I am new to this hunting world so I need a little advice from you experienced hunters or gun buffs.  I have read so many topics on scopes for which gun and come to the conclusion as always it is just preference. Any help will be appreciated. I would like to know which is the recommended scopes in a reasonable price range for a Winchester 300 WSM and a Winchester .270. I am looking in the neighborhood of $400.00 each. Thanks for any advice.

3-9X40 Zeiss Conquest, or maybe a 3.5-10x44 Conquest if you get lucky on ebay.

Thanks for the advice Grubb.  Will either one of them scopes be for both guns? Seems like Zeiss is the scope to have!

I did go to the latest gun show and there were a few venders trying to talk me into the Weaver Grand Slam 3.5-10x50. They said it was rated number one but didn't say who rated it. It seems like the Leupold scopes can be found everywhere. I have been checking out the VX ll 3-9x40. Any comparison to the Zeiss Conquest?

I would choose the Weaver Grand Slam over a VXII. If you read around here you will find a bunch of guys comparing the GS to VXIII's and not seeing much difference. You can save a few pennies by going with the GS and in my mind get a better scope. The Conquest will blow the VXII away. Not much to compare between those two.

conquest 3-9x40, or elite 4200 2.5-10x40, or both, they are about equal, and i beleave the 4200 is a bit clearer, and it also has the rainguard going for it.
