I've narrowed my search down to a few scopes in the 125-260$ range. everyone keeps telling me to save and spend more and I probably should but I think right now this is all I want to spend for a scope for this new rifle.
I have a new Remington 700 SPS buckmasters 7mm rem mag.
I am looking at the Nikon 3-9x50 prostaff
and a Leupold 3-9x50 rifleman
I am also looking at the DNZ Game reaper scope mounts
I know these are low end scopes but if anyone has any experience with these or any other suggestions for scopes in this price range. Will these scopes hold their zero with the recoil of the 7MAG? is the 50mm objective worth the extra money? Do i need a med or high dnz mount for the 50mm. are the dnz mounts any good?
 
 
I also have a 270 I was thinking of getting a illuminated reticle scope for I was looking really cheap for these
I found the Bushnell Banner 3-9x50 ir red /green
and the Barska Huntmaster pro 3-9x50, and Ridgeline 3-9x42
will these cheap scopes hold zero,not fall apart, and are they clear enough to hunt with?
 
Thanks,
Mike

For your 7mm this has much better glass than the prostaff or the rifleman. This is the old Monarch repackaged.

or if you would rather not have the bdc reticle

And for at least a halfway decent lighted reticle scope on the cheap

Vortex has OUTSTANDING customer service and will stand behind the product.
Leave the Barfska's to fail on someone else.

A 50mm Objective on a 9x scope is more a marketing gimmick than anything else.

I haven't personally used the DNZ but many people like them. MED will work fine for 40mm.

Most medium rings will work with scopes up to 50mm, but not all.  Just remember when buying a scope to choose quality over quantity first.  I realize that not all of use can afford Euro glass, but there are some great choices in the $250.00 range.  The samplelist.com may offer another alternative.

Be sure and check out samplelist.com. It is owned by SWFA. A 2.5-10x44 Monarch is only $299 . The Monarch is a lot better scope than the prostaff.
