Hello, new to the forum so go easy on me. Here is my problem, I have a 300 win mag bull barrel for my encore and plan on going on a hunt for Black Bear in Alaska. My shots should range from 75yds to 400+. I own a Nikon Omega Scope 3x9 with the BDC 250 and am impressed with it. I also own a Burris fullfield II 4.5x14 which does the job. All which are busy on other rifles. I only have about 400$ to spend due to the expense of the hunt, any suggestions would be great.

wait and see what the new nikons bring would be my choice unless you really want a scope now.

When is your hunt planned?  Sightron makes a great SII in a mag, range as the Fullfied II that you have that would fit your budget, with much better optics.  Not the Big Sky version, they are more expensive and you are likely to find a deal on the non-Big Sky models.  I like the Fullfield IIs, except for the cheesy turret adjusments.  You almost have to get out a magnifying glass to see which way up and down and left and right is.  I know I shoud remember, but I alway like to double check.  The present Monarch sale here at SWFA would fit your budget in the same mag. range.  But, I agree with pyro6999, if your hunt is away off, you may want to wait to see what Nikon brings out, if you want a Nikon, remembering they will be more expensive.

Thanks for the advice, the hunt isn't for a few more months. I think I will take your advice and lay low and see what Nikon comes out with. I will also look at what Sightron has to offer. I do agree with Dolphin in that the turrets on the fullfield II are not to impressive.Thanks

I went ahead and read some reviews and did some investigating. And I think im going to get a Sightron II 4.5-14x42mm. Seems like the consensus is that they are excellent scopes for the price. Any input on them would help me in my decision. Thanks for the advice pyro6999
