Hello everyone,

 

I am trying to determine which scope to get for a new .243 Win varmint rifle and would greatly appreciate your ideas. The rifle will be used mainly for varmint/pdog hunting to 500 yds. max (mostly 100-350yds.), and casual target shooting at 100 yds. I would like to stay under $300 if possible.

 

The scopes I've seen that look good so far are:

SWFA 10x42 Super Sniper $249

Nikon 6-18x40 Buckmaster (on samplelist) $219

Nikon 4.5-14x40 Buckmaster (on samplelist) $219

Browning 5-15X40 AO $229 (competing site)

 

Also a question to Chris @ SWFA, will the refurb Nikons still have the No-Fault warranty?

 

Thanks everyone for your help... :)

Hello Exporter

 

This scope has the Optical performance of the Fullfield II and is made by Burris.

I feel this will be a nice scope within your budget and will fullfill the needs for your

intended aplications.
