What would be considered the best varmint scope for under $250 ?   This will be going on my 223.

 To be honest i believe that adding 50 dollars to your budget will get you into better glass. The bushnell 3200 5-15, weaver V-16 , and buckmasters 4.5-14 are all just over your budget. This is where I would start. of course you may want or need more power which is ging to either degrade scope quality if you stay in budget or is going to cost you more money.

I was thinking more along the line of 6-20x50mm.........any thing in the $300 range out there.

I don't know off the top of my head but a simmons scope might be what you need. Read the thread below this one for most of the general favorites. Most are 40 -44 mm scopes however but the coatings and quality of the glass make up for the change.

The simmons master class 6-24  and 7-21 are within your price range. They are supposed to be totally revamped and better than ever. they go for about 200 dollars at SWFA.

I like the new Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14x40 with the new side focus feature.

 The buckmaster SS scopes seem to be a good scope with good optics. Only time will tell if the side focus is durable but i would assume nikon has put it through its paces and it will live up to be a quality item.
