I'd like to stay as close to $200 as possible for a decent variable scope in the 3-9 area with adjustable parallax. Probably a tall order but any help would be appreciated.

There is also the possibility of it seeing use on center fire rifles in the 30-06 power range as well. It's main use will be on the .17 though.

I went with the 2-7x on my .17.

I've shot with the Redfield Revolution.  No complaints.  However, it was on a .22.  I suspect it will hold up to 30-06 just fine.

I have a Redfield Revenge 4-12x42 Accurange scope on my 93R17.

The glass is pretty good.  Very good for a $200 scope.  The turrets have good movement and positive clicks.

The power range adjuster is very tight but it could just be mine.  It is smooth.

The one reason I would not recommend it is the eye box.  It's pretty picky.

Other than the finicky eyebox I like the scope a lot.  For shooting off a bench it's no big deal since you can take your time.

Had I a do over I would have given a serious look at the Vortex diamondback in the same price range.

I have a 17 HMR , and I love this cartridge. I would recommend a fixed 6x, but if you want a 3-9x the Vortex Diamondback gets great reviews in your budget range. http://swfa.com/Vortex-3-9x40-Diamondback-Rifle-Scope-P10823.aspx

If you can come up just a bit, the Sightron SII is a great choice. I'm using several of them, and have been very satisfied.

Swift Premier line has several possibilities.  4-12, 4.5-14.  There is a 3-9, but I think it has fixed parallax.
