Hey All,


I have a Savage 11FL .308 with open sites amd am looking to upgrade the glass. Had a cheap 4x14x40 BSA on it for a while but have since decided to upgrade the glass. Intend to use it for mulies this Winter with a potential 3-400 engagement in mountain shaded terrain with a 60 degree temp differential. My initial budget is 250-400.


Any suggestions are welcome...originally I was considering either a Bushnell 3200 4x12x40AO or Nikon 4x12x40AO UCC Monarch. The Nikon was winning out on the basis of warranty over the Bushnell but they disappeared so I began considering the 3.3-10x44 but have a concern about barrel\Leaf clearance. ifle-scope.aspx iflescope.aspx


Any others out there to recommend, I wasn't really impressed with the Leupolds for the price range I was in


Any help, comments, recommendations or sage advice would be appreciated

  If you are looking at the 3200 Elite, you should  be able to find the  Browning version in 4-12 AO for under $200. It is essentially the same scope, but  was recently discontinued.
