I have just purchased a Win. Model 70 in 243 WSSM to use for varmits and deer hunting.  I want the best quality scope for the money and I have around $300 to spend.  All that I know that I want is a scope with a Mill dot recticle.  I am even considering the Super Sniper scope in 10X.  Any suggestions would be appreiciated.

well, for deer hunting, you dont want a 10X scope. how far out will you be varmint shooting??? if your not carrying it around alot, and dont mind a big scope, the elite 4200 4-16 is a nice scope, and so would be the black diamond 4-16 with the ballistic plex.

I shoot prari dogs out to between 500 and 600 yards with my 22-250 and will give it a try with this gun as well.  But most of the time I will be calling coyotes and using this as a deer gun out to about 400 yards.  I would prefer to keep the weight down as much as possible.

if your shooting out to 600 yards, give the black diamond 4-16 a look, it will drop compensate for out to 600, or 700 yards for the 243 WSSM, and its not all that big, or heavy.

for your application, i think the ballistic mildot is the best, and you will REALLY like it, its one of the nicest reticles there are, and the black diamond is one clear, and versatile scope, for deers, you can have it at 4X, then when you need to kill that dog out at 650 yards, just crank it up to 16X.

Around $300. mil dot scope for deer and varmint at fairly long distance???

 

I would suggest a vairable with good glass and coatings.  How about spending a little bit more and get:

 

Nikon Monarch 3.3-10x44 A/O, Mil-Dot, Matte Finish.....$389.99

 

Great scope optically, very good low light performance, low profile finger adjustable windage and elevation and very good power range for what you want to do.
