I'm looking for a new scope for my Tikka T3 Varminter in 6.5x55. I hunt deer and pigs in close country and ferals (varmints- goats,rabbits,foxs,dogs) in large open areas here in Australia.I'm looking for scope with a excellent FOV with quick target acquisition in the range of 2.5/3 to 12/14.with good low light performance. The Burris Signature Select 3-12x44 was considered ,but have seen many mixed reviews.Long range shooting would be around 350 yds with 76gn bullets. I would prefer a lighted reticle / pref a ranging reticle ,but it is not essential.I would like to stay with low mounts so 40-44 objective lens size. My price range is up to US $900  

Thanks to all in advance !

i have two scopres for this type of hunting & love my 6.5x55.  the burris eurodiamond 1.5-6 with the illuminated reticle & the bushnell 4200 firefly 1.5-6.  the bushnell has been discontinued but may still be found (try competitor) but the burris is one beautiful scope with outstanding clarity and illumination.  6x may not seem like mutch but don't do too much with one scope.  a wide FOV is much to be desired. oh i'd stay far away from and burris below the ED or BD, the optics are dreadful in comparison.

Thanks Cuft

                  The Burris Euro Diamond has mixed reviews also; I would love a good quality scope in that 3-12 range without going larger than a 44mm lens I might even consider 2.5-10 if there is something special out there.

I just had a Leupold FXII-6X36mm scope sent tothe Custom Shop at Leupold for a set of German #4 reticles.  It will be going on my custom 6.5X55 after the stockmaker carves the stock.
