Okay well i am looking to put a new scope on my 300 WSM.  I am looking for a nickel plated scope within the $200-$350 price range.  Something in the 4-16x40mm range. If you have anything in mind let me know
 
Thanks

Welcome to The OT.
 
This scope/rifle to be used for big game hunting, I assume?
 
Here's a nice scope in your price range, but it doesn't have the magnification you wanted.

I believe you said "white tailed DEER"??  What kind of power do you need at 300 yards?  With Winchester Fail Safe 150gr 30-06, you are still carrying  over 900ft/lb energy at 800 yards.  800 ft/lb, while not the do all, end all, is considered a plenty good number for white tails, even big ones in Pennsylvania.  NO PROBLEM with your choice of weapon, I am a MORE POWER kind of guy, just don't understand your reasoning.  While I would almost never take a shot at that range, because I am a better hunter than that and can get closer, I COULD if I wanted to with 30-06 and stand a high probability of bringing down the target.  At 300 yds with the weapon/ammo above, you have nearly 2000ft/lb energy.  That is MORE than enough.     But the 300WSM will serve nicely.
