I am looking at buying an inexpensive scope for my rifle.  I will only use this scope 2-3 times a year but I need it for long range shooting.  I am looking at Bushnell Banner 6x18x50, Simmons Whitetail 6.5x20x50 and Mueller Eraticator 8.5x25x50.  I will be mounting it on a 300 win mag and sighting it in at 400 yds.  I have always used Leupolds but the equal scope form the is around a grand.  Since I rarely use this rifle I was trying to save a little but.  I need an adjustable power scope because I may need tto use this scope in thick woods.  I will primarily use this scope/rifle for whitetail hunting.  I was wondering if any of the three brands would ne better for me?  I know I will not get the quality of my Leupolds, but I just want something I can use to get the job done.I

The Simmons Whitetail Classic is the best bang for your buck. Won't find a better deal for a $100.

 

Another scope to consider is the Nikon Buckmaster 6-18x40 with a side focus. They're listed at 349.95 but we're running a special on them. If you give us a call we can let you have it for 229.95.
