The BSA Sweet 17 line of scopes are made specifically for 17 caliber rifles.  The BSA scopes utilize a bullet drop cam (located on the elevation adjustment) instead of a hold over reticle like the Burris Ballistic Plex.  It takes a little more time to compensate this way but it is just as effective.  There is a noticeable optical / mechanical difference between the two as well, hence the considerable price difference.  The BSA Sweet 17 scopes are a lot of fun for plinking and informal target shooting.  The Burris has the edge for more serious target or low light hunting.  Both are great scopes for 17caliber rifles but they are made to serve two different markets.

BSA Sweet 17 2-7x32.....$59.95

BSA Sweet 17 3-12x40 A/O.......$89.95

BSA Sweet 17 6-18x40 A/O.....$109.95 comes w/ FREE 15 piece professional boresighter (limited time only)

.17 Rem... What a great but often overlooked gun.  I have used it for fox and even coyote hunting for years.  Lightning speed and no exit wound.  It is fun for prarie dogs, too. 

 

I would strongly discourage putting something like a BSA or Simmons on it.  You will regret it.  Why cheat yourself and buy crap? 

 

If $350 is your limit, you can buy a decent Leupold VX-II or spend a few dollars more and get a Burris Signature Select.  You won't regret purchasing a quality scope.
