    Posted: March/05/2006 at 11:49
I'm new to this forum, so bear with me. I am looking for a mid priced scope for a 22-250. I would like a variable powered one but since my pocketbook is limited I would like to purchase the best scope in my price range of $300 to $400. I am considering the following scopes:
Nikon 6-18 x 40 Buckmaster
Weaver 6-20 x 40 Grand Slam
Sightron 6.5-20 x 50 SS II
Alpen 6-24 X 50 Apex

Can anyone give me their opinions on the above scopes or even suggest one that's not on my list.
Thanks in advance for the help.

Fred

Don't forget the Leuopold VX II 6-18 at about $450.

If I read right his price was higher than your option.I have been getting the same answer on every site.Im looking to spend about the same max. and they keep pointing me in the same direction.Im going with a  mueller.When I bought my sightron 3 years ago know one knew anything about them.Im gonna roll the dice and get a mueller.Let you know how it goes.

1.     Bushnell 5-15x50 Elite 3200   $328.95 multi x, 5” shade
2.     Bushnell 5-15x40 Elite 3200   $338.95 fire fly 5” shade
3.     Burris Fullfield II Tac (Olive Drab) 4.5x14-42 “Ballistic Plex”, 1”, $377.95
4.     Burris Signature Select 4-16x44 “Ballistic Plex”, 1”, Adjustable Objective
       $438.95


You didn't say what you were going to shoot at or at what ranges, but unless you are trying to throw down on prarie dogs at 1000m a lower power scope should work well and save you some money. 4 to 6 power by 14 to 18 power supposedly works great for varmint ranges that a 22-250 is used for.

Go ahead and run, you'll only die tired.

Thanks for the help people. I have made my purchase and ordered a Nikon Buckmaster 6-18 with a TD reticle. I'll let you all know how it works out.
