Hi, I will be picking the new rifle up by the end of this month and have been looking for a new scope to mount on it in about the $250 range this  this will be my deer and coyote rig, for deer I shoot about 100 yards ,coyote will be farther maybe 200 yards. I have been looking at the nikon team primos ,  leatherwood multi-dial, mueller tac-2, swift premier, millett buck gold, and the busnell 3200. The cheaper I can get out of this the better cause I have a ultra slug gun on it's way and it will have to get scoped also.

The nikon or bushnell, would be ok.  I'd skip most of the others and try Weaver.  You don't need dials or tac anything for the ranges you will be shooting.  Your normal zero will be +/- 3 inches for those ranges and a bit beyound.

For that rifle and the ranges, and application. You'd have a very difficult time finding anything of better value than the Nikon Team Primos or the Bushnell 3-9 40 4200. Price and performance of these two scopes makes them very hard to beat.

Thanks, I was leaning towards the nikon , I have read alot of the posts about it and everyone seems to be impressed with it. I have been on here for a while but haven't ever posted anything, this well be my first big money ( for me) scope purchase.  I will be getting another scope for a savage 10fp in .308 and I already know pretty much that the SS is the one  to buy there.

EXCELLENT!!!!!!! You will like the Primos. If you want a variable scope for the 308. Hold off just a while. There will soon be a variable SS available.

+1 on the Elite 4200 3-9x40. Average low price is $250. You can get older El Paso Weaver scopes for less than $100 and they work pretty well. The Weaver V3 is another good choice if you like low power.

The Bushnell 3-9x40 has rainguard which is a plus over the Team Primos.I have both scopes,the Nikon Primos is a good value.

Do u think that the 4200 is worth $80 more then the team primos ? I was thinking that getting the nikon would allow me the extra cash for ammo, but if the 4200 is that much better.

   ngross10: Of the scopes you've listed, my suggestion would be either the Nikon or the Bushnell. 
  
   Bushnell's customer service is adequate....barely.  For all intents and purposes, Nikon's is non-existant.

The rain guard is a nice addition. Whether or not it's worth the added 80.00 dollars is a user decision. Some think so, some do not. If the rifle the scope is going on is to be your primary hunting tool, then it may well be worth the money. I will say though that you can get the anti fog wipes for scope lenses, and they work very well. Now if you hunt in areas where during the hunting season, it often rains. Well the rain guard may be that additional peace of mind.

Not sure about any of that..... There have been good and bad reports on both. I have used Bushnells (for a repurge) and they did fine..... I haven't had to use Nikons.... My youngest brother did, and had a brand new scope in 10 days. Like with any CS it depends upon whom you talk to, and whether that individual had a good night the night before. People are people, and you can never tell about external influences.

Bushnell CS is not terrible. When my 4200 was in for repair and parts on order they allowed me full credit towards another scope. You can buy ammo a little at a time but a scope is all at once and permanent. Well...I can't say permanent since I change them like the weather tryin' to find "the one."

Thanks for all the help, I think I might have to go with the nikon primos. When we have hunting season up here in michigan we don't get much rain, just snow. How are those bushnell trophys, my buddy said he had one that he would give me for a muzzleloader that I have but I was going to wait and pick up something nicer but if it would work ok I'll tell him that I want it.

The Trophy is a fairly decent scope. It doesn't have great glass, but is pretty well built, and you don't need great glass on a ML due to range limitations.
