I just purchased a new Tikka T3 stainless (lefty) in 300 wsm.  What scope would some of you guys recommend?  I've been looking at Burris FFII, Leupold VXIII 4.5-14x40, Nikon Monarch, and Zeiss Conquest.  All of the scopes I've looked at are in the 4-16 power range, with the exception of the Zeiss.  I'd like to keep the price under $450, I'm on a tight budget.  Any suggestions as far as scope recommondation would be appreciated.

Excellent choice by seattlesetters.  A better choice, imo, but more expensive would be the following.  I have the 50mm objective version on a 30-378Wby. mag. and it performs flawlessly.

424164M Bushnell 4-16x40 Elite 4200 Rifle Scope Bushnell 4-16x40 Elite 4200 Rifle Scope
  • Matte
  • Multi-X
  • 1"
  • Rainguard
  • Adjustable Objective
  • Free 5" Sun Shade w/ Purchase

flip a coin, those are two fine scopes above.

 

i have had good luck w/ 4200's.

 

the sale on the monarch UCC's is very attractive.
