If anyone could please recommend a scope from the following list

Bushnell Legend 3-9x40

Simmons AETEC 2.8-10x44

Weaver V-Series 3-9x38

Weaver V-Series 2-10x38

From what I have read the scopes above are fully multicoated and one pice tube construction.

My budget is of around US$ 150 and the scope is going to be used in a Ruger MKII 77 chambered in .270Win

The current rings of the rifle are the Ruger Original ones, Medium Height, should there be any problem mounting the Aetec with the 44mm objective?

Thanks to all.

Fernando

You're right they all have fully multi-coated lenses and all have one piece tubes. As far as brightness goes they will all be around 90 percent light transmission. My choice would be the Aetec because it has the 44obj lens which would allow for brighter images on the higher powers. The Aetec also has the Aspherical lens coatings. Simmons says this allows for a wilder field of view, and brighter sharper images across the field of view. The Aetec also has that scope in illumination if that is any concern of yours....ILLUMINATED.

 

With that 44obj it'll be real close. We couldn't tell you for sure without having your gun in hand. If you do go with the Aetec you could just wait until you get the scope then see what you would need to do. If you would need higher rings we could set you up with some. Its really the only way with all the combinations of scopes....guns...mounts etc.

Hi Brady, thanks for your advice, I also like the Aetec, the only concern is that it is a quite heavy scope...about 4oz more than the Weaver's....I think I´ll go for it...

Good choice, that 4oz will pay off for you in optic quality.

Hi Brady, do you know if there should be any problem mounting the Aetec on my Ruger MKII77 in .270 win? I've read a review in some web page and regarding the optics there was no problem, but it said it was a short scope and may need

"offset mounts are needed for long action rifles". Should I have any problem using the standrad Ruger rings?

Thanks,

Fernando

i think i would just ignore that, you should be fine mounting it on you ruger, i think that is just a little BS, people being mis-informed, in some cases that may apply, but you dont have anything to worry about.i have a freind that has one mounted on a rem 700 300 wm. i think he used medium rings too, but i wouldnt swear by it.

According to this link the medium rings should allow objectives upto 42mm, could the Aetec (44mm) fit correctly?

I measured the distance from the barrel to a 40mm obj. scope (Trophy 3-9x40), and there were about 4mm of space, so a 44mm obj. should mean 2mm wider in both directions (upper and lower edges of the obj.) Am I correct?



Finally, I was also interested in the Burris Fullfiled II, is this a better scope than the Aetec?

Thanks,

Thats a good possibality..... I went down to the shelf and measured the throat of the scope. It was just under 5 1/4".... the actual length of the scope is only 12". So it's a fairly short scope and will be pretty close. Before you spend the extra 80 bucks with extension rings, you could just get the scope and see if it will work with the factory rings. That way you could be for sure if the mediums would be high enough and you would know if you need the extension. If you would need a high we could set you up with some high extension rings that would definitely get the scope on there. If the mediums look like they will get it on but still need the extension we have those as well.

 

Here are the stock #'s on the rings

 

RM Ruger #1 & 77/22 High Ext: Leu52301

RM Ruger #1 & 77/22 Med Ext: Leu52306

On paper the Burris may look better. It may also be a tad bit more rugged and built stronger. Get them in the field and you wont notice much if any difference. Each scope offers a plus that the other doesn't. It would really be a toss up between the two. If your a Burris man go with the Burris if your a Simmons type guy go with the Simmons. Personally I would stick with the simmons... it just offers a little more and can be more versatile.
