I am looking at four different 3x9 scopes for a Tikka T3 hunter in .308. By budget is $225 or less.
I have four that I've narrowed it down to:

Sightron SII (new) - $205 shipped
Nikon Monarch (used, I believe it is a couple of years old) - $200
Leupold Vari-X II (older model, used) - $175-200 shipped
Leupold VX-I (new) - $200

They all have similar warranties and have heard very good things about all of them. Any comments or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
Please help me choose. I suffer from buyers remorse.

I'd get the Sightron SII, or a Nikon Team Primos ($200 on SWFA)....pass on the second-hand nikon and low end leupolds IMO.  And welcome to the OT!!!

Nikon Primos in a good move ..Find a 4200 Elite under $250 ..or a 3200 Elite over the VX-1 or older vari X II ,  or grab a Weaver V-10 ( 2-10)

If you don't mind the BDC, I'd go with the Nikon Primos, otherwise I'd go with the SII from SWFA, our host for this site!
