This rifles use will be close (kick'em up) deer hunting. Fast acquisition, wide f.o.v., rugged construction, and decent coatings are my goals but would like to keep it reasonably priced as this is a truck gun. Fixed powered are fine as well as low powered variables. Plain duplex is fine just heavy enough to be seen in the woods.
Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas!

Weaver v3 1-3x20 under $150.00 is rugged with a wide field of view.

I have this scope on a short barreled lever gun and it is a dandy.  Great glass, good adjustments, and great power range.

I have a 1.5-5x20 Leupold that is nice in the thick stuff. I would get the heavy plex reticle for better low light performance.
A fixed 4x like the Leupold 4x33 has always been good in the woods for me, too. Most of my woods deer have been shot with a 4x. Some were as close as twenty yards and on the move.

I'm not apposed to a dot and I'm not set on any praticular price point with the exception of overboard for this particular rifle.

A red dot is more forgiving of eye position than a conventional tubed scope.  Though red dots have no magnification (without some manner of magnifier), they are great for field of view and rapid target engagement.

If you need to take a really quick shot on a very close target, red dot is the way to go. 
 
An Accupoint 1-4 would be tough to beat in a conventional scope; however, if it were purely a close-range, rapid-target-engagement gun, I'd think hard about an Aimpoint or Trijicon reflex.

Thanks for the responses. It's looking like a Leupold FXII 4X33 is what I'm going to go with. Having had so much success with Leupold scopes in the past was a factor that I couldn't ignore and being American made gave it an advantage over some others.
Thanks again and have a safe and Happy New Year!
