Subject: Advice for my 270
Date Posted: September/02/2010 at 18:09
Looking to upgrade my scope on the 270, I have a Nikon Monarch on my 223 and love it but need to save money on this one. So I am looking for a 3-9x40 or more so a 3-9x50 that will do the trick and not break the bank any suggestions.

Looking to spend around 200 but under stand that I will go over, the Nikon Prostaff 3-9x50 seems like a decent deal......

Hard to beat the value on this scope.

+1 !!!!

I just purchased the 4-12x40 myself and its a GOOD clear scope. I only got to play with it for a few boxes as my shoulder went out shooting my 30-06 Mossberg. I had to send the mossberg back to get some trigger work as I had a 6.5lb pull!!! You won't find a better scope for the money!! I have a Zeiss Conquest 3-9x40 on my Browning .270 and this Viper does compare with it. I'll give the edge to the Zeiss..but its also $160 more---Bboy623

Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

+ 1 on the vortex suggestion, a good deal. If you are really on a budget, I might suggest the pentax pioneer that is on sale. The 3-9x40 is $109 . I bought one of the 4.5-14x42 for my 223 and am very happy with it, a lot of scope for the $$. These are apparently rebadged fullfield II's built by Burris for Pentax. I am fighting the urge to buy one of the 3-9x40's for my 308 which serves as a backup /deer camp loaner.

There are lots of great buys our right now.  The Vortex, probably the "fan" favorite.  There are also other great ones too.  Redfield, Bushnell Elite 3200 & 4200, Sightron Big Skys, several.  But bang for the buck vote is vortex.  Ironclad warranty and exceptional glass.

I still haven't heard a good argument as to why people don't like thet 270 win. I've heard a lack of different bullet weights, but that can't be it.Big Smile

Thought you would have suggested a re-barrel job.

True enough although some rebarrel just cause they are bored. Also depends on what you have in the original donor such as a pillar bedded McMillan stock, trigger work or replacement trigger, action truing etc...
