What power scope would you choose?  Used mostly for moose and deer.

Thanks,
Steve

What rifle are you putting it on?
 
Price range?
 
I would prefer a low range, 1-4X, 1-5X.

A fixed 4x would be more than adequate, from 30 feet to 300 yards.

I forgot to mention I may also need it for some close range brown bear "situations".  So I was thinking 1.5-6x42.

I would also consider the Weaver Classic Extreme with the #4 reticle.

I second this one.  It's simple, durable and the perfect balance for shots in that range.  The light transmission will be optimized and it won't cost an appendage or two.

This is what is on my 300 WM I'd rather have 6 than 4 but when you start talking bears I'm wanting a variable to get down to around 2.5 if not lower just in case of heavy brush and fast action.  If you can live with a top end of 4x this is a good choice.

Fixed 4X for close work on brown bear, possible heavy cover?  (one of his situations)

I am still leaning towards 1.5-6X42. The 42 could be the key do to low light here in AK during the hunting season.  I also would like to state that I will not be stalking any brown bear or have any desire to.  But with our large population of brown bear, you can get yourself in a pickle especially when having a dead moose on the ground.

If willing to spend $1500, look to Zeiss Victory and Swaro Z6 or PH.
 
You do indeed get more scope for more money.
