I need to invest in a rifle scope, but have a budget of $300.
Would you guys recommend Osprey?

What are the uses? Target, hunting, etc. What is the weapon and ranges usually encountered? You provide more info, and the folks on here can offer some suggestions for you to consider. BTW, welcome to the OT Forums! Excellent

Ive had one Osprey scope given to me. It had all the cool-looking stuff on it and had no idea how to use the 'rangefinding' reticle. Mounted it on a Savage 10FP .223 to see how it handled. It zeroed fine, after several rounds it began to shift impact. It continued to shift points of impact all morning. I remounted the SS 10x42 (non-HD), ranged targets with the mil-dot reticle, and the zeroed stayed right on for the rest of the day. Your budget is $300...the SS10x42 is $299.99.

TERRIBLE service
I had a problem with an osprey - called them and they said send it to us - I did - never heard from them again and got the run around when I called them - save your money
