Today is my first day on the forum. I recently purchased a Savage Model 114 in 300 Win Mag with the Accutrigger. I hunt mostly in open areas in Eastern Wa.  I am shopping for a slightly used scope in the $500-$600 range. I have looked at the Trijicon Accupoint 3-9x40 in mil dot and the Leupold VX-L in 3.5-10x50 in Boone and Crockett. Both appear to be great scopes that will fit my needs. Anyone have opinions on why one is a better choice than the other? Should I be looking in a different direction? Thanks......

Either scope will serve you well however know that there is huge difference between a VXIII and a VX3 the new glass used in the VX3 is far better.  Also if you shoot longer distances you may wish to consider a scope with tactical knobs that you can use to dial in correction.  http://swfa.com/SWFA-SS-3-9x42-Tactical-Riflescope-P41044.aspx  I put one of these on each of my sons  300 WM hunting rifles and it is a fine choice for that use.  I do also like the illumination of the Trijicons but I find I like the 2.5-10x56 much better than the 3-9x40 version.  Eastern, Wa. can have some areas where really long range shots could be made I would rather have the tactical knobs to dial in correction.

Thanks for the info. I will have to take a look at this scope. I do like the idea of the tall tactical hand adjustable turrets. I had actually considered the Nikon Monarch X as well, but ruled it out due to the price. Any idea who is making the SWFA scope? How is the warrantee? The Leupold warrantee is amazing.
