 I have printed out the 08 and 09 riflescope rating scales but would like to get a little more "advice" with regards to my specific gun. I currently shoot a Savage model 99 250-3000 with a 3x Weaver scope that is mounted on a Pachmaur "flip off to the side" mount.  I would like to get a newer scope with better light gathering abilities "as my eyes are definitely not what they used to be".  I am mostly a weekend hunter and use the gun for white tail hunting in the open plains of eastern South Dakota. I guess I'm looking for the biggest bang for my buck. Price range, I realize that good money buys good products but "my" good money is hard to part with! I'm a tightwad and so I'm trying to convince myself to spend around $500 but would be much easier to convince myself in the $200-350 range. Final question, can I use the old Pachmaur mount? There seems to be no free play and I never flip it to the side. Let me know what ya think!

There was a 4x Zeiss Conquest on the sample list for around 275.

Thanks all, what's the general feeling of the sightron scopes, and how much better is the big sky with the climate control coating vs. the regular sightron II?
