Okay I have a Browning short track .270 WSM that needs a scope.
I will be shooting anywhere from 25yrds-500yrds.
I want something bigger like a 50..no less than a 50. ex. 3x9x50 or 4x16x50 or 56
What do you guys recommend? I dont want to spend more than 250.00
thanks

FYI the first thing in determining your rifle scope would be to pick one that works best for your application, not to pick it by specs like 50mm obj.

the scopes recommended to you above are far superior than these two scopes.

The Vortex is a great scope if you can still find one at that price!
