I recently purchased a new gun(dont hate on me its not a 1000 dollars but i feel it is way underrated).  I bought the ruger m77 all weather (synthetic stainless) in a 270 caliber.  Shooting remington accutip (a practical accurate hunting cartridge) im can put up some extremely tight groups at 150 and good groups even farther.  I was given a tasco world class and its a piece, it fogs like a mother and is very dark and dull.  Anyways, Im looking for a scope with no preference on min. magnification and a max. magnification of atleast 10 (10-12 would be perfect) and a 40-45mm objective.  I dont want to go broke over this scope, id rather not spend more than 200, but understand if this is impossible.  THE HARD PART IS I WANT THE SCOPE IN SILVER.  Any suggestions are appreciated.

It is kinda tough to find a silver scope of decent quality for around $200. 

The only ones I can think of is Sightron S2 3-9x42 which can be found in that price range and Burris Fullfield II 3-9x40 with nickel finish.  There is no pracctical difference between 9x and 10x magnification and if you want to stay in your price range these are pretty much your best choices with Sightron being a little better optically.

For a bit over $300 you can find Weaver Grand Slam 3-10x40 and Nikon Monarch 3-9x40.

Out of these four I'd go with the Sightron.

Could also try the Bushnell 3200 in silver. The rainguard coating really does work and optically it's pretty good for the cost.

Im willing to spend more than 200 dollars, and yes you are right there is no difference between a 10x and 9x but im would prefer 12x, as i hunt in central to west texas and 200-250 yard shots are the norm.  300 is a more practicle minimum number as far as money to spend.  There is a major lack in silver scopes out there.  My dad has a leupold 3-9x40 and he loves it.  I find it to be a great scope but still prefer the higher magnification levels

Your choices are pretty limited then.  You cantry to find a Sightron 4-16x42ST which has a silver finish, but I think it retails closer to $400.

I recomend Busnell elite 3200 3-9x40 silver for you M77.

This combo is a performance match,scope will be under $200.

This is not my main deer rifle.  I hunt with a remington 700 cdl 30-06, im going on a elk/mule deer hunt in colorado, and bought this 270 because i wanted a lightweight(syn stainless) and a 270.  I want a higher magnification scope than a 9x.  For most situations a 9x is all you will ever need but since this gun is set up for longer shots only i was hoping to find like a 12x

Nikon 4-14x40 Side focus Buckmasters Silver, $299

if you insist on the higher power for the .270 M77 but

my opinion is that this is not a performance match like

the one listed above. My opinion is that the 3200 is

a better scope than the buckmasters and cheaper.

There is not much section when it comes to quality

silver scopes in your price range.
